Cooking frozen potato waffles in the air fryer is super easy.
Take the required number of potato waffles out of the packet and pop them in the air fryer.
Depending on the size of your air fryer basket will depend on how many potato waffles you can cook at once. Smaller air fryers will normally fit two in the basket and larger normally will hold 4.
It is really important to not stack the waffles in the air fryer basket as this will prevent them from cooking through fully and will not get a crisp and even finish.
Also don’t be tempted to oil the basket when cooking frozen potato waffles. Store bought potato waffles already have oil in them so you will find that they become extra greasy and lose crisp if you put additional oil in.
Set the air fryer to 350°F/180°C and cook for 8 minutes.
