Ingredients List

  • 1 package of Publix Tater Bites French-Fried Potatoes

  • Cooking spray (optional for extra crispiness)

  • Salt, to taste

  • Your choice of dipping sauces (ketchup, ranch, or spicy mayo)

Step by Step Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (204°C) for about 3-5 minutes, getting it ready for optimal crisping.

  2. Prepare the Tater Bites: If desired, lightly spray the tater bites with cooking spray to enhance their crispiness. This step is optional, as the tater bites will crisp up nicely in the air fryer without additional oil.

  3. Cook: Arrange the tater bites in a single layer in the air fryer basket, ensuring they don't overlap to allow for even cooking. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook them in batches. Air fry for 10-15 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through the cooking time, until the tater bites are golden brown and crispy.

  4. Season and Serve: Lightly salt the tater bites fresh out of the air fryer and serve with your choice of dipping sauces.
