  10. Garnish optional: green onions or chopped chives


1. Prepare the Hash Brown Mixture:

  • The frozen hash browns, sharp cheddar and parmesan cheeses, all-purpose flour, melted butter, onion and garlic powders, salt, and pepper should all be combined in a big bowl. Blend well until all the components are dispersed equally.

  • Set the air fryer to 400°F. To get a crispy outside, this is a critical temperature.

4. Fill the Muffin Tin or Cups:

  • With a small amount of pressure to compress the mixture, spoon the hash brown mixture into the muffin pan or cups. Create a small well in the middle of every cup to guarantee uniform cooking.

5. Cook:

  • Put the cups or muffin tray into the air fryer basket. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the edges of the hash brown cups are crispy and golden brown. The model of your air fryer may have an impact on the cooking time.

6. Cool and Serve:

  • Before taking out the hash brown cups, carefully take out the muffin pan or cups from the air fryer and allow them to cool for a few minutes. They become easy to remove and assist set throughout this resting period.
    Serve warm, garnishing with chopped green onions or chives if preferred.

Tips for Success:

  • Thawing Hash Browns: To avoid soggy cups, make sure the hash browns are completely thawed and drained of extra moisture.
  • Customisation: To add more flavour and texture, feel free to add chopped bell peppers, diced ham, or fried bacon pieces to the mixture.
