Step-by-Step Crux Air Fryer Hash Browns Recipe!

Air Fryer Hash Browns Recipe

Now that you’re ready to say goodbye to greasy, time-consuming hash browns, it’s time to get your hands on the simple ingredients and easy steps to air fryer magic.

2 large potatoes (russet or Yukon Gold work well)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Optional: additional seasonings like garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, or cayenne pepper


  1. Grate the potatoes: Wash and peel your potatoes (optional for Yukon Gold). Shred them using the coarse side of a box grater or the pulse function of a food processor.
  2. Squeeze out the excess moisture: This is crucial for achieving crispy hash browns. Transfer the grated potatoes to a clean cheesecloth or kitchen towel and wring out as much liquid as possible.
  3. Season and Toss: In a large bowl, combine the grated potatoes with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Add any additional seasonings you desire. Toss to coat evenly.
  4. Preheat your Crux Air Fryer: Set the temperature to 400°F (200°C). Lightly spray the basket with non-stick cooking spray for extra crispness (optional).
  5. Air Fry Time!: Spread the seasoned potato mixture evenly in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Avoid overcrowding for optimal airflow and crispy results.
  6. Cook to Golden Perfection: Air fry for 10-12 minutes, then carefully flip the hash browns using a spatula. Continue air frying for another 5-7 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  7. Enjoy!: Serve your delicious Crux Air Fryer hash browns immediately. Enjoy them on their own, topped with your favorite breakfast toppings like cheese, sour cream, salsa, or avocado, or alongside eggs, bacon, and other breakfast delights.

  • Adjust cooking time: Cooking time may vary slightly depending on the thickness of your potato shreds and the power of your air fryer. Keep an eye on them and cook until desired crispness is achieved.
  • Experiment with flavors: Get creative with your seasonings! Try adding chopped herbs like parsley or chives, a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese, or a dash of your favorite hot sauce.
  • Leftovers? No problem! Store leftover hash browns in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat them in the air fryer for a quick and delicious snack or breakfast the next day.
