One of my all time favorite side dishes has to be Crispy Crowns. I think we an all agree that they're better than tater tots. The flat disc shape gives you a larger surface area which means extra crispiness, and the air fryer cooking method gives the best results in my opinion.
Why You'll Love this Recipe:
- It's a great quick snack
- It's as easy air fryer recipe
- It's a great side for a tasty dinner
- Just as good as frozen french fries
PRO TIP: The secret to air frying is to not use too much extra oil. Just a spray of Olive Oil Spray, Avocado Oil Spray or regular cooking spray will do.
- Crispy Crowns
- Garlic powder
- Chili Powder
How to Make Seasoned Crispy Crowns in the Air Fryer
Tips and Tricks
- There is no cooking time on the bag for the Air Fryer so check on the tater puffs frequently to make sure they're cooking okay. You want a total cook time of about 10-12 minutes total.
- You can make crispy tater tots with this same recipe - just up the cooking time by 2-3 minutes for the thicker potato rounds.
- Make sure to sprinkle the seasoning on the crowns while they're still really hot - if they start to cool down, the seasoning wont stick as well.
- Air Fryer temperatures vary, so check your crispy crowns at least once during the cooking process.
Why the Air Fryer Method is Better Than a Conventional Oven or Deep Fryer:
- You don't have to heat up the oven and wait for it to pre-heat
- You don't have to dirty a baking sheet
- You don't have to use lots of oil
Use my seasoning mix as a starting point. Some other things you could add or substitute are: onion powder, cayenne pepper, Old Bay Seasoning, Taco Seasoning, Za'atar. Use your favorite seasonings, and switch it up when you want to!
I usually just dip mine in ketchup, but you could use barbecue sauce, ranch dressing, or mayonnaise. You could mix together sour cream and salsa, and use that as a dip.
If you have a larger air fryer, or a toaster oven style air fryer, you could probably make the whole bag at once. For me, I have a smaller basket-style air fryer, so the most I could do at once is half a bag, which is more than enough for two people.
