My wife created an incredible air fried tater tot quite a while ago and the kids literally went mad to get their hands on them so I naturally couldn’t resist trying out this recipe with the kiddos too. Needless to say, they held the same reaction for these Air Fryer Zucchini Tots and made this dad one proud Papa (I’m not sure when this name came about for me but my boys relentlessly call me Papa). The Process of making these wonderfully delectable Air Fryer Zucchini Tots is exactly the same as you’d prepare a regular Tater Tot and if you’ve never made a Tater Tot, you need to really check the recipe out here.
I found that the only difference between using a potato or using zucchini for these amazing Air Fryer Zucchini Tots is the water content in the zucchini itself. Not a big deal my friends, just simply dry them more. I found that doing a two-step method of first using paper towel and finishing with a good cheesecloth wring out worked perfectly for me. Nice and Crispy outer with an amazingly smooth and an almost silky texture beneath is all I could have dreamed of and thank God I achieved it.

Seriously now my friends, I’m totally linking you back to my wife’s recipe.
