Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries
- 2-3 medium-sized sweet potatoes
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Optional: any other herbs or spices of your choice such as paprika, garlic powder, or cayenne pepper.
- Begin by washing and peeling your sweet potatoes. Cut them into fries that are about 1/4 inch thick.
- In a bowl, toss the sweet potato fries with olive oil, salt, pepper, and any other herbs or spices you prefer.
- Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees F.
- Once preheated, add the sweet potato fries to the air fryer in a single layer. You may need to cook them in batches, depending on the size of your air fryer.
- Cook the fries for 10-15 minutes, depending on how crispy you like them. Shake the basket or toss the fries every 5 minutes to ensure they cook evenly.
- Once they are golden brown and crispy, remove them from the air fryer and place them on a paper towel to remove any excess oil.
- Serve your sweet potato fries with your favorite dipping sauce, and enjoy!
Note: Cooking times may vary depending on the size of your sweet potato fries and your air fryer model. Be sure to check on them frequently and adjust the cooking time accordingly.
Frozen Sweet Potato Fries
To cook frozen sweet potato fries in an air fryer, start by preheating the air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the frozen sweet potato fries in the air fryer basket, making sure they are spread out in a single layer. Cook for 10-15 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through to ensure even cooking. The fries should be crispy and golden brown when done. If needed, cook for an additional 2-3 minutes for extra crispiness. Be careful not to overcrowd the basket as this will prevent the fries from cooking evenly.
