Tips and Tricks

  • Adjust the cooking time based on the thickness and desired crispness of the sweet potato fries.
  • These sweet potato fries are best enjoyed immediately after cooking for optimal crispiness.
  • Feel free to customize the seasoning or spices according to your taste preferences. Add other spices like garlic powder, onion powder, or chili powder for extra flavor. You could also try them with your favorite seasoning blend.
  • If you don’t yet have an air fryer, you can get similar results from this easy recipe by baking these healthy fries on a sheet pan in the oven. Adjust the baking time accordingly.
  • While the best way to enjoy these sweet potato fries is to eat them immediately, leftover fries can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container.

How to Get the Best Results from Your Air Fryer

  • It’s important to preheat the air fryer to ensure even and consistent cooking.
  • Make sure your food is in a single layer, being careful not to overcrowd the basket, as this may lead to uneven cooking. Cook in batches if needed to allow for adequate circulation of hot air.
  • Save on cleanup by lining your air fryer basket with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  • Clean your air fryer! I recommend washing by hand, but check your manual.

FAQ

  • Everyone is talking about air frying. How exactly does an air fryer work? An air fryer cooks food quickly by radiating heat into the chamber that is then circulated through convection. This allows for food to be fried without the use of oils.
  • Could I substitute frozen sweet potato fries for fresh in this recipe? Yes, but they will cook differently so be sure to watch the cook time and temperature.

This air fryer recipe is a great starting point for you. Once you know how to make these homemade sweet potato fries, try switching it up to make other kinds of veggie fries, like these asparagus fries. Adjust the seasonings. Try breading your fries. There are so many options to explore.
