Ingredients for Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries

Let’s gather the goods. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Sweet potatoes: A couple of medium-sized sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into fries
  • Olive oil: A tablespoon or so to get that crispy goodness
  • Seasonings: Salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika for a flavor boost

Tips for Perfect Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries

  • Cut ‘em evenly: Try to cut your sweet potatoes into even-sized fries so they cook evenly. Nobody wants some fries burnt while others are undercooked.
  • Don’t crowd the basket: Give your fries some breathing room. A crowded air fryer basket means soggy fries—no thank you!
  • Shake halfway: Give the basket a good shake halfway through cooking to make sure all sides get that lovely crispiness.

Variations and Substitutions

No garlic powder? No probs! Use onion powder or skip it altogether.

Prefer them sweet? Sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon and sugar.

Like it spicy? Toss in some cayenne pepper or a drizzle of hot sauce before cooking.
