Tips & Tricks to Nail the Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries Recipe

Ready to make Air Fryer sweet potato fries? Here are some more tips and tricks you might want to take note of.

  • Make sure you cut the potato fries evenly. The idea is to get them all to crisp up at the same time.
  • Make sure you choose an oil that has a high smoke point. If you don’t want to use oil to coat the fries, you can just use some cooking spray instead.
  • Choose evenly size sweet potatoes and make sure they’re perfectly seasoned before you layer them in the fryer basket.
  • You can try lots of different flavor variations to these Air Fryer sweet potato fries. Garlic powder, kosher salt, black pepper, brown sugar, cayenne pepper and smoked paprika are all great seasoning choices to consider.
  • To make sure all the sweet potato fries are seasoned well, toss them in some olive oil and the spices of your choice in a large mixing bowl.
  • You can also choose to soak sweet potatoes to get rid of the excess starch, and then use them for the recipe.
  • You can also cook frozen sweet potatoes in the same way, and make frozen sweet potato fries in minutes!

Why Are My Sweet Potato Fries Soggy?

To get the perfect crispy sweet potato fries, you’ll need to make sure you cut them thinly- ideally anywhere between 1/4-1/2 inch in thickness.

Also avoid overcrowding the Air Fryer basket with too many fries- arrange them in a single layer, and flipping halfway through the cooking time.

How Do I Store the Leftover Sweet Potato Fries?

Your leftover sweet potato fries can be stored in an airtight container and refrigerated for 2-3 days.

I would recommend reheating them in the Air Fryer to get them crispy.

How Do I Serve the Sweet Potato Fries?

These air fryer fries can be served with your favorite dipping sauce and enjoyed as a healthy snack.

You can also team them up with some Ranch dressing or sour cream if you want to.
