How to make sweet potato fries in air fryer

 Here is the instruction of how to make perfect potato slices:

Step1. Peel you sweet potato. You can also leave the skin on if you like its texture

Step2. Cut in preferred sized slices or wedges. Just make sure that they are all about the same size

Step3. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees. Always preheat your air fryer for best results

Step4. In a medium size mixing bowl mix potatoes with olive oil and spices. I like to use pink salt and fresh ground pepper only

Step5. Cook in batches. Dont overfill the basket, place fries in one layer and cook in 2-3 batches ( for the potato pictured above, i had to make two batches)

To ensure the desired crispiness, serve immediately!

How to cook sweet potato fries or wedges from frozen?

Usually i just double the cooking time. So for this recipe it will be 16 minutes instead of 8 minutes. Shake them along the way and make sure to look closely, because cooking time vary depending on the size of your slices.

My new Cuisinart air fryer did not make the sweet potatoes crispy. They were eatable, but I don't think I would make them again.

I wouldn’t be without my air fryer. If it quit on me I’d be out buying another one the same day! My potato fries turn out perfect! I hope you can get one soon, as I don’t believe you’ll be disappointed.
