How to make sweet potato fries in the air fryer
Lots of people question how long to cook sweet potato fries in the air fryer? About 15 minutes! You peel and slice up a sweet potato into fries. Then toss the fries in olive oil and coarse sea salt. If you like a little spice – toss in some cayenne. Then air fryer for 16 minutes and toss half way through. That’s all there is to it!
Homemade sweet potato fries in an air fryer are a great side dish for any meal – I have a meatloaf recipe coming up that is a great pairing. I like to dip my sweet potato fries in maple syrup – it’s simple and brings out the sweetness in the potato. Plus sweet and salty is always great!
