I’m pretty obsessed with sweet potatoes – but baking them takes so long! Not anymore! Use your air fryer and your “baked” sweet potato is done in 25 minutes!!
That’s the best thing about the air fryer is that it basically cuts cooking time in half for nearly everything! This baked sweet potato is light and fluffy and perfect!
Can you air fry a sweet potato?
Heck yeah!!! You’ll never use the oven again!!! It’s so easy! All you have to do is rub the outside of the potato with a little olive oil, poke it a few times with a paring knife and pop it in the air fryer! The cook time for an air fryer sweet potato is 25 minutes at 400 degrees and you’re done! I did this with a medium sized sweet potato – if you’re doing two or a larger one – it might take a little longer, if you’re doing one small one – then a little less time.
My favorite toppings for a sweet potato are the same as for my favorite air fryer Acorn Squash recipe – Butter and Brown Sugar! If you have a tub of brown sugar – you need to have a Brown Sugar Saver – they’re cheap and they keep your brown sugar from hardening up!
My air fryer gets a work-out for sure! I love cooking all sorts of vegetables in it! I even made a video for making an air fryer baked potato. If you like sweet potatoes – you’ve got to try the sweet potato fries in the air fryer! But if you want crunch – maybe some air fryer fried pickles are your choice!
