How To Make These Air Fryer Frozen Sweet Potato Fries

It is important that frozen fries go from a very cold environment, such as the freezer, to a very hot one.

In fact, it is the heat shock that allows them to become super crispy.

That’s why I recommend preheating your air fryer for a few minutes at 375°F(190°C).

Place the frozen fries inside the air fryer as soon as you have taken them out of the freezer.

It is important that they do not begin to thaw.

Air Fryer Frozen Sweet Potato

Set your air fryer to 375°F(190°C) and cook the frozen fries for about 16 minutes.

Shake the basket 2-3 times during cooking.

If you want to get a good result, you should never overfill it. Overfilled baskets do not allow the hot air to circulate freely inside the appliance.

When they are ready, transfer them to a bowl and season to taste with your favorite spices.

Do I Need Coat The Air Fryer Basket With Oil?

Yes.

For crispier fries, we recommend lightly spraying the cooking basket with cooking spray oil or rubbing a teaspoon of oil using a kitchen brush .

What Type Of Dipping Sauce Pairs Well With Sweet Potato Fries?

Tip For Air Fryer Frozen Sweet Potato Fries

  • Do not overcrowd the basket.
  • Spray a light amount of olive oil cooking spray in the basket before adding the frozen chips.

Adjust the cooking time according to the thickness of the chips.

  • I recommend seasoning the fries only at the end of cooking, you can use pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, or chopped parsley in addition to the classic salt.

The spices should be inserted into the basket at the end of cooking, just shake and let it go for just one more minute.

Preheat the air fryer to ensure even cooking.

Preheating circulates very hot air in the fryer, so once the food is inserted, it will immediately begin to cook, the moisture will be removed from the surface of the food to give it that finish as in oil frying and that crispness to the palate.
