Frozen Sweet Potato Fries in Air Fryer

Cooking sweet potato fries in an air fryer is a breeze, especially when using pre-fried frozen sweet potatoes.

Essential Tip

The key to perfectly cooked fries is to shake the basket at least once during the cooking process. For best results, shake the basket every 2-3 minutes during the latter half of the cooking time. This ensures that each fry is evenly cooked, allowing you to make larger batches successfully. Many air fryer models will prompt you to shake the fries—don’t ignore this!

Cooking Time and Temperature

Generally, sweet potato fries take about 13 minutes to cook in an air fryer, but this can vary depending on the model and how crispy you prefer your fries. Start with the recommended time and adjust as needed. If your fries are thicker or you’ve loaded more into the basket, simply cook them a bit longer after checking. The optimal temperature is 385 degrees Fahrenheit (195 degrees Celsius).

Quantity Considerations

The amount of sweet potato fries you can cook at once depends on your air fryer’s basket size. Most baskets can hold up to 400 grams or 8 pounds of fries comfortably, and you may be able to cook more depending on your model. It’s a good idea to experiment to see what works best with your specific air fryer.

By following these tips, you can enjoy perfectly crispy sweet potato fries anytime, straight from your air fryer.
