Perfectly seasoned sweet potatoes cooked in the air fryer are a french fry lover’s dream! These fries are crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, and when you add in a spicy dipping sauce, you’ve got a match made in heaven.
If you want to take your French Fry game to a whole new level, then hang with me, I’ve got what you need. These Air Fried Sweet Potato Fries are crispy, with a soft inside that makes them irresistible. There’s no mess and extra fat from deep-frying, and you can actually make a huge batch in less than 30 minutes.
What Makes These Sweet Potato Fries So Good?
- First, it’s all in the seasoning. My go-to is Dan-O’s Original Seasoning. It enhances whatever you sprinkle it on, adding that “something special” from its flavor blend. As a bonus, it’s all natural, has zero sugar and is low sodium.
- Second, air frying instead of deep-frying. These sweet potato fries are crispy, crunchy, light and tender. Just like a perfect french fry should be!
- Last, I’ve added a spicy dipping sauce that is off the chart delicious! It’s creamy with a spicy kick from Dan-O’s Spicy Seasoning and hot sauce.
What’s Needed To Make Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries
The ingredients for this recipe are super simple. Here’s what you need:
- Sweet Potatoes – choose small to medium size potatoes that are firm with very little blemishes.
- Avocado Oil – or neutral oil you may have on hand.
- Dan-O’s Original Seasoning – you can find it HERE.
- Parmesan Cheese
- Fresh Parsley
Tips For Making Fries In The Air Fryer
- Make sure to cut the sweet potatoes about the same size. This will ensure that they cook evenly.
- Season the fries really well. Sweet Potatoes are the perfect canvas for this all-natural seasoning, so don’t skimp here.
- Shake the basket of the air fryer halfway through cooking. Pull out the basket, give it a good shake and push it back in the air fryer to complete the cooking time.
- Immediately when the fries are done, take them out of the air fryer basket, sprinkle with a little more Dan-O’s Seasoning, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, fresh parsley and serve hot.
Let’s Get Dipping – How To Make The Spicy Dipping Sauce
