Spiced Sweet Potato Fries are easy to cook in the air fryer. Made with fresh sweet potatoes, olive oil, a little ground cinnamon and a bit of cayenne pepper. Sprinkled with a little salt at the end, these slightly spicy fries are a tasty addition to backyard burgers and barbecue.
There are many brands to choose from but they all cook in less time than the oven and with a fraction of the oil than frying.
Yes, air fryers can warm up frozen french fries and chicken nuggets but they can do so much more.
According to Delish.com they can bake cinnamon rolls, fried pickles, bourbon burger and much more. You don't have to look further than your friend's Pinterest board to find a few more air fryer recipes because it was one of the hottest selling kitchen appliances this past shopping season.
Not all air fryers are the same. If you're wondering which air fryer is best for you, Reviews.com has done the research for you. Check out the reviews before you buy one.
Can I bake these sweet potato fries?
If you don't have an air fryer but still want to make these fries without deep frying them, bake them at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, turn them over with tongs, then bake another 10 to 15 minutes or until tender and lightly browned.
