Air-Fryer Sweet Potato Fries Tips
Are fries healthy when cooked in an air fryer?
Fries that are air-fried, both sweet potato and those made from regular potatoes, are healthier than their deep-fried counterparts. That’s because instead of using quarts of oil in a deep fryer, you can use just a small amount, or none at all, in an air fryer. Plus, you'll still achieve beautifully crispy fries.

How do I make these sweet potato fries if I don’t have an air fryer?
If you don’t have an air fryer, you can make these fries in an oven
. Preheat oven to 425° F. Combine all ingredients; toss to coat. Spread fries in a single layer on two baking sheets. Bake until crisp, 35-40 minutes. Serve immediately.
What goes well with sweet potato fries?
The first thing that probably comes to mind is the classic burger
and fries combo. There’s no beating that, but don’t discount other pub and restaurant fare such as fried fish
, chicken tenders
and hot, hearty sandwiches
of all kinds. If you’re trying to eat healthier, pair sweet potato fries with grilled chicken
, sheet pan suppers
and other quick and healthy entrees. Research contributed by Amy Glander, Taste of Home Book Editor
