Tips & Suggestions
Like I always say, each air fryer is different. Typically, the sweet potatoes are ready when they turn golden brown on the outside. Yours may take a few minutes extra too. So, have a check on the sweet potatoes and cook accordingly.
Make sure the sweet potato cubes are even in shape. This helps in a uniform cooking process.
Adjust seasonings according to your preference.
You can leave the sweet potato skin on or peel it off. If you plan to cook them with the skin on, make sure you wash the sweet potatoes thoroughly.
Make sure you cover the air fryer basket with a single layer of sweet potatoes. If the quantity is more, you can cook in batches.
Air Fryer Sweet Potatoes taste the best when served right after cooking. They may start losing the crispy texture as time goes ones.
