Recipe Tips & Substitutions

  • Some air fryer models needs to be preheated. Please refer to the owner’s manual of your particular model to see if you need to preheat it before using.
  • You don’t have to peel the sweet potatoes if you don’t want to, but I prefer them peeled as they are easier to digest without the peel.
  • Try to slice your wedges into uniform sizes as much as possible so they will cook evenly. Each sweet potato should yield about 6-8 wedges.
  • Depending on the size of your air fryer basket, you may be able to double this recipe.
  • Try 1 1/2 teaspoons of ranch or taco seasoning in place of the recommended seasonings.
