Talk about an easy side dish! In less than 20 minutes and only a few ingredients, you can enjoy these delicious Air Fryer Sweet potatoes!
Getting dinner on the table every night can be a struggle when you don’t have a ton of time to spend in the kitchen. Feeding your family a health full meal with natural ingredients doesn’t have to be difficult or take a long time. My new favorite kitchen tool is my Air Fryer and for good reason! I made these delicious Air Fryer Sweet Potatoes in about 15 minutes start to finish!
What is an Air Fryer?
An Air Fryer is a countertop convection oven appliance of sorts. It allows you to cook and crisp items quickly without heating up the entire house.
I am against buying a ton of extra appliances. I did find my air fryer on sale, and I thought it was worth a shot. Talk about a pleasant surprise! This has actually sat on my kitchen counter since I purchased it. It makes the best french fries, heats up chicken nuggets, and so much more! My favorite part is that I don’t’ have to heat up the house with the oven when we want something. The added bonus is you get a fried food texture without the extra oil or calories!
How To Make Air Fryer Sweet Potatoes
This side dish is extremely simple to make. Just peel and dice your sweet potatoes. Toss them in a bowl with a tablespoon of olive oil, and a small bit of salt and pepper. Add the potatoes to your air fryer basket and cook for about 10 minutes. That is it!
Get creative. Salt and Pepper aren’t the only seasonings that are good on these sweet potatoes. You can season them however you please! My favorite is this Homemade Cajun Seasoning. Sounds crazy, but it is DELICIOUS on sweet potatoes.
Get ready for the week ahead and make a couple of batches of these Air Fryer Sweet Potatoes. These are perfect to add to meal prep containers, or just reheat and eat as needed.
