An air fryer is similar to convection oven. It allows air to circulate while cooking which produces the absolute crispiest sweet potato fries you have ever tasted.

Why cook frozen fries in the air fryer

Cooking frozen fries in the air fryer is the best cooking method! Once you try the air fryer, you’re never going to want to use the oven again.

The air fryer is much faster and more evenly cooks. Plus, there’s less clean up—no need for a baking tray or the need for a liner like parchment paper or a silicone mat.

We use our air fryer often, it’s healthier than deep frying and you don’t even need to use oil. (We prefer to cook oil-free whenever possible). Less empty calories means you can enjoy larger serving sizes without guilt, right? That’s what I tell myself!

You’re going to love cooking frozen fries in the air fryer! They’re:

  • perfectly crispy
  • healthier than deep frying

INSTRUCTIONS

Sweet potato waffle fries and tater tots will cook differently so make sure you’re using regular straight cut sweet potato fries.

Start by pre-heating your air fryer.

When the air fryer is heated, add your sweet potatoes fries to the basket or tray and spread out evenly.If you have a smaller air fryer, you may need to cook in two batches.

Cook the sweet potato fries for about 8 minutes, then shake the basket to redistribute the fries and continue cooking for another 8 minutes.

Check on them a few minutes before they’re done to see if they’re getting close or if they’ll need more time. If you prefer extra crispy fries, leave them in for an extra minute or two.
