Sweet potato wedges in the air fryer are extra delicious. Take my word for it.

We really love cooking sweet potatoes anyway (here are some awesome ways to use sweet potatoes), but this air fryer method is so quick and easy, it may be my new go-to.

The air fryer has become quite the convenient little appliance in our house. The texture is fantastic and the cleanup is minimal.

There are so many things you can make, like these air fryer bison burgers, air fryer tempeh, air fryer parsnips or air fryer turkey burgers.

You can even make things from frozen, like these air fryer frozen green beans, which comes in handy when you forget to prepare a veggie or something.

My four-year-old and husband both loved these. In fact, my husband proclaimed that these were his favorite air fryer recipe yet, and my four-year-old said, “Mom, these are actually really really good!”

The air fryer wedges have a different texture than if you were to bake sweet potato wedges. Plus, you have more control of the amount of oil you’re using, which is less overall.

Air Fryer Sweet Potato Wedges Ingredients

Here’s the short list of ingredients you need for these air fryer sweet potato wedges.

  • 2-3 medium sweet potatoes
  • avocado oil or olive oil

I made the super easy dipping sauce for these sweet potato wedges by mixing equal amounts of mayo and ketchip, a personal favorite of mine.


AIR FRYER ESSENTIALS – I love to keep some go-to’s on hand for my air fryer recipes. Here’s what I recommend using:

Fast Instant Read Thermometer – You’ll use this more than you know! It works for meat on the grill or stove or oven, too. It’s super fast and the large screen is easy to read.

Reusable Air Fryer Liners – I love these for easy cleaning! Plus, they’re silicone and come with magnetic cooking times, which is so helpful.

How to Make Air Fried Sweet Potato Wedges

You’ll start by preheating your air fryer to 380 deg. Farenheit.

While it’s preheating, cut your sweet potatoes. I prefer to cut them into a wide wedge shape and them put them in a bowl.

Add your oil and spices into the mixing bowl, mixing it all around.

Then, transfer your wedges to the air fryer basket. I would recommend doing it in 2-3 batches, so the sweet potatoes aren’t smothering over each other.

You don’t want them to be touching too closely – give them space to breathe.

Let them cook for 16-17 minutes, flipping halfway.

FAQ

Mine weren’t crispy enough. What should I change?

Each air fryer may be a little different in terms of timing, however I would try the upper range, 16-17 minutes, if you would like crispier wedges. Also, make sure they aren’t overlapping or touching each other too closely when cooking.

Can I make crispy sweet potato fries in the air fryer?

Yes, you would do everything similarly. Rather than cutting the sweet potatoes into a wider, wedge shape, cut them into thinner fry shapes. Start with the lower end of the cooking time and increase as necessary until you reach the desired crispness for crispy air fried sweet potato fries.

Can you bake these in the oven?

Yes, you certainly can! Bake at 400-425 for 20-30 minutes, or until your desired crispness. Make sure to flip halfway when cooking.

How to store sweet potato wedges made in the air fryer

To store these wedges, let them cool completely and store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. To reheat, place back in the air fryer at 380 for up to 10 minutes, or reheat in the oven.
