Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries

This is one of the simplest recipes for air fryer sweet potato fries! These fries are incredibly easy and make the perfect side dish for grilled burgers and steak or served all by themselves. And, these sweet potato fries are served with an incredible garlic-herb dipping sauce. What’s can be better? Well, using an air fryer versus the oven or a deep fryer means that these sweet potato fries require less oil. Definitely a plus in my book. This is my all time favorite side dish, and after you try this recipe, I hope it will be yours too! Keep in mind that you will need to cook these fries in 2-3 batches.

Picking the right sweet potato:

For a pop of color and a nice sweet bite, I recommend using either the garnet or jewel sweet potato variety. They have orange flesh that will produce the most vibrant sweet potato fries.
