👩🏻‍🍳Tips For Cooking Air Fryer Frozen Sweet Potato Fries

  • Preheating is important! We’ve found that preheating beforehand makes a difference to air fry alexia sweet potato fries. It allows the air fryer basket to get hot so that the food will defrost and cook in a timely manner. 
  • If your air fryer doesn’t have a preheat function, that’s okay! Just turn it to the 400F setting and wait for 3-5 minutes before adding in the frozen sweet potato fries. 
  • Place the frozen fries in a single layer. Whether you are air frying alexia waffle fries or regular fries, placing them in a single layer will allow the dry heat to circulate around each fry and cook evenly making crispy sweet potato fries. If your air fryer basket is too small, you may need to cook in batches. 
  • Cooking times may vary depending on your air fryer brand and model as well as the type of frozen french fry you’re cooking. In our experience, air fryer sweet potato fries or waffle fries usually cook in about 10-12 minutes. Regular french fries may take a minute or two less and thicker wedges will take a minute or two more. When in doubt, it’s always better to cook for less time and then add more if needed. 
  • For extra crispy air fryer frozen sweet potato fries, you can use a light coating of oil spray. We love using avocado oil spray, olive oil,  or any of the best oils for air fryers
  • Other Alexia fries: This same method will work with Alexia house cut fries, sweet potato waffle fries, regular waffle fries, and other types of french fries. Just be sure to adjust the cooking time as needed for different sizes and shapes.
