👩🏻‍🍳Chef’s Tips

  • Preheating the air fryer is important because it helps the sweet potatoes cook evenly throughout.
  • Make sure to toss or flip the sweet potatoes halfway through cooking to ensure they cook evenly on all sides.
  • For extra crispy air fryer frozen sweet potato cubes, try tossing and spraying the sweet potatoes halfway with cooking oil.
  • Make sure the sweet potatoes are in a single layer in the air fryer basket to prevent them from steaming instead of air frying.
  • The cooking time and temperature highly depends on your individual air fryer and how big your sweet potato cubes are. Start with a time and temperature of 15 minutes at 400F and adjust from there.
