Air Fryer Frozen Sweet Potato Fries

Whilst the Dom & Sofia adore white potatoes, me and Jorge are team sweet potato and love having some sweet potato fries in the air fryer.

Back in 2019 I was asked by one of our readers if they could cook frozen sweet potato fries in the air fryer, we of course tried them immediately and now this frozen sweet potato fries air fryer recipe has become our go to.

Though of course, since 2019, its all been about practice makes perfect and making frozen sweet potato fries even better.

One of the biggest changes has been swapping some cheap frozen fries for McCain. McCain sweet potato fries in the air fryer are even better, and you just know when you are eating McCain produce compared to other brands.

Today, I wanted to show you our updated air fried sweet potato fries, so that you can rinse and repeat at home with your air fryer.

Can Frozen Sweet Potato Fries Be Air Fried?

Yes, frozen sweet potato fries can be air fried, and you will love them. They have a lovely crispy texture, if cooked at the right time and temp and they are perfect for serving with your lunch or dinner.

Can Frozen Sweet Potatoes Be Air Fried?

Yes, any frozen sweet potatoes can be air fried and its not limited to cooking frozen sweet potato fries in air fryer.

In fact, we love air fryer frozen sweet potato cubes too and it makes a brilliant side dish for dinner too. Or just something to tuck into with a dipping sauce.

Why Are My Frozen Sweet Potato Fries Soggy In The Air Fryer?

The reason your frozen air fryer sweet potato fries are soggy, is because they have not been cooked for long enough and need a spray of olive oil to make them crispier.

The brand of frozen fries we recommend you use are McCain and we have also had great success with Lidl sweet potato fries.

Cosori Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries

We also used our Cosori air fryer basket for our sweet potato fries, though of course, you can use any air fryer.

Though note, air fryer frozen fries work much better with a basket style air fryer for getting the crisp on them compared to an air fryer oven.

Frozen Sweet Potato Fries Air Fryer Ingredients

Frozen Sweet Potato Fries Air Fryer Ingredients

Fries – We used one bag of McCain frozen sweet potato fries. Though you can make a smaller portion or swap for another frozen foods brand.

Oil – To prevent the sweet potato fries from being soggy, we recommend an olive oil spray. You don’t need a lot just enough to spray the tops of them.

Can You Recommend An Air Fryer?

I often get asked which air fryers I recommend and which one I use. In 95% of our air fryer recipes, we use either the Philips Air Fryer XL or the Cosori XL because they are the best ones, we have found out of many air fryers we have tried over the years. You can click on the links above and read up on them.

But if you would rather have a dual air fryer we recommend this Ninja Dual (make sure you order the right one as not all are good) or the Philips Dual.

How To Air Fry Frozen Sweet Potato Fries?

air-fryer-frozen-sweet-potato-fries-step-by-step
  • Remove. To air fry frozen sweet potato fries start by removing the sweet potatoes from the bag and spreading out in the air fryer basket.  
  • Precook. Start with what I call a precook which gets the sweet potatoes cooked and almost done.
  • Spray. Then spray the fries with extra virgin olive oil.
  • Cook. Next air fry the sweet potato fries for a further 5 minutes to make them crispy.

How Long To Air Fry Frozen Sweet Potato Fries?

We recommend for frozen sweet potato fries (or what us Brits call frozen sweet potato chips) a cook time of 17 minutes. This will cook the chips, and then the remaining cook time will make them crispy.

If you like your fries crispier or have a slower air fryer, then you can add on a few extra minutes until they are done to how you like them.

What Temperature To Air Fry Frozen Sweet Potato Fries?

To cook frozen sweet potato fries in the air fryer we recommend a temperature of 180c/360f for cooking them and then 200c/400f for making the sweet potatoes nice and crispy.

    I was looking through the freezer at my local supermarket and found these near the white potato french fries, did not honestly know that they were a thing. So i gave them a try following your instructions and they turned out great. Thanks 🙂

    Never thought of air frying frozen sweet potatoes. Bought some last week and used your recipe last night and they were amazing. Can’t believe the drop in calories and how crispy they were.
