This Christmas, I received an air fryer. I’m not going to lie, I asked for it. I wanted to see what all the hype was about. When I opened up the box, I was pretty frightened by the size of it. It was huge! I had no idea how I was going to cram it in a cabinet in my kitchen. Turns out I didn’t need to cram it inside a cabinet, after all. Know why? Because I love it so much it sits right out on my counter top!


This air fryer is the bomb-diggity. Of all the crazy appliances I’ve purchased over the years, this one has a permanent spot next to the toaster. Truth be told, if I had to pick between the air fryer and the toaster, I’d chose the air fryer…hands down! It does so much more than I ever thought. I have rarely put the oven on since Christmas. 


These sweet potatoes were the first thing I made with the air fryer. Well, that’s not true. They were the first thing “from scratch” that I made. We threw in some frozen mozzarella sticks and pizza logs right away, to see if it really acts like a deep fryer. You know how frozen mozzarella sticks turn out in the oven…limp, right? Well, not with the air fryer. They were very crispy, and that’s when I started wondering what else I could make in it. Now I use it to bake, roast, fry and re-heat. Re-heated pizza is amazing in the air fryer. Really!


My air fryer is the OMORC Air Fryer XL. The basket is large enough to hold everything I have tried so far. If I needed to do a second basket of something, it wouldn’t be an issue because of the shortened cooking times.

If you don’t have an air fryer, I would suggest placing them in a shallow pan in a single layer, and baking at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.


I love to use a roasted vegetable blend instead of the individual spices when I make these. If you don’t have the blend, simply make your own with the ingredients listed in the recipe. I am, however, all about making things easier and quicker, so the blend works for me….plus, it’s delicious and I use it on a lot of my roasted vegetables. It makes the sweet potatoes so flavorful!


My husband is not a sweet potatoes fan, but he enjoys this recipe very much. I hope you will enjoy them also. Please leave me a comment to let me know!
