  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Additional salt (optional)


  1. Preheat air fryer to 380 degrees F for a cook time of 14 minutes.
  2. Peel or wash the sweet potato and cut into 1/2 inch thick fries.
  3. Toss the fries with olive oil, salt, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder until thoroughly coated.
  4. Add the sweet potatoes to the preheated air fryer basket.
  5. Every 5 minutes or so, remove the basket and shake it. Continue cooking until the fries have golden spots all over them and the edges are starting to turn a deep brown.
