Air Fryer Sweet Potato Slices

You probably want to know what the story is behind these air fryer sweet potato slices. After all, us Milner’s have been air frying for a decade and you probably want to know when we started this air fryer trend.

Well, it was very much like our air fryer sweet potato cubes. A great use out of sweet potatoes that were a bad shape for fries and that would suit what we were having for dinner.

I would slice sweet potatoes thin like I would when using white potatoes and add them as a top layer on a casserole. Such as our slow cooker Lancashire hotpot. Or even better, as an alternative to aubergine in a moussaka.

But they were also the sweet potato of all uses and would be loaded up onto the dinner table for us all to share.

Sweet Potato Slices In Air Fryer

The biggest benefit of sweet potato slices in air fryer (like I have touched on above) is that they can be used with ugly shaped sweet potatoes.

When sweet potatoes are going out of season and you are craving sweet potatoes but can’t get any good ones, then cook air fryer sweet potato slices.

You can even cook them with the skin on. Just make sure your sweet potatoes are cleaned beforehand.

Then chop them up into sweet potato slices and air fry.

Paleo Sweet Potato Bread Buns

Paleo Sweet Potato Burger Buns In The Air Fryer

It would be wrong when typing this, not to mention our paleo sweet potato bread buns. Because in a nutshell they are air fryer potato slices, just a much thicker version. Then you can cook them in the toaster or in the air fryer and they replace bread buns in low carb cooking.

To me they sum up just how amazing sweet potato slices are in the air fryer and how they are one of the best healthy air fryer hacks.

Air Fryer Sweet Potato Chips

While making paleo buns with sweet potato slices is stepping it up and making them bigger, you can also go thin to make air fryer sweet potato chips.

Using a potato slicer is best and then make your sweet potatoes as thin as possible. Then keep the skin on as it will help with the crisp and cook like you would with our air fryer slices.

You can then serve your air fryer sweet potato chips with your favourite dip and it will be ideal for girls night in, date night or just chilling while watching Netflix.

Or even better, if you are following the Whole30 it is a fantastic alternative to cheap processed foods.

Notes

Seasonings. You can mix and match your seasonings depending on what you are serving with your sweet potato slices. For example, rosemary goes very well with them, especially when served with our air fryer lamb chops.
Shake. I recommend you shake the sweet potatoes when you change the cooking temperature. This is because the sweet potato slices can stick together, and it will stop the sweet potato slices from getting crispy.
