There are many advantages to baking sweet potatoes in an air fryer: It’s quicker than an oven (no preheating!) and the circulating hot air yields a perfectly crisp exterior and silky, creamy interior. We topped each potato simply with a pat of butter and some chopped fresh chives, but you can add any of your favorite toppings (mini marshmallows included).



Special equipment:
a 6-quart air fryer
  1. Toss the sweet potatoes with the oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a medium bowl until evenly coated.
  2. Place the potatoes in the basket of a 6-quart air fryer. Cook at 400 degrees F until crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, flipping halfway through, 35 to 40 minutes.
  3. Cut lengthwise along the top of each potato, being careful of the hot steam, then fluff the inside with a fork and season with a pinch of salt. Top with a pat of butter and chopped fresh chives.
