Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some FAQs about this air fryer sweet potato wedges recipe – if you can’t find the answer to your question here or in the post above, please comment and I’ll try answer!

Help! My air fryer sweet potato wedges didn’t go crispy

If your air fryer sweet potato wedges didn’t crisp up, it’s likely they were too crowded in the air fryer. Cooking too many wedges in one go will mean they retain their moisture and don’t crisp up. Try cooking them in batches.

Do I need oil for these air fryer sweet potato wedges?

It’s a common misconception that you don’t need oil when using an air fryer. You do need some oil to stop the wedges sticking and help them crisp up, but a little goes a very long way.

Are sweet potato wedges usually gluten free?

Unfortunately a lot of frozen sweet potato wedges are coated with wheat flour to help them crisp up. I’ve developed this air fryer wedges recipe without any flour at all so they are naturally gluten free. Not to mention cheaper and easier too!

Can you reheat sweet potato wedges?

Any leftover sweet potato wedges can be kept in the fridge for a day or two once cooked. You can reheat them in the air fryer before eating but I think they are much better to make fresh each time.
