HOW TO MAKE SWEET POTATO CHIPS CRISPY
A few things you need to REALLY keep in mind when making air fryer sweet potato chips are soaking, drying, not overcrowding your air fryer, and very thin slices. Try using a mandoline slicer to get that perfect thin slice. You almost want to be able to see through your potato.
DO I NEED TO SOAK MY SWEET POTATOES BEFORE BAKING
This is a very important step to ensuring that your air fryer sweet potato slices come out crispy. When you soak your sweet potato rounds you are removing any starches or surface starches from the potatoes. Soaking your sweet potatoes will also make them more crispy.
HOW TO COOK SWEET POTATO ROUNDS IN AIR FRYER
Once you’ve done your soaking and drying, you will want to make sure to evenly coat each sweet potato slice with olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper. Make sure you start with a temperature of 350F for the first 10 mins and then bump the temperature to 400F for 2-4 minutes.
You will also want to make sure not to overcrowd the basket of your air fryer.
WHY ARE MY SWEET POTATO CHIPS SOGGY
This is due to too much moisture or overcrowding your basket. Meaning your sweet potato slices before cooking were not dry enough. It is very important to pat the slices dry.
I find a tea towel best, followed by a quick pat with a paper towel. Using oil will also help with excess moisture as well.
Don’t forget to give your sweet potato slices room to cook.
