Easy Ingredients

Sweet potatoes – Any variety will work for this recipe. Beauregard and Jewel sweet potatoes are a couple of the most common, with good flavor, and dense, creamy flesh. Look for long, straight potatoes without any dark spots to create the best wedges.

Cheese – Use a dry cheese like Parmesan or Romano so you can grate them finely so they will easily adhere.

Seasoning & Variations – Try different seasoning mixes to give your sweet potato wedges your own signature! Try a DIY taco, fajita, or Southwest spice blend for a bit of heat, or opt for a sweeter fry and coat with cinnamon and brown sugar!

How to Make Air Fryer Sweet Potato Wedges

Once sweet potato wedges are prepped, they are ready to eat in just 10 minutes!

  1. Peel and slice wedges, then soak in a bowl of cold water for 15 minutes to remove the starch.
  2. While the air fryer is preheating, pat wedges dry and toss with oil.
  3. Press the cheese and seasoning mixture onto the wedges.
  4. Place in one layer in the Ninja (or other brand) air fryer basket and cook (per the recipe below) until crispy and tender on the inside.

Pro Tips and Tricks

  • Sweet potato wedges are best when served fresh and hot!
  • Soaking in water will remove the sticky starch and make for crispier wedges. Be sure to pat dry with paper towels before seasoning!
  • Preheat the air fryer so that the initial heat blast will sear the outer edges.
  • Cut wedges into uniform thicknesses so they will cook evenly. Air fry in single layers and don’t crowd the basket. You might have to cook in batches.
  • To re-crisp leftover sweet potato wedges, preheat your Ninja or other brand air fryer to 350°F and cook for 5 minutes.

Air Fryer Sweet Potato Wedges

These parmesan crusted air fryer sweet potatoes are crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Soak Time 15 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 4 servings



  • 2 small sweet potatoes scrubbed and cut into wedges
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese grated*
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper


  • Preheat the air fryer to 400°F.
  • Slice potatoes into wedges and soak for 15-30 minutes in cold water.**
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  • Drain the wedges and pat them dry with a paper towel. Toss with olive oil and press into the parmesan cheese mixture making sure all the potatoes are evenly coated.
  • Place the wedges in the air fryer basket and cook for 11-12 minutes or until golden brown and tender.


*Grated parmesan cheese will stick better to the sweet potatoes. However, if using shredded cheese, place it in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin to make it finer.
**Soaking draws out excess starch allowing the sweet potatoes to fry up crispy.

    Thank you for this recipe/method! My husband said they are the best sweet potato fries we’ve made in the air fryer (I agree). They were crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. Perfect!
