Air Fryer Sweet Potato Fries with Spicy Pineapple Dipping Sauce

0

These air fryer sweet potato fries are bound to become a dinner regular at your home. Of course, you can roast them in the oven if you don’t have an air fryer. They’ll be equally delicious. Though we think an air fryer is a little more fun! And they do help to ensure a more even cook. If you bake them in the oven, watch carefully. Sliced sweet potatoes are a bit like nuts – they can go from perfectly toasted to burned in an instant. Trust me – I’ve charred my share of sweet potato fries.

These sweet pommes frites are a feature recipe from Dole’s most recent partnership with Disney. They’ve created several French-influenced, family-friendly dishes with inspiration from the Pixar film, Ratatouille.

Where French fries are actually from is up for debate. The French, Dutch, and even Latin Americans lay claim to this delicious invention. And truth be told, sweet potato fries (and pineapple) are much more common in the Americas. But we really don’t care who made them first – we’re just happy they did. And you can definitely find fries on nearly any French restaurant menu.
