- delicata squash
- Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi, kale gnocchi and sweet potato gnocchi

The only thing I’ve tried that has been a total air fryer fail was hamburgers! I literally tried to air fry hamburgers four times!
I came to the conclusion that to get a juicy delicious and moist burger, you really have to sear it! Air frying it took all of the moisture out of it.
Let’s face it there is nothing better than a grilled burger right? So for now, air frying chicken, shrimp and seafood burgers are what I’m focusing on!

How to Make a Sweet Potato in the Air Fryer – My Favorite Way
Air Fryer Sweet Potatoes can be made into delicious rounds with only a few simple ingredients like cinnamon, coconut oil and salt and pepper.
An example of what inconsistent cutting will look like! Be sure to keep your sweet potato rounds the same width.
Diameter does not matter as much as width does. To cook evenly and avoid over or under cooking, cut all sweet potato slices to 1/4 inch thick.

Air Fryer Sweet Potato Rounds
Crispy sweet potato rounds made in the air fryer, with only a bit of healthy oil! Delicious air fryer sweet potato slices your family will love!
- 3 medium sweet potatoes
- 1-1.5 tbsp coconut oil melted
- salt + pepper to taste
- cinnamon to taste
Wash outside skin of sweet potatoes. Slice sweet potatoes equally to about 1/4 inch for sweet potato rounds. If you want to make air fryer sweet potato chips, you will need to use a mandoline and slice very thin!
Add cut sweet potatoes to a medium bowl. Coat with melted coconut oil. Season with spices and toss until well coated.
Add sweet potato rounds to air fryer sprayed with coconut oil spray. Add potatoes in one layer, dividing them into a few batches if necessary.
Air Fry at 350F for 12 minutes. Turn up to 400F for 3 minutes. Thinner rounds will cook faster so if you are making air fryer sweet potato chips or haven't cut them to 1/4 inch they will cook up faster.
Serve immediately for maximum crispiness.
