Prep time: 5 min  |  Cook time: 15 min  |  Total: 20 min



2 medium Sweet Potatoes

1 Tablespoon olive or vegetable oil

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon paprika

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Dipping Sauce:

1/4 cup mayo

1 teaspoon mustard

1 Tablespoon barbecue sauce

1 Tablespoon honey


1. Cut the sweet potatoes: To make the wedges, first cut off each end of the potato. Then cut the potato in half, then each of those sides in half and then in half again until you have long wedges. Next cut the long wedges in half again to make shorter wedges.

2. Put the wedges in a bowl and drizzle the oil over top and then mix together to coat them. Next, in a small bowl mix all the seasoning ingredients  together and sprinkle over the wedges. Mix together and make sure they all the wedges are coated.

3. Preheat the air fryer to 380 degrees and spray the basket with nonstick spray. Place the wedges in the basket in a single layer. You may have to do these in two batches. Cook for 8 minutes and then turn the wedges, then cook another 7 minutes.

4. While the wedges are cooking, make the dipping sauce. In a small bowl, add the mayo, mustard, bbq sauce and honey. Mix together.

5. Remove the wedges and plate up, start dipping and enjoy!
