Air Fryer Baked Sweet Potato

by Nadeen N. Risi, MS, RDN, LDN

Wanting a baked sweet potato but do not have 60 to 75 minutes to spare to cook one in the oven? Air frying your potato speeds up the process but still gives you the same comfort as an oven baked sweet potato. This side packs in some extra nutrition with fiber and antioxidants and you can go savory or sweet with some of the toppings.
