On the nutrition value what serving size is that based from?
I’d say about 1 cup, give or take.
Any idea how long in an air fryer for 1-2 potatoes?
I’d say maybe around 10 minutes, give or take? I haven’t tried these in the air fryer yet, but that’d be a great cooking option!
So I am going to make these for a work party tomorrow but am having trouble trying to figure out if I should just cook them fully and then reheat at work? Or my other option would be to cut the sweet potatoes prior, put them in water in the fridge and the quickly assemble and pop in the oven at work. What would you suggest?
How fun! Either option would work honestly… I’d say it depends on how much time you have at work. You can store in an air-tight container in the fridge for 2-3 days and reheat in the microwave or back in the oven for 10 minutes to get them crispy again. Or baking them fresh is always delicious if you have the space/time to at work. Hope the work party goes well!
Best recipe I’ve found w/sweet potatoes. The entire family loved it! Thank you
These potatoes even pleased my picky husband who doesn’t care for sweet potatoes. They were very flavorful and easy to prepare. I put mine in along with a chicken dish at 350 degrees for 40 minutes and they were perfect. ❤️
Oh I’m so glad!! Sounds like a perfect compliment to the chicken dish too. Thanks for sharing!
Favorite sweet potato recipe. Make them every year for Thanksgiving!
I see the comment about reheating for 10 minutes. Is that at 400° also? Thanks!
Yes! You can reheat at 400.
These were delicious…
I only used 1 cup of flower, I also added some cumin, old bay seasoning, pepper, garlic powder, and I also minced up a bit of onion too add too them!
I made a seeet and spicy aoli to go with it!
