We follow a starch based food plan which means we get to eat a lot of potatoes and sweet potatoes. That is why I am frequently experimenting with different ways to eat sweet potatoes. My favorites are Japanese Sweet Potatoes and Hannah Yams. Today I am excited to share a couple different ways we enjoy these amazingly delicious sweet potatoes.
I wish you could all come over and share this Sweet Potato Apple Fritter with me!
Although this is quite easy to make I thought you might enjoy seeing a video of me making it. Like they say a picture is worth a thousand words.
Japanese Sweet Potatoes and Hannah Yams are perfectly lovely simply baked in the oven. In fact they are a regular part of our weekly Batch Cooking. I usually eat one sweet potato a day and never tire of them. I wanted to make a dessert one night and when I looked around at what I had to make something with I came up with this combination that we have enjoyed many times. The Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer crisps up the sweet potato skin and the banana and apple cook a little, the cinnamon or gingerbread spice adds a lovely flavor and makes the kitchen smell divine. To guild the lily a drizzle of California Balsamic Pomegranate Balsamic vinegar is a nice touch. Any flavor of Balsamic vinegar will work here – pick one of your favorites – I like the fruit flavors for this recipe. If you decide to order from California Balsamic use the code Nutmeg Notebook in the message box on the check out page and enter in the names of two vinegar flavors you would like to try and they will include 2 sample size bottles with your order!
I make these air fried Japanese Sweet Potatoes and Hannah Yams all the time in the Breville Smart Oven Air Fryer. It’s wonderful on top of a Chopped Salad. It can be a side dish at lunch or dinner topped with some Taco Lentils or BBQ Lentils, Red Lentil Chili or with a veggie burger and corn on the cob. Simply sprinkled with cinnamon you have dessert! That is a Holland Bowl Mill wood plate in the above photo. Check out all of their beautiful hand crafted products using our affiliate link Holland Bowl Mill.

Sweet Potato Apple Fritter
1 Japanese Sweet Potato or Hannah Yam baked cold from the fridge
1 ripe banana – sliced
1 apple cored and sliced
Cinnamon or gingerbread spice
Use a cold baked sweet potato from the fridge. Cut it in half and using the palm of your flatten the potato half – repeat for both halves. Next cover the potato halves with banana slices, then a layer of apple slices. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon or ginger bread spice. Place each half on the air frying rack. Place in a cold air fryer set to 400 degrees for approximately 18 minutes – check it at 15 and watch closely so the apples don’t get too done. Serve warm or chilled. Delicious! It reminds me of an apple fritter!

Air Fried Scored Sweet Potato
1 sweet potato of your choice, Garnet, Japanese or Hannah
Cinnamon if desired
Take a prebaked sweet potato cold from the fridge. Cut it in half and then score it crosswise. Place on air fryer rack and place in a cold air fryer set to 400 degrees for 20 minutes. How long it takes to get brown will depend on the size of the potato and how much moisture it has. Check on it around 15 minutes and watch closely – remove it when it’s lightly brown and the skin is crispy.
