Making Twice Baked Potatoes in an Air Fryer

The first step is to make the baked potatoes in the air fryer. I have a step by step recipe here if you want to read through that. Otherwise, I will give you a quick recap here. 

  • wash and clean the potatoes
  • rub the skin with olive oil
  • poke a few times with a fork
  • bake in the air fryer on 400ºF for about 35 minutes, until fork tender

Once the potatoes are tender, remove from the air fryer and slice in half. They are going to be HOT, so please be careful, or wait a few minutes until they have cooled a little. 

Remove the flesh from the inside of the potatoes leaving a little edge of potato inside the skin to help it hold up. 

Take the flesh and mash with the butter and sour cream. Add in the bacon and cheese and combine.

Spoon the mashed potato mixture back into the potato skins. The mashed potato stuffing will fill the potato skin and then add a few tablespoons more on top. 

Top the potatoes with more shredded cheese (of course) and place back into the air fryer. Bake at 400ºF again for 5-10 minutes, until the cheese is golden, melted and bubbly on top of the potatoes. 

Remove from the air fryer and ENJOY!!
