  • 1 batch Air Fryer Baked Potatoes
  • 1 cup Cheddar Jack Cheese shredded, divided
  • 8 slices Bacon cooked, and chopped
  • ½ cup Sour Cream
  • Fresh Chives chopped


  • Preheat the air fryer to 385F/196C.
  • Cut the cooled baked potatoes in half lengthwise. Use a small spoon to carefully remove the potato from the inside, leaving a ¼-inch “rim” attached to the shell.
  • Brush or spray potatoes with cooking oil. Generously season with salt and pepper.
  • Place the potatoes into the air fryer basket, skin side up. Cook for 10 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking time.
  • Sprinkle half of the cheese evenly inside each of the potato skins. Cook for 5 more minutes, or until potato skin is golden brown and cheese is melted.
  • Remove to a plate and repeat with any remaining skins. Load up with sour cream, bacon, more cheese, and chives, and serve warm.



  • Pro Tip: This recipe can be made in the air fryer unit with a basket or the air fryer oven. If you are using the air fryer oven, use the middle rack and select the "Air Fry" function.
