Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat air fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Brush potatoes gently with 1 teaspoon oil; place in the basket of the air fryer and cook for 10 minutes.

  • Brush potatoes with 1 additional teaspoon oil; continue cooking in the air fryer for 10 minutes. Coat with the remaining oil and cook until tender, about 10 minutes more.

  • Cut the cooked potatoes in half. Spoon the insides into a bowl; add 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese and mix well.

  • Place onion and bacon in a skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until bacon is evenly browned, about 10 minutes.

  • Stuff the skins with the potato-Cheddar cheese mixture, onion, and bacon. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.

  • Return the stuffed potatoes to the air fryer; cook until cheese is melted, about 6 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

The potatoes can also be baked in an oven.

Butter may be substituted for the olive oil.

Use any cheese you prefer.

You can cook additional bacon and onion, and then set the extra amount aside before combining with the potato. The extra bacon and onion can then be used to garnish the potato along with parsley.

These turned out good but my husband and I both agree that they needed some kind of cream in the stuffing to make them smooth and creamy like twice baked potatoes typically are. A couple other things I will mention is that you need to plan on 20 extra minutes for your airfryer to heat to 350. Lastly, the ingredient list calls for you to peel and slice your potatoes in half. Do not peel your potatoes or you will not have a shell to put them in. Read More
