Equipment

  • air fryer

Ingredients

  • 2 large russet potatoes
  • 2 strips bacon cooked and chopped
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp scallions
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • olive oil

Instructions

  • Scrub the potatoes under cold water and then pat them dry with a paper towel.
  • Using a fork, poke holes all over the potatoes. Drizzle the potatoes with olive oil and season with Kosher salt.
  • Place the potatoes in the air fryer basket and cook for 42 minutes at 400 degrees F.
  • Once the 40 minutes are up, cut lengthwise slits in the top of each potato.
  • Add 1 tbsp of butter to each potato and then cover with cheese and bacon. Air fry for 2 minutes at 400 degrees F.
  • Top the potatoes with sour cream and scallions, and enjoy!

Notes

  • No need to wrap the potatoes in aluminum foil just poke holes all over the potatoes using a fork so the steam can escape.
  • Make sure to scrub the potatoes with cold water and then pat them dry with a paper towel before seasoning.
  • If you don't like it too cheesy, add less cheese.
