What are the best potatoes to use?
These twice baked potatoes are best made with starchy large potatoes. Russet work great and Yukon Gold or baking potatoes will do the job nicely.
It’s best not to use waxy potatoes which won’t be as fluffy.
Can you make these in the oven?
If you don’t have an air fryer, you can make these in the oven. I love that making them in the air fryer frees up my oven to make the main, and it gets them super nice and crispy, but they’ll turn out great oven baked too.
Bake the potatoes in the oven at 400F for around 60 to 70 minutes til crisp and soft. You can the place them under the broiler to brown and melt the cheese.
What do you serve them with?
These air fryer twice baked potatoes are great served with all of your favorite mains, they pair so easily with so many meals. Try them with:
- Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast
- Rosemary Garlic Steak
- Air Fryer Chicken Thighs
- Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb
- Use starchy potatoes for the best texture.
- Fully pre heat the air fryer before adding the potatoes so that they cook evenly through.
- Best served straight away, but they will keep well in the fridge for up to 4 days and can be reheated in the air fryer at 400F for 3 to 4 minutes to warm through and crisp back up.
These air fryer twice baked potatoes are one delicious side dish. So effortless to make and super super tasty!
