  • 4 large russet potatoes scrubbed and dried
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Cracked black pepper to taste
  • ½ cup heavy cream or milk
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup shredded cheese divided
  • Chopped bacon for garnish
  • Sour cream for garnish
  • Green onions for garnish (optional)


  • Preheat air fryer to 400F.
  • Wash and scrub the potatoes, then pat dry. Use a fork to poke holes in the potato
  • Rub all sides with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place potatoes into the air fryer basket and fry at 400 degrees F for 70 minutes, until the outside is crisp and the inside should be fork tender.
  • When potatoes are cool enough to handle, carefully cut them in half and scoop out the insides into a bowl.
  • Add butter, heavy cream, salt and pepper to taste. Use a hand mixer or potato masher to whip the potatoes until light and fluffy, adding more butter and heavy cream if desired.
  • Divide the mashed potato between the potato skins. Return to the air fryer for 4 minutes at 400 degrees F, until the tops begin to brown. Sprinkle with cheese and fry for an additional 1-2 minutes until melted.
  • Carefully transfer the baked potatoes from the air fryer to a serving plate. Top with bacon, sour cream, and green onions and serve hot.


  • 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.
