Air Fryer Baked Potato
Air fryer baked potatoes are fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside. They cook up in less time than the oven and are perfect every time.
- Serves: 2 persons
- 2large Russet potatoes
- 1tablespoon olive oil
- 1to 2 teaspoons salt
- Optional: chopped scallions, chives, parsley, butter, salt, pepper, shredded cheddar cheese, fresh bacon bits for garnish
Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2Scrub the potatoes and wash them very thoroughly. Dry them well with paper towels. The dryer they are the better the skins will crisp since they are frying instead of steaming.
Step 3Drizzle the potatoes with the oil and rub the oil all over. Sprinkle them with salt on all sides.
Step 4Place them in the air fryer basket and air fry at 400 F for 35 to 40 minutes.
Step 5You will know they are done when the internal temperature reaches 205 F. You can test it with a meat thermometer. You can also just insert a fork, and if it goes in easily, it’s most likely done. The outside will be deep brown and crisp.
Step 6Carefully remove the potatoes from the air fryer. Slice them open and top with butter, sour cream, herbs, cheese, or bacon bits.
