Stuffed air fried potatoes are the epitome of comfort food. While many might recall the crispy allure of potato pancakes during Hanukkah, these stuffed potatoes present a different joy, merging the crispy exterior with the rich, savory essence of various fillings.

Crafting the Perfect Stuffed Air Fried Potato

1. Ingredients:

  • 4 large Russet potatoes
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup cooked bacon bits
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil spray

2. Preparation:

  • Wash and dry the potatoes. Prick them with a fork to allow steam to escape.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 390°F.
  • Spray the potatoes with olive oil and season with salt.
  • Air fry for 35-40 minutes or until tender.
  • Let them cool, then cut a slice off the top and scoop out the insides, leaving a thin wall.
  • Mix the scooped potato with cheese, bacon bits, green onions, and sour cream. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Stuff this mixture back into the potato shells.

3. Final Air Frying:

  • Return the stuffed potatoes to the air fryer.
  • Air fry for an additional 5-7 minutes or until the tops are golden and crispy.
