  1. Prepare the Potatoes:
  • Scrub and clean the potatoes thoroughly. Pat them dry with a paper towel.

  • Allow the potatoes to cool slightly. Cut them in half lengthwise.
  • Scoop out the flesh, leaving about 1/4 inch of potato attached to the skin.
  1. Create Potato Skins:
  • Brush the inside and outside of each potato skin with a bit of olive oil.
  • Place the potato skins back in the air fryer and air fry for an additional 8-10 minutes or until they are crispy.
  1. Load with Goodness:
  • Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese inside each potato skin.
  • Add cooked and crumbled bacon on top of the cheese.
  1. Final Air Fry:
  • Return the loaded potato skins to the air fryer and air fry for an additional 5-7 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
