These adorable potato banknote get added brittle in the air fryer and are accumulated up with broiled cheese, bacon and onion for a appetizing appetizing snack. They can additionally be fabricated in the oven.

Potato Skins

We adulation our air fryer and use any befalling to let it appearance off its magic. One of the things it does absolutely able-bodied is potato skins.

If you don’t accept an air fryer, you can actually accomplish these potato bark appetizers in the oven, but the air fryer makes them so altogether that I’d advance you accede accepting one. Here’s a guide that will advice you accept a acceptable one. You won’t affliction the decision. It’s so quick to accomplish aliment in the air fryer and you won’t absence accepting to about-face on the oven.

More acceptable news: it takes sooo abundant beneath time to accomplish them in the air fryer than in the oven.

What Potatoes to Use for Potato Skins

The best potatoes for this appetizer are ellipsoidal chestnut potatoes. They’re acceptable abnormally because they accept a firmer bark that will brittle able-bodied and authority able-bodied back best up to eat. The abdomen get nice and bendable while baking.

You can additionally use Yukon golds, but they accept a thinner skin, so they don’t tend to authority up as well, or get as crispy. If you adopt that, again these are your winner! It absolutely comes bottomward to claimed preference.

I wouldn’t use added ample potatoes. Try to acquisition ones that are big abundant to accomplish a abundant potato baiter out of, but baby abundant that you don’t get too abounding from bistro aloof one.

How to Accomplish Air Fryer Potato Skins

The instructions beneath accommodate alternatives for baking the potatoes in the oven or microwave, but the final footfall is adapted in the air fryer.

Step One: Broil the Potatoes

To alpha authoritative this appetizer, you charge to broil the potatoes. I use my air fryer to broil the absolute “crispy on the outside, bendable on the inside” potatoes. If you’re application an air fryer, preheat to 380 degrees F (190 C) for about 3 minutes. Rub the potatoes agilely with olive oil and bore the potatoes a few times top and basal with a angle or knife.

Bake the potatoes for about 35-40 minutes, flipping over center to ensure they get adapted evenly. They’re done back they feel breakable back squeezed.

If you’re baking them in the oven, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 C), oil and bore the potatoes, and broil for about 60 minutes, until tender.

You can baker the potatoes in the microwave, if you want. They baker way faster. Baker for 5 account per side. If they aren’t breakable yet, add an added 2 account per ancillary until they are. The alone affair I don’t adulation about affable them in the bake is that it doesn’t acquiesce the banknote to get crispy, which is absolutely important for abundant potato skins. If you like them that way, again you’re all set!

Allow the potatoes to air-conditioned abundant that you can cut them and assignment with them calmly after afire yourself. This usually takes about 30 minutes.

Step Two: Basic the toppings

The two must-have capacity for air fryer potato banknote are cheese and bacon. While the potatoes are baking, you can basic these capacity and accept them ready.

Shred the cheese. I use a average or aciculate cheddar for best flavor.

Cook the bacon. Accomplish abiding you get the bacon nice and crispy. Assets the bacon grease. We’re activity to use it on the potatoes. Again chop up the bacon into little bits.

Step Three: Adapt the skins

The abutting footfall is to alveolate out the potato skins. This is a aerial operation, because you appetite to abolish abundant of the beef so they aren’t too abundant and potatoey, but leave abundant potato to be athletic and toothsome.

Cut the potatoes in half. Use a beanery or a allotment baller to beat out the centermost of the potato, abrogation about 1/4″ all around.

Coat the outsides and abdomen of the potatoes with the larboard over bacon grease. If you don’t accept abundant grease, supplement with broiled adulate or olive oil. Again alkali and pepper the central of the potato.

Step Four: Air Fry the Potato Skins

Last footfall is to air fry the potato skins. Add them in a distinct band to the basket. Air frying the banknote abandoned for 10 account at 400 degrees F (200 C). Cast them over center through. This will get them nice and brittle all around.

Potato Skins

Then accessible the bassinet and add the cheese in the centermost of anniversary potato. I like to bunched it bottomward as abundant as possible, because abstracted strands of disconnected cheese accept a way of aerial off the potatoes. Baker for 3 minutes, until the cheese is melted.

Transfer the potato banknote to a bowl and top with the bacon $.25 and blooming onions. Serve them appropriate away, as they’re best back warm. You can set out some added toppings to add, like acerb cream, salsa, and Cajun seasoning.
