BLESS THIS MESS
Air fryer baked potatoes are a game-changer for potato lovers everywhere. These crispy, fluffy potatoes are an alternative to traditional baked potatoes.
Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C). Prick the scrubbed and dried potatoes all over with a fork or sharp knife. This will allow steam to escape and prevent the potatoes from bursting while cooking.
Rub the potatoes with olive oil or vegetable oil, ensuring that they are evenly coated. Then, season the potatoes with salt.
Place the potatoes in the air fryer basket, ensuring they are not touching each other. You may need to cook them in batches if you have a smaller air fryer.
Cook the potatoes for 40-45 minutes or until they are tender and easily pierced with a fork. Depending on the size of your potatoes and your air fryer, cooking times may vary slightly.
Carefully remove the potatoes from the air fryer using tongs or a spatula. Allow them to cool for a few minutes before handling.
To serve, use a knife to make a lengthwise cut in the top of each potato, then gently press the ends together to open the potato. Fluff the inside with a fork and add your desired toppings.
