Air Fryer Baked Potato Recipe

Since we got our air fryer, I’m consistently on the lookout for good air fryer recipes. We love our air fryer! It’s changed the way we cook and I love the ease and convenience. Today, we’re sharing one of our new favorite dishes: our air fryer baked potato recipe!

Really, it isn’t much of a recipe because it’s so easy, but this method produces the most delicious baked potatoes I’ve ever had. The potatoes cook to a delectable golden crispness on the outside while remaining perfectly fluffy and soft on the inside! The taste and texture combination makes a splendid meal.

I’m hungry so let’s get cooking!

That’s it! Easy, breezy!

You might be asking why you wouldn’t just use a microwave instead of an air fryer. Baked potatoes from the microwave just don’t have the same texture and flavor of an air fryer baked potato! Microwave baked potatoes lack that scrumptious crispy outside and just don’t taste as good. Once you’ve tried this air fryer baked potato recipe, you’ll never want to make them in the microwave again! Sure, cooking in the air fryer is going to take longer than the microwave, but the results are worth it. Trust me!

Due to social distancing, it will just my husband and I for Christmas Dinner at home. I'm planning on having a roast and baked potatoes and I'm going to try in our air fryer per your suggestion. I'm trying to make lemonade out of a lemon so our simple meal will be less prep and cleanup but I'll certainly miss my children and grandchildren.
