Easy and Delicious Air Fryer Potato Skins

by Nellie

With so much free time on our hands, we have to keep finding new and creative ways to feed our family. Today I’ve got a super easy air fryer potato skins recipe with minimal ingredients that the family will love!

Our air fryer has been a life saver for us since we’ve been spending so much time indoors! If I don’t have to make something on the stove or I can heat up something that much quicker than the over I am so with it!

We have done so many different meals in our air fryer, from bacon, to burgers and fries, to mozzarella sticks to roasted vegetables and so much more! It has been one of our best purchases to keep this family of 5 fed!

There is still so much I want to do with my air fryer because the options are so endless! When things get back to normal around here and grocery stores are stocked again, I can’t wait to try out so many recipes!

In the meantime, these air fryer potato skins are everything. You guys know I love my potatoes, just last week I shared these air fryer roasted baby potatoes that are perfect as a dinner side or as a brunch staple!

These air fryer potato skins are super easy and only require 4 ingredients:

6 small baking potatoes 

½ Cup shredded cheddar cheese

½ Cup bacon bits

Thinly sliced chives

Over here in our house, we like a little sour cream too. 🙂

All you have to do is get some small baking potatoes put them in the air fryer.

Bake them for 20 minutes

Core out the middle, (an ice cream scoop works well for this!) but don’t take everything out! Be sure to leave a good rim around the edges.

Place the cheese to melt.

Add the bacon bits too for 5 minutes in the air fryer and boom!

A great snack, appetizer or even lunch for the family! Enjoy!
