Air fryer baked potato recipe

Can you cook a baked potato in an air fryer? yes you can and not only is it quicker but we think they taste a lot better than oven baked and a million times tastier than one cooked in a microwave.

Crispy outside and a fluffy inside, and a healthy mid week meal. Prep, in the air fryer, have your post work shower (or gin I don’t judge!) and your dinner will be ready in no time. A stress free meal or side dish.

Scrub potatoes and pat to dry.

Rub with oil and sprinkle with salt.

Place potatoes in the air fryer.

Open the air fryer, turn potatoes and cook for another 10 mins, until they are soft inside and crispy outside. Note: if the potatoes are large, you may need to cook them for a further 10 mins.

Hint: Air fryer temperatures can vary, so start at the lowest cook time given then check your potatoes and add more cooking time as needed.

Recipe Tips

  • seasoning – try some garlic powder alongside the salt.
  • Smaller potatoes may need less cooking time.
  • Larger potatoes may need more time. If they are not cooked enough return them to the air fryer and cook for another 5 or so minutes and re-check.
  • Don’t overcrowd your air fryer- leave enough space for the air to circulate.
  • how to tell if your potatoes are cooked? A normal knife should be able to slide into the potato flesh easily.
