We wanted baked potatoes but it was too hot to run the oven (and it takes too long) and the Instant Pot was busy….so I pulled out my trusty Air Fryer and viola – perfect baked potatoes with CRISPY skin in under 45 minutes. Air Fryer Baked Potatoes are my go-to now.
The air fryer is AMAZING to getting crispy foods without actually frying. And if you love bacon on your potato like I do…you can cook it in the air fryer too! See how to cook bacon in the air fryer here.
Here is how to make perfect baked potatoes in the air fryer.
- Russet Potatoes
- Olive Oil
- Garlic Powder
- Wash and dry potatoes. Poke with prongs of fork to pierce potato skin.
- Place potatoes in air fryer basket.
- Air fry at 347F for 30 minutes.
- Flip potatoes and fry an additional 10 minutes or until done.
