  • 2 medium-sized russet potatoes
  • olive or vegetable oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups grated Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 pound bacon cooked and chopped
  • scallions chopped
  • sour cream
  1. Pre-heat the air fryer to 400ºF.
  2. Slice the potatoes in half lengthwise, brush both sides with oil and season with salt and black pepper. Transfer the potatoes, cut side up to the air fryer basket and air-fry at 400ºF for 20 minutes. Flip the potatoes over and air-fry at 400ºF for an additional 10 minutes.
  3. Scoop the flesh out of the potato, leaving about ½-inch of the potato in the skin. Brush the inside of the potato skins with oil and season again with salt and pepper. Air-fry at 400ºF, skin side up, for 10 minutes.
  4. Fill the potato skin with the grated Cheddar cheese and bacon. Return the skins to the air fryer and air-fry at 360°F for 1 to 2 minutes, or just until the cheese is melted. Top with the chopped scallions and serve with sour cream.
