How to make this into a hearty meal:

If you want to make sure that the baked potatoes in the air fryer can be a full-blown meal and filling, serve chili con carne, fork-tender pulled pork, or taco meat at the potato bar and serve it in a slow cooker.

How to make this Air Fryer Baked Potato Bar:

Step 1: Prep the potatoes

Begin by washing the potatoes, but leave the skins on the potatoes. Then using a fork poke holes all over the potatoes.

This helps vent the potatoes and make sure they bake evenly. However, you don’t need to wrap the potatoes in foil like you might in the oven.

Step 2: Cook potatoes

Place the prepared potatoes in the microwave and cook them for 5 minutes.

Step 3: Season the potatoes

Carefully remove the potatoes from the microwave and then spray the parbaked potatoes with oil (either avocado or olive oil) and then sprinkle the potatoes with salt and pepper.

Step 4: Bake potatoes

After the potatoes have been seasoned place them into the air fryer and bake them for 20-25 minutes at 400 degrees F or 200 degrees C until the potatoes are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

Step 5: Top the potatoes
