Are you ready to make the best air fryer baked potato you’ll ever taste? It’s a very well loved recipe, one of our favorite air fryer recipes!
If you’re here to learn how to bake a potato you’re in the right spot. I’m going to not only show you how to bake a potato but show you how to make the best baked potato you’ve ever tasted! I love my air fryer and I use it at least once a week to make baked potatoes. Since I have an air fryer the only way I make baked potatoes are in the air fryer. The air fryer baked potatoes are the so much better than making a baked potato in the oven. When you put on the seasonings it just takes the potatoes to another level.
It’s so good you could eat it without toppings.
We all love baked potatoes, we all get them when you’re out to eat, especially at a steakhouse. Whenever I’m eating one I enjoy when they’re salted, but man I always wanted MORE flavor on the crispy baked potato skin. Oh and no soggy baked potatoes, please! I’m not sure I know anyone who wants to eat soggy potato skin.
My daughter is just like me. She loves fried foods, and she’s obsessed with baked potatoes. If we go anywhere out to eat, she has to have a baked potato! Making a baked potato at home is a total pain. I’m always trying new things to get that perfect baked potato.
Why should you get an air fryer?
If you want really crispy stuff without frying this air fryer is excellent! Fries are crispy, our potatoes are crispy on the outside and perfectly fluffy on the inside.
This is NOT a deep fryer. Think of it more like a convection oven. You can even bake in your air fryer!
At first, I used it thinking I could fry anything that I would typically fry like zeppoles or even battered cookies. In all honesty, I didn’t like it because I was approaching it the wrong way. I was trying to make deep fried desserts, and the Air Fryer isn’t made to do that.
It helps make some fried foods that you’d usually enjoy a much healthier option by using an air oven. You can cook without any add oil, and it’s oil free cooking unless you’re making our Air Fryer Baked Potatoes with Parsley Salt, and Garlic!
The oil helps the potatoes get that beautiful crispy skin. Who doesn’t love a crispy baked potato on the outside and feather light cooked inside?! Ohh and that salted garlic crust is INSANE!!
They will be gobbled up as soon as they hit the plate.
Once I realized it wasn’t a typical fryer and I couldn’t do batters a whole new world opened up! I made delicious baked potatoes. In only 35 minutes! Bigger potatoes may take a bit longer and smaller potatoes will cook up quicker. I have even done baby baked potatoes like this. Each baby potato is a flavor burst in your mouth, yum!
Kay was squealing with excitement to have a perfectly baked potato at home. These Air Fryer Baked Garlic Parsley Potatoes are so good that she gobbles a whole one up!
This recipe is great for all kinds of potatoes. If you eat the skin of the sweet potato (you should try it if you don’t, so good for you!) you could even use it for that.
Why not just make a microwave baked potato, why an airfryer baked potato?
You will not get a crispy skin in the microwave. Microwaves result in more of a gluey potato, cookout essential nutrients, and just won’t pack as much flavor as this air fryer baked potato recipe.
These are perfect for your next cookout or even alongside dinner. We make them at least once a week, either air fryer baked potato or air fryer baked sweet potato. When the whole family loves and enjoys something we tend to make it often and this air fryer baked potato recipe is a staple in our home.
Air fryer sweet potatoes are a must try. It’s just as good as our air fryer baked potato but sweeter.
I like to slice the potato open and then open it up and push from the bottom up, so the potato just bursts open!
