  • 4 medium-sized russet potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Optional toppings: sour cream, shredded cheese, chives, bacon bits, etc. (because toppings make everything better!)



Preheat your air fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for about 5 minutes while you prepare the potatoes.

Prepare the potatoes: Scrub the russet potatoes clean under cold running water and pat them dry with a kitchen towel. Pierce each potato several times with a fork to allow steam to escape during cooking.

Coat with olive oil and season: Drizzle olive oil over the potatoes and rub it all over their skins. Season generously with salt and pepper, ensuring an even coating.

Air fry the potatoes: Place the seasoned potatoes in the preheated air fryer basket in a single layer, making sure they are not touching each other. Cook for 35-40 minutes, flipping halfway through, until the potatoes are tender and the skins are crispy.


Check for doneness: To check if the potatoes are done, insert a fork into the center of each potato. If it goes in easily and the potato feels soft, they're ready to be enjoyed!

Serve and top: Once the potatoes are cooked to perfection, carefully remove them from the air fryer and place them on a serving platter. Slice each potato open lengthwise and fluff up the insides with a fork. Serve hot with your favorite toppings, such as sour cream, shredded cheese, chives, bacon bits, or any other toppings you desire.
