Crispy Cheesy Potato on plate with sour cream on topThis is a take on a baked potato, made in an air fryer. Giving the top of the potato very thin slits and brushing it with butter causes the potato edges to crisp up nicely. This way, you have a soft baked potato bottom, and crispy french-fry-like texture on top. Sprinkling shredded cheese between the ridges makes it creamy, too. So yummy!


Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes


  • 1 large potato, cleaned and dried
  • 1 Tbsp melted butter
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese
  • sour cream


  1. Preheat air fryer to 350 F. Slice the potato crosswise at 1/8 inch increments, but don't cut all the way through. Leave 1/4 inch intact at the bottom.
  2. slicing potato half way thru
  3. Brush melted butter between the slices and all over the skin.
  4. adding butter to slits in Potato
  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  6. salt & pepper on potato
  7. Cut some parchment paper so it fits into the bottom of the air fryer basket, then lightly grease it. Place inside, then put in potato, cut-side down. Cook for 35 minutes.
