Air Fryer Twice Baked Potatoes - zweimal gebackene Kartoffeln

Air fryer twice baked potatoes, Luftfritteuse zweimal gebackene Kartoffeln, are for those times you're looking for something extra special, something extra yummy, and yet, something quite easy! 

I used the Instant Vortex Plus Air Fryer Oven to make these delicious potatoes. If you have something different, no problem. Simply adjust settings and cook time accordingly. 

Prep Time

30 minutes

Cook Time

43 minutes

Total Time

73 minutes


Makes 5 servings


  • 5 baking potatoes
  • olive oil
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • 6 tablespoon milk
  • 3 tablespoon butter
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat air fryer oven to 400°F on bake.
  2. Scrub potatoes and brush with olive oil if crispy skin is desired.
  3. Bake on middle rack for 35 minutes or until potatoes are tender when pierced with a knife.
  4. Remove potatoes from air fryer and let them cool for about 15 minutes.
  5. Lower temperature to 350°F.
  6. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Scoop out the flesh into a large bowl, being careful not to break the skins (potato shells).
  7. Into bowl with the potato flesh add sour cream, butter, salt, pepper and ½ cup cheese. Mix with hand mixer, slowly adding just enough milk to make the mixture creamy. 
  8. Spoon mixture back into the potato skins. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top.
  9. Bake for a further 8 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.


  • I used smaller baking potatoes so I could fit them all on one tray. I was only cooking for three people as well. If you're cooking for more people, you can use bigger potatoes on two trays.
  •  If you have leftover filling, no worries! It makes a great side dish by itself. Simply cover it and serve the next day with dinner, or serve it with your potatoes if you'd like. It's yummy when cold or hot.
