Cheesy potatoes in the Air fryer
I love to add lots of cheese to my Air fryer baked potatoes. You can cheddar, Monterrey jack cheese, any kind of Mexican shredded blend or any sharp white cheese if you like.
When it comes to cheese in my house, we love Parmesan the most. You can add it here too! In this particular recipe i used cheddar though, because it melts so well and bright in color.
Honestly, you dont have to be a perfect cook to enjoy amazing dishes made in your Air fryer. Its so easy to use! Try these cool oil free Air fryer buffalo cauliflower or Air Fryer fish and chips recipes! So good!
