  • Air fryer


  • 4 Alsum russet potatoes washed, dried, about 6 ounces each
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive oil
  • 1 Teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter unsalted
  • 4 Tablespoons Non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tablespoons Chives fresh, chopped, green onions can be substituted


  • Preheat the air fryer to 400°F.
  • Clean and dry the potatoes, pierce the potatoes with the tip of a knife in random places around the potato to allow steam to escape as they are cooking.
  • Place the potatoes in the air fryer basket and cook for 30 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 205°F. It may take longer if the potatoes are bigger. To speed up the process, the potatoes can be put in the microwave prior to placing them in the air fryer. Time will vary depending on the size of the potatoes as well as the wattage of your microwave. For best flavor check to make sure the internal temperature of the potato is 205°F to 215°F.
  • Brush the outside of the potatoes with oil and season with salt. Place the potatoes back in the air fryer for 1-2 minutes to get the skin nice and crispy.
  • Remove the potatoes and allow them to cool slightly before slicing open. Top each potato with ½ a tablespoon of butter.
  • Serve the potatoes with the non-fat Greek yogurt and top with chives.


  • Additional toppings can be added if desired:
    • Bacon, cheddar cheese, and green onions are classic, but try roasted mushrooms, feta cheese, sundried tomatoes, black olives, artichoke hearts, smoked salmon, arugula, broccoli, spinach, pepper jack cheese, goat cheese, sour cream)
  • Make plenty for the whole family and have them customize their own by setting out a bunch of toppings on the dinner table.
