AIR FRY "BAKED" JACKET POTATO (plus Friday Question)


I'm on a potato roll but there are a zillion other veggies that work in the air fryer, as well. So fun! By the way, her name is Mable and I love her. Also, I'm on the hunt for a waffle knife for waffle fries.

Muwhahahaha!

PS: This first video is comin'atcha live from my phone. That's all from me. I'm done with work for the day and I'm about to go make a Jersey plate of fries.

Friday Question: Do you like potatoes and if so, what kind? Are you able to eat them deep-fried? I cannot. Hurts my tummy.

  1. When I was a little we would have a bonfire in the fall and toss potatoes in to cook. Black on the outside creamy inside.
    No bonfires in Tucson... so I put potatoes in a hot oven no foil, and the outside gets crispy hard inside soft and creamy inside. I eat them plain or with salt and pepper maybe a pat of butter but not always. So good and reminds me of my childhood.

  3. The jacket potatoes do look good. Thirty-five minutes next time? I have been seeing air fryers everywhere recently. We don't fry much of anything but I may have to investigate.

    1. I think maybe, yes. Although, once we got them to our plates, the jackets got a bit softer and the insides were sooooo creamy.

      Air fryers are funny names. It's so much more than fake frying foods. Mine is a small fan oven, so hot air blows around. Great for cookies/biscuits.

  4. I haven't had a jacket potato in years!

    You call that a little snow! We had snow here in the UK too, I'm glad to say it lasted one and then the rain washed it all away.

      That really is a wee bit for here. How often does it snow, there?

    1. Thanks, Gary! We love jacket potatoes here at home. Do you eat them often?

  9. Potatoes? oh yes please! Boiled, mashed, roasted, made into chips and deep fried, made into potato pancakes (latkes), as a potato bake with layered cheeses, I'll eat them all. I do not like those gluey instant mashed potatoes though.

    3. I am not a fan but ... will say there was one time when a friend's mom made them into a lasagna with instant mash and onions and I tell you what? I went back for thirds and fourths!

  10. We like potatoes! You know - po-ta-toes. Boil them, mash them, put them in a stew...
    And I am ninety-nine percent certain one box under the tree contains an air fryer.

    1. I say it with a b - Ba ta toes. I can't help it. Or, I could but then I have to stop and really think before I pronounce. Too much work.

      Very cool that you have one under the tree. They are so fun!

  11. I wonder how pumpkin seeds would be roasted in the air fryer? You make me so hungry.

    1. I made the pumpkin seeds in Mable and they were crazy good. But ... I had to use the bottom well so they didn't blow away with the fan.

  12. Boiled, mashed, or fried potatoes suit me. I've never been fond of baked potatoes.

  13. Wow, Mabel is really a wonderful new thing! Did not know you could do baked spuds in an air fryer...Love your new rack too!

    1. I love Mable (spelled both ways, but I lean toward le. Air fryers are so much more than fryers. It's just an egg-shape fan oven. Cookies, cakes, all kinds of bakes work well.

  19. Another potato lover here - especially baked!

    Is the air fryer really like a little convection oven, then? And if I remember right, convection ovens cook more quickly than conventionalovens. That's the best of all worlds right there!

    2. Hey Jenny! Yes, it's a fan oven (aka convection air), that blows about really really fast in an egg-shape. Faster and no preheats for mostly everything that I make.

    Glad you are getting on well with the air fryer.

    All the best Jan
