Pro Tips 

  • Do not thaw! These potato skins will cook best directly from frozen.
  • No oil needed! These will cook perfectly without any added oil. 
  • Leave space between the potato skins. Don’t overlap or crowd the air fryer basket. 
  • Cook in batches if you want to make a lot of potato skins.
  • Use tongs to remove them as they will be hot. 
  • Air fryer temperatures will vary depending on the type and model, so use the cook time listed as a guide. I recommend starting with less time, checking food for doneness, and adjusting as needed.

Delicious Variations

  • Sour Cream – Top with sour cream or serve some on the side for dipping.
  • Add Toppings – Cheese and bacon are the most common toppings on frozen potato skins. We also like to add olives, jalapenos, green onions or some pulled pork.
  • Dip Them – Serve with barbeque sauce, Ranch dressing or your favorite dipping sauce. My personal fave is this 5 Minute Remoulade sauce.

Prep And Storage

  • Prep Ahead – No prep needed! Go from the freezer to the air fryer to the table in minutes. 
  • Store – Place leftover potato skins in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. 
  • Freeze – Refreezing potato skins once they’ve been cooked is not recommended.
