Air fryer bacon wrapped stuffed potatoesBacon wrapped potatoes are a popular side dish or appetizer and a great way to use up your small potatoes. My version of this recipe is irresistibly flavorful. The potato filling is creamy, cheesy, and perfectly seasoned.

Here is what you’ll need to make bacon wrapped stuffed potatoes in an air fryer or oven.

Ingredients:

Red small potatoes– they have a subtly sweet and creamy flavor. The waxy texture helps them stay firm and hold their shape throughout the cooking.

You can use mixed or any kind of small potatoes.

For the mashed potato filling

Garlic -a base flavor for the potatoes. Use the smashed garlic boiled with the potatoes or add fresh grated garlic.

Butter– add creaminess

Sour Cream – for a creamy texture and tangy flavor balance the taste.

Parmesan cheese or cheddar cheese– for a cheesy flavorful potato filling.

Green onion or chives finely chopped. You can also add dried oregano if desired for more herby flavor and aromatic.

Salt and pepper to taste 

How to Make Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Potatoes

Air fryer bacon wrapped stuffed potatoesAdd the red baby potatoes, smashed garlic, and salt (about a teaspoon) into a pot with water. Boil the potatoes until fork tender.

Drain the water and save the smashed garlic if desired. Let it cool for a few minutes and cut the potatoes in half. Scoop out about three-quarters of the potato flesh and place it in a small bowl. You need to leave some of the flesh on the potato skin to keep its shape when wrapped in bacon.

For the Potato filling

This potato filing is like making mashed potatoes. In a bowl with the tender potato flesh, add the smashed boiled garlic or grated fresh garlic, melted butter, sour cream, grated cheese, and finely chopped green onion. Then season with salt and fresh ground black pepper.

Bacon wrapped stuffed potatoesFill each hallowed potato that halves with the creamy mashed potato filling and sandwich them together.

Lay half a strip of bacon on a plate and place the stuffed potato on one end of the bacon and roll the potato to wrap in bacon. Loosely wrap the potatoes with bacon if you don’t want too much of the potato filling oozing out. Secure with a toothpick.

Tip

Soaked the toothpicks in water for a few minutes to avoid burning the toothpick while cooking in the air fryer.

Place in the air fryer basket or baking tray lined with parchment paper.
