Air Fryer Stuffed Sweet Potatoes Recipe

These stuffed sweet potatoes make a perfect holiday side dish. To save time, prepare them in the morning, then refrigerate after stuffing. Finish baking them in the air fryer just before serving.




  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 cup cooked chopped spinach, drained
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 cooked bacon strips, crumbled
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh cranberries, coarsely chopped
  • ⅓ cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • ¼ tsp. kosher salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper

1. Preheat air fryer to 400°. Brush potatoes with oil. Place on tray in air-fryer basket. Cook until the potatoes are tender, 30-40 minutes; cool slightly.

2. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Scoop out pulp, leaving a ¼-in.-thick shell. In a large bowl, mash the potato pulp; stir in spinach, ¾ cup cheese, bacon, onion, cranberries, pecans, butter, salt and pepper. Spoon into potato shells, mounding mixture slightly.

3. Reduce heat to 360°. Place potato halves, cut side up, on tray in air-fryer basket. Cook 10 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining ¼ cup cheese; cook until cheese is melted, 1-2 minutes.
