Air fryers are becoming extremely popular due to the affordability, energy saving and quickness in cooking your everyday foods – ready in a matter of minutes! Not only this, air fryers are known to be a much healthier option in cooking your food instead of your oiled up pan or tray. You can learn more about the many benefit to air fryers within our article, Benefits of Air Fryer Cooking – Health, Cost & Energy…it makes an excellent read whilst tucking into our air-fried dish!

Today we created the classic jacket potato, baked in an air fryer. Cooking the humble vegetable in the air fryer will give it a crispy outer-skin with a deliciously fluffy centre. Remember to add a pinch of Maldon Salt when rubbing the potato in a light coat of oil as the salt will absorb and draw out the moisture from the potato whilst baking.

  1. Start by pricking the potatoes with a fork.
  2. Once you have finished picking, place the potatoes in the air fryer and rub with the olive oil and sprinkle with Maldon Salt. Turn it on for 40 minutes until the potatoes are crispy on the outside and fluffy in the middles. We rotated the potatoes after 25 minutes to have an even bake on each side.
  3. To make the tuna mayonnaise filling, drain the tuna and add to a bowl. Mix with the mayonnaise, Maldon Salt, cracked black pepper, chopped chives and spring onions.
  4. Open the potatoes and melt some butter on first. Then spoon in the tuna mayonnaise, and top with grated cheddar. Sprinkle with a final few chives and serve with some salad.
