To embark on this gastronomic adventure, gather these necessary ingredients:
You have the freedom to select the variety of potatoes you prefer, however, for optimal results, it is suggested to use Russet potatoes.
Oil & Salt
The Olive oil will help to keep the potatoes from drying out. It also adds flavor and ensures a crispier exterior.
If you were to use table salt or finely ground sea salt, the result might be excessively salty. Opting for coarse sea salt instead strikes the perfect balance, enhancing the flavor without overpowering the dish.
While some folks prefer the classic simplicity of a baked potato, others enjoy it adorned with flavorful toppings. Traditional enhancements include a dollop of butter, a spoonful of sour cream, and a sprinkle of green onions or chives to finish.
If you choose to top your potato with cheese, be sure to use a full-flavored variety for maximum impact. Cheddar or Swiss are classic options, but feel free to get creative and use the topping of your choice.
Let’s now dive into the cooking process to make these mouth-watering Ninja Foodi Baked Potatoes.
Begin by thoroughly washing the potatoes to ensure they are free of dirt. Dry them well before proceeding.
Next, coat the potatoes with a generous layer of olive oil. This prevents them from drying out and lends a delightful flavor while also helping to achieve that sought-after crispy exterior.
Sprinkle the potatoes evenly with coarse sea salt, enhancing the flavor without making the dish too salty.
Now place the potatoes in your Ninja Foodi. Set it to the “air fry” setting and let them cook until a knife can be easily inserted and removed. The cooking time will depend on the size of your potatoes.
Once ready, take out your potatoes and while hot, slice them open. Add butter, a dollop of sour cream, or any other toppings that you want.
Tips To Remember
- When picking potatoes, opt for those that are similar in size so they cook evenly.
- If the potatoes begin to smell burnt or do not seem done after the recommended cooking time has elapsed, adjust the heat setting of your Ninja Foodi and continue cooking until done.
- The Ninja Foodi Baked Potatoes are best served immediately after being cooked.
- Cooked potatoes are HOT – handled with care.
- If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days. To reheat, simply pop them into the oven or air fryer for a few minutes.

Once you remove your potatoes from the Ninja Foodi, scoop out all of the insides and place them in a bowl. To this add cream cheese, butter, sour cream or any other topping you desire. Now mix this together until creamy.
Once you have reached your desired consistency, fill the potato skins with this mixture. Sprinkle on more cheese and any other toppings if desired.
You can return the potatoes to the Ninja Foodi air fryer for a few minutes until golden brown and crispy. Serve hot with a side of sour cream and chives or bacon (or any topping of your choice).
