Loaded Potato Bites FAQs

Can I make these in the air fryer?

Talk about making this recipe even easier, I love any reason to not use the oven! However, the cook time on these is pretty long to get the potatoes cooked through. If you do them in the air fryer, thinner potato slices will be better, and you can’t overlap them or stack them. I would air fry them at 400 for 20 minutes and see how they are! It’s worth a shot.

How can I take these to the next level?

Want to really amp up your loaded potato bites? Start by using real, crispy bacon! Cook your bacon and chop it up. Then, the next way you can really make these good is by using a block of cheese and shredding it yourself. Shredded cheese has a coating on it that makes it not melt as beautifully as freshly shredded cheese does, so that is definitely a great option to make these even better.
