Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 10 medium russet potatoes
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, melted, divided
  • 3 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 3 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 pound sharp cheddar cheese, sliced very thin
  • 1 bunch fresh chives, sliced
  • 1/2 pound cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup sour cream


  • Two Wooden Spoons
  • Small Bowl
  • Silicone Brush
  • Step 1

    Install the wire rack on Level 1. Select AIR ROAST, 2 LEVEL, set temperature to 425°F, and set time to 60 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin preheating.

  • Step 2

    Place 2 wooden spoons along the long sides of each potato. Working one potato at a time, use a large chef knife to slice potatoes crosswise into 1 /4-inch slices, stopping once the knife reaches the spoons. 

  • Step 3

    In a small bowl, whisk together melted butter, garlic, paprika, parsley and salt.

  • Step 4

    Reserve 3 tablespoons of the butter mixture and set aside. Using a brush, gently spread butter mixture over potatoes, being careful not to split them open. Place 5 potatoes on the Ninja® Sheet Pan and 5 in the air fry basket. 

  • Step 5

     When the unit has preheated, place pan on wire rack on Level 1 and slide basket into the rails of Level 3. Close oven door to begin cooking. 

  • Step 6

     After 55 minutes, remove pan and basket. Insert slices of cheese into every other slit in each potato. Then brush potatoes with remaining butter mixture. 

  • Step 7

    Return pan to wire rack on Level 1 and slide basket into rails of Level 3 and close oven door to resume cooking for the remaining 5 minutes. 

  • Step 8

    When cooking is complete, top each potato with sour cream, chives, and crumbled bacon. Serve immediately.
