About this Recipe

Brava Air Fried Potato Skins are a gameday staple. All the goodness of a loaded baked potato in an easy-to-share appetizer? Sign us up! The name of the game here, no pun intended, is to pile the potato skins high with the shredded cheese filling. We’ve provided measurements for the cheesy filling, but if you have larger potatoes feel free to add more shredded cheese as needed. Once cooked, top the potato skins with sour cream, cracked black pepper, and any of your favorite fixin’s.
