Servings: 6 potatoes


  • baking sheet
  • cooking spray
  • chopsticks or wooden spoons
  • small bowl


  • 6 Russet potatoes
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ¾ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 3 green onions, chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with foil and coat well with cooking spray.
  • Slice the potatoes into 1/4 inch slices, leaving 1/8 inch at the bottom of each slice uncut so that the potatoes stay together.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the olive oil, butter, garlic salt, and pepper. Brush the mixture over the potatoes, holding the slices apart so that some of the mixture gets in between. Save any remaining mixture.
  • Place the potatoes on the sheet pan and bake 1 hour until potatoes are tender and brown. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  • Place the cheddar cheese in between the potato slices. Brush with remaining olive oil and butter mixture. Return to oven for an additional 3 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
    Dollop sour cream on top, followed by bacon and chopped green onions.
  • Air Fryer Instructions: Preheat an air fryer to 350 degrees F. Prepare potatoes and butter mixture as directed in recipe above.
    THe quanity of potatoes you can fit in the air fryer depends on the size of your basket. I can do 3 large Russets in this one.
    Place potatoes in the basket and cook in the preheated air fryer for 15 minutes. Brush potatoes with butter mixture, making sure it drips down the fanned-out slices to ensure potatoes will not be dry. Cook until potatoes are cooked through, about 15 minutes more.
    Remove potatoes from the basket and brush with any remaining butter mixture. Top with more cheese and your toppings.
