Ingredients

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 cup cooked chopped spinach, drained
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 cooked bacon strips, crumbled
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cranberries, coarsely chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • Preheat air fryer to 400°. Brush potatoes with oil. Place on ungreased tray in air-fryer basket. Cook until potatoes are tender, 30-40 minutes; cool slightly.
  • Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Scoop out pulp, leaving a ¼-inch thick shell. In a large bowl, mash the potato pulp; stir in spinach, ¾ cup cheese, bacon, onion, pecans, cranberries, butter, salt and pepper. Spoon into potato shells, mounding slightly.
  • Reduce heat to 360º. Place potato halves, cut side up, in air-fryer basket. Cook 10 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining ¼ cup cheese; cook until cheese is melted, 1-2 minutes.
