  • 3 large baking potatoes like russet or Maris piper
  • 2-3 tbs milk
  • 1 tbs butter
  • Olive oil


  • Potato flesh from baked potatoes
  • 1/3 cup sliced roasted peppers drained
  • 1/4 cup softened cream cheese or Goat cheese
  • 2 tbs fresh basil chopped
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Scrub potatoes. Dry and pierce with a fork in several places. Rub with olive oil. Bake either in the oven or air fryer at 400F/200C for approximately 1 hour.
  • Let potatoes cool slightly so they can be handled. Cut each potato in half lengthwise and scoop out the flesh into a medium bowl.
  • Add the butter, cream cheese/goat cheese and milk and mash them. Add the roasted peppers and basil. Stir to combine well. Add salt and pepper if necessary.
  • Divide the filling into 6 equal portions and fill the empty potato skins.
  • To complete in the air fryer--air fry filled potatoes at 400F/200C until browned on the top; about 5 minutes.
  • For conventional oven--place potatoes on a baking sheet and broil on high until golden on the top; about 2 minutes.
