Air-Fryer Broccoli & Cheese Baked Potatoes
Pierce potatoes all over with a fork. Place on a microwave-safe plate; microwave on High for 5 minutes. Flip the potatoes and microwave for another 5 minutes.Advertisement
Meanwhile, heat 3/4 cup milk in a small saucepan to a simmer over medium-high heat. Whisk the remaining 1/4 cup milk and flour in a small bowl until smooth. Add the flour mixture to the pan and whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Remove from heat. Reserve 2 tablespoons Cheddar. Stir the remaining Cheddar into the pan until blended and smooth. Stir in broccoli, salt and cayenne.
Cut the potatoes in half; gently mash the inside of each potato just until loose and crumbly. Layer 4 potato halves at a time in the basket of an air fryer. Top each with 1/4 cup of the broccoli mixture, then divide 1 tablespoon Cheddar among the potatoes.
Cook the potatoes at 350 degrees F until the cheese is melted and the potato skins are crispy, about 5 minutes. Repeat with the remaining potatoes, broccoli mixture and Cheddar.
Top the potatoes with chives, if desired, and serve.
