Air Fried Omelette Loaded Potato

Prep: 60 min
Cook: 30 min
Total: 90 min

Ingredients for 4 servings

  • 1200g (about 4) small Russet potatoes, baked and about 150g of potato flesh removed from each one (see directions below)
  • EGGS
    • 10 whole eggs (or combination of 5 eggs + 6 egg whites)
    • 1 tablespoon The Fit Cook Everyday seasoning (OR 1 teaspoon garlic powder + 2 teaspoons onion powder)
    • 1 tablespoon The Fit Cook Green Chile Lime seasoning (OR 2 teaspoons cumin)
    • pinch of sea salt & pepper
    • 2 green onion stalks, diced
    • 1 cup (~90g)  reduced fat shredded Mexican blend cheese (or cheddar)
  • 1 cup chopped broccolini or broccoli,
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 4 pieces of center-cut bacon, chopped (OPTIONAL but recommended for flavor – this would not make it vegetarian)



Step 1

Set oven (or air fryer) to 420F/216C.

Step 2

Poke a few holes in each potato using a fork, then wrap each potato in foil.  Bake in the oven for 1 – 1.5 hours or until the potatoes have been cooked through and can easily be pierced with a fork. Once baked allow the potatoes to cool down  enough where they can be handled.

Step 3

Use a small knife to trim off the top portion of the potato as it lays on its side (note: do NOT cut the potato in half).  Then take a spoon and carve out the insides of each potato but leaving a thick border of potato alongside the inner walls of the potato.  This creates a potato bowl or cup.

Step 4

Set air fryer (or oven) to 400F/204C.

Step 5

Beat eggs together with seasoning, cheese and green onion.

Step 6

Spray each potato with olive oil, then sprinkle with pinch of sea salt & pepper.  Add about 1 tablespoon of broccoli, bell pepper and bacon to each one, then pour in the  egg mix.  Repeat for remaining potato  cups.

Step 7

Place the loaded potatoes in the air fryer basket and cook for 20 – 25 minutes, or until the egg is cooked through.  Pro-tip: for best results, gently cover each potato with aluminum foil –  create a  dome shape – then remove it the final minutes of cooking in order to brown the top.

Step 8

Enjoy with your favorite condiment, like hot sauce!
