A New Way to Cook (& Dave’s Journey to Air Fryer Twice Baked Potatoes)
One thing about moving into the fifth wheel was learning how to cook our favorites. Everything/anything is truly possible with an instant pot and an air fryer. For those wondering, we also have a single burner and an electric skillet. I enjoy having options when cooking! That single burner is a life saver for boxed mac and cheese nights.
Shall I get back to the air fryer? As you can imagine, necessity has forced our hand a bit into getting creative. Dave can spend hours imagining a new recipe. Sometimes we win, sometimes we lose. This one was a HUGE win. Shockingly, on the first try! More often than not cravings come from me. I ask for specific dinners and Dave does his best to accommodate me. However, this one? This was alllllll him. I just got to go along for the ride, and boy was it delicious.
Add a ham steak and green beans to your Air Fryer Twice Baked Potatoes and you’ve got yourself an award winning dinner. Amazingly and shockingly, our family of 4 also had enough for leftovers.
