We actually like to use this recipe if we are doing a small-scale holiday dinner, but even just a nice family dinner this works as a great side dish too.
Tips for Making Air Fryer Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes:
It’s best to use medium-large sweet potatoes for this, remember that you will be baking them first which takes just over 30 minutes, and then cooking them again.
These potatoes do not need to be soaked before cooking, but you do want to wash them well and then rub them with a bit of oil before cooking.
This will help make the skin crispy.
Remember to give them space in the basket around them so that air will circulate evenly around the potatoes. We usually fit about 3-4 halves in our Ninja Air Fryer.
Once they are baked, you will scoop out the inside and mix them up with a butter and brown sugar mixture and then add them back into the potatoes.
It reminds me of an individual version of sweet potato casserole.
We love to top these with marshmallows, cinnamon, and pecans. It’s the perfect sweet and savory side dish.
Can these be made in a Ninja Foodi?
These can be made in the Ninja Foodi using the Air Crisp function.
The steps and method will be exactly the same just using Air Crisp to make Ninja Foodi Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes.

Help….what does this statement mean? “Top each potato skin with the potato mixture evenly, 1/4 of the mixture in each potato.”
Does this mean when I finish I will have only ONE HALF POTATO to serve to each person? 1/2 of the mixture in each potato seems right to me….let me know if I am wrong.
You will use 2 whole potatoes and cut them in half, so you end up with 4. (1/2 a potato each) Then, you will put 1/4 of the mixture into those 4 that you have. If you put 1/2 into each you won’t have enough for all the halves. One serving is 1/2 the potato.
