So you might have guessed that I’m somewhat obsessed with my new air fryer (Ninja Foodi Dual Zone 7.6L Air Fryer AF3) and love making new and yummy recipes in it! This air fryer loaded fries recipe is one of my favourite creations, they’re covered in yummy goodness and I just can’t get enough of them.

If you’re looking for air fryer side dishes this is the one you want. It’s a firm family favourite and every time I visit home I’m requested to make them. These air fryer loaded bacon and cheese fries aren’t exactly the healthiest of my air fryer recipes but it’s one of the yummiest.

I like to keep my recipes a bit more on the simple side so you don’t have to worry about loads of ingredients in the mix and you only have to top the air-fryer loaded cheese fries with spring onions if you really want to, I think it gives it a little more flavour and makes it look nicer though.

Air-Fried Loaded Fries Recipe

I love using my air fryer, I can just put it on and get on with other things that I have to do. I would also love to point out that the air fryer is a lot more efficient and energy saving so you don’t have to worry about keeping the lights on while you cook.

With these cheese and bacon loaded fries you’ll have to air fry the chips first and I’d suggest getting smaller or slim chips so that they cook faster. Just make sure you cook the bacon first before you add it to the cheese because the cheese won’t take long to melt. I know people who haven’t cooked the bacon first and then they’re left with either burnt chips or raw bacon, not nice!
