Quorn Pieces BBQ Loaded Air Fryer Jacket Potatoes

Jacket potato with Quorn Pieces in a BBQ sauce, with a salad on the side

These loaded air fryer jacket potatoes are much quicker than your standard oven cooked baked potato!

A sweet & spicy BBQ Quorn Pieces topping served over a crispy skin potato with a deliciously fluffy centre is a quick & easy meal for lunch or dinner times. Using an air fryer is also much more energy-efficient than using the traditional oven bake method.

  • ½ cucumber

  • 2 sticks celery


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 200 degrees C.
  2. Pierce your potatoes with a knife all over then coat with 1 tsp olive oil, season with salt and pepper then place in your air fryer for 30-45 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
  3. Coat the Quorn Pieces in the paprika, oregano, cayenne pepper, garlic granules, balsamic vinegar and remaining olive oil, season with salt and pepper to taste, then put in an oven proof dish and cook in the air fryer for 8-10 minutes, stirring halfway, making sure it is piping hot throughout. Once cooked, coat in the BBQ sauce, making sure it is evenly coated.

  6. Serve the jackets loaded with the BBQ Quorn pieces, a dollop of sour cream sprinkled with finely cut chives and the fresh green salad on the side.

Chefs tip

30 minutes cooking time may need to increase based on the size of your air fryer, so increase as needed. You can also part cook your potato in the microwave and finish off in the Air Fryer to crisp if you prefer.
