- 3 Russet potatoes or Yukon Gold

Use a mandolin to carefully slice the potatoes to a ⅛” thickness.
Rinse, and drain the potatoes.
Combine the queso cheese, cream cheese, and butter in a small pan and heat on medium/low heat.
Heat cheese and butter on the stovetop until they are melted and combined.
Add the baking dish to the air fryer basket.
Add a layer of sliced potatoes to the bottom of your shallow cooking dish.
Top with ⅓ of the cheese and butter mixture.
Add another layer of potatoes, and top with cheese until you’ve finished layering your dish.
Air fry scalloped potatoes at 320 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-18 minutes, or until the tops of the potatoes and cheese are golden brown.
Allow the dish to cool for a few minutes before serving.
Use sweet potatoes or Yukon Gold- If you want to change up this potato bake, you can make air fryer potatoes using sweet potatoes or Yukon Gold.
Add toppings – If you have leftover ham, that can be a great addition to the first layer of potatoes. You can also add sour cream and even chop up thick slices of bacon and sprinkle them on top, too.
