"Ever have any leftover baked potatoes and not sure what to do with them ? Well, here's a way they can be used. And if you don't have any leftover baked potatoes, just nuke a couple in the microwave until fork tender.

I left the peel on and cut the baked potatoes into wedges and cooked them in my Actifry for 25 minutes using 1 tablespoon oil. Lovely simple and tasty recipe. Made for the Billboard Recipe Tag game.
