  • 4 russet potatoes (scrubbed and dried)

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil (separated)

  • Salt & pepper to taste

  • 1 pound extra lean ground beef

  • 4 american cheese

  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

  • 1⁄2 cup fat free greek yogurt

  • 2 tablespoons sugar free ketchup

  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard

  • 1 teaspoon pickle juice (from jar)

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • Salt & pepper to taste

  • 1⁄2 white onion (minced)

  • 1⁄4 head iceberg lettuce (finely shredded)

  • 16 hamburger dill pickles


  • Cover potatoes in 1 tsp oil, season with salt and place in a 400°F for 30 minutes. Flip after 30 minutes and continue cooking for 10 more minutes. After 10 minutes, test for doneness. The knife should slide through with little resistance. If they are not done, continue cooking for 5 minutes at a time until cooked.
  • Remove from air fryer and allow to cool to the point that you can handle them.
  • In a large pan over medium heat, heat 1 tsp olive oil, then add in extra lean ground beef and season with salt and pepper. Cook until no longer pink and set aside.
  • Cut cooled potatoes in half and scoop out some of the inside. Leave slightly more than 1/4 inch of the insides. Repeat for all halves.
  • Return the potato halves, cut side up, into the 400°F air fryer for 2-3 minutes until the potato insides begins to firm up.
  • Remove from air fryer and fill each potato skin with 1/8th of the cook beef, 1/2 slice of american cheddar and a pinch of sesame seeds. Return to the air fryer for 1-2 minutes, until cheese starts to melt.
  • Cut in half and top with shredded lettuce, minced onion. Then drizzle with sauce, and top each 1/4 potato with 1 slice of pickle. Enjoy!
