I’ll admit it. I have a weakness for bacon. Bacon makes almost everything better, am I right? Cooking bacon can get a bit messy, but I found cooking it in the air fryer alleviates that. It doesn’t splatter all over the stove and it takes less time to cook than it does in the oven. It’s also great for when you’re cooking a big weekend breakfast and have homemade buttermilk biscuits in the oven (or my skillet buttermilk biscuits) and more breakfast goodies going on the stove, but no room to cook those tasty strips of heaven. So who is ready for some bacon?
Here’s how to cook it in the air fryer:
Preheat air fryer at 350°
Place bacon in a single layer in the basket.
If the strips are too long you can cut it in half.
Cook for about 8 to 10 minutes depending on how crispy you like it.
Check after 2 minutes to make sure the bacon is still flat. The fan can sometimes blow the bacon a bit and if it does, just place them back in a single layer.
When the bacon is done, carefully remove with tongs and drain on paper towels if necessary.
If you need to cook the bacon in batches, drain out the bacon grease before cooking another batch.
Cooking times may vary depending on the size and the brand of your air fryer.
