Top Tips for Making Bacon in the AIr Fryer

Don’t Overcrowd: While it’s ok if the strips of bacon overlap each other slightly, it’s important that each strip has enough space to cook evenly so that it can crisp up nicely!Check Halfway: Halfway through cooking your strips of bacon, be sure to check them to make sure they aren’t overdone! Don’t Cook Too Hot: I recommend cooking your bacon at 350 degrees Fahrenheit as the bacon will cook best and crisp up nicely at this temperature!

What to Serve with Air Fryer Bacon

Now that you have cooked up your bacon in the easiest, least messy way possible, it’s time to DEVOUR it! I recommend serving up your salty, crispy bacon with some cod scrambled eggs or with your eggs cooked however you like them! To make your meal a little fancier, consider enjoying your bacon alongside a breakfast cauliflower pizza with eggs for a fun meal that is anything but boring! Enjoy!

Cook at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. 10 minutes yield nice and crispy, golden brown bacon. If you want it less crispy, cook less and more crispy, cook more. Also, if you have thick cut bacon you may need a few minutes longer.

I originally had this cook at 400 degrees but learned from Natashas Kitchen that lower is better!
