Air Fryer Bacon (Perfectly Crispy) Recipe

Air Fryer Bacon is a mess free and quick way to prepare the perfectly crispy bacon. Freshly made crispy bacon a must for your breakfast.

Air Fryer Bacon has changed my life. Making fresh bacon with no mess to clean, is music to my ears. There is no grease splattering or ruining your favorite shirt. That has happened to me many times.

We love the freshly made crispy bacon. The extra thick cut slices are our favorite. We used to only make it on rare occasions, because of the hassle. After getting an air fryer, our kids have a lot more of the freshly cooked bacon.

I wasn't sure which Air Fryer to get, so I got the most affordable one, Gourmia Digital Air Fryer. It's working great for me. I would recommend reading some reviews to see what would be the best fit for you.

How to Make Bacon in an Air Fryer

Place one layer of bacon in an Airfryer. Turn the heat to 390F and bake for 4 minutes, turn bacon and cook for another 4 minutes. Depending on the thickness of the bacon you might need to adjust cooking time.

If you're making several batches at the same time, you may need to drain some of the fat that collects in the bottom basket.
