Bacon is nectar from heaven. God really blessed us when He enlightened whoever discovered bacon. Air Fryer Bacon is just one more way to make it. Sometimes you just need to make a few pieces or your oven is busy so you gotta make a family size portion in your Air Fryer so you can do other things while it cooks. A mama’s work is never done.Yes and amen.

First, get thick cut bacon. Thick cut bacon is amazing on so many levels. It has loads of bacon goodness and salt. Try it one time and you will never go back. Now I don’t get thick cut every time but I do get it often.

Place your bacon in the Air Fryer in a single layer. Cook 8 to 10 minutes flipping halfway. The time needed to cook depends on how crispy you like your bacon. I like my bacon sort of crispy but Mr. Stewart likes his bacon super crispy. The great part is you control how crispy it is!

Is Air Fryer bacon healthier?

Cooking anything in the Air Fryer rather than in on the stove in its own grease makes it a bit healthier. I’m not gonna try to convince you that bacon in the Air Fryer is the healthiest thing you can eat. But you won’t need to blot the bacon on a paper towel like you do when you fry it on the stove or in the oven.
