How to cook bacon in Air fryer

This is the easiest way to cook bacon i found so far. No mess, no splashing fat- just perfect crispy bacon each time. Here is another recipe i tries with bacon- Air fryer bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers

  • To achieve desired crispiness, check on your bacon couple times during the cooking process. You know , some people like it more crisp, some less.
  • I chose thin cut of bacon. For a thick cut i would expand cooking time by 1 minute
  • Place bacon into already preheated air fryer basket, 375 degrees
  • 8 minutes usually enough for me, but keep an eye on it!

How to prevent air fryer from smoking

Smoke coming from air fryer is the i=oil or fat, that dripped from the dish and started to burn.

If your air fryer started to smoke, what to do to prevent it next time? Add some water on the bottom of the air fryer basket. Not too much, otherwise it may pour out through the holes of the basket.
