Crispy Bacon

HEALTHIER CRISPIER BACON. IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS
Crispy Bacon
Mmmm Bacon. Got a craving for bacon and eggs, but sick of cooking the eggs in a pool of bacon fat, or for that matter, having fat drip from the bacon. By cooking it in the air fryer the fat will drip away, and leave you with a nice crispy bacon that will provide a healthier alternative. Why not cook your favourite bacon wrapped food in the air fryer as well, for a tastier and healthier meal.

Equipment

Ingredients

  • 4 Rashers Bacon

Instructions

Preparation

  • Preheat the air fryer to 200 ° C or 390 ° F which usually takes around 3 minutes.

Cooking

  • Place the bacon into the basket. If possible, keep the rashers separated. If this is impossible, then shake the basket more often.

Notes

Shaking the basket often will not only help remove the excess fat, but will also allow the bacon to cook evenly if any were overlapping. Pat dry the bacon after cooking with paper towel to remove the last bit of dripping fat.
TIP: Add some aluminim foil to the bottom of the bucket (not basket) to make cleaning easier.
  • Cook from defrosted
