Be sure to check your bacon every 2-3 minutes to ensure bacon doesn't need to be rearranged. If it does (or is rolling up on itself), rearrange bacon using silicon-tipped tongs. To safely check bacon, be sure to PAUSE cooking on your air fryer before removing the basket.


  • 3 strips bacon


Using kitchen shears, cut bacon strips in half.

Place bacon in air fryer basket, making sure the pieces don't touch.

Set air fryer to 350 degrees.

Cook for 8-12 minutes, until desired doneness. (We did ours for 10.)
