Cooking bacon in the oven is not as simple. I have been covering it lately with parchment paper, but then it takes about 20-25 minutes to get crispy. Air fryers are a miraculous way to cook and enjoy your breakfast favorites! The trick for fitting more bacon in your air fryer is to cut the strips in half, widthwise. This also helps the bacon cook quicker than when cooking on an open flame stovetop or covered skillet because they don’t spatter all over my kitchen like before!
A question I always had was, can you cook bacon in an air fryer?
It turns out that not only is it possible to do so but the results are better than cooking on a stovetop or even using your oven. The best part about this method is how fast and crispy the bacon becomes!

Follow these steps:
For the perfect bacon, preheat your air fryer to 360 degrees Fahrenheit. Your food will cook much faster and more efficiently this way!
Place your bacon strips in the air fryer basket with care. Ensure that they do not overlap, or you will run into problems like poor crisping and limited circulation of hot air throughout the chamber.
Put bacon in a fryer basket and place it over high heat. Make sure that the fat renders into liquid before you take out your delicious, crispy breakfast treat! Cook until golden brown or to desired crispiness level for six-eight minutes — don’t forget to check after six minutes so you can adjust cooking time as needed!
You will need a clean paper towel and tongs to remove the bacon from your air fryer. This is an important step as you don’t want any grease left on this tasty treat!
