Origin of the Recipe

This recipe and technique was first shared by Abby from @houseofketo on Tiktok. I love Air Fryer Bacon so that’s my preferred way to make it, but I include the conventional oven baked instructions as well.

The Best Bacon to Use

Any bacon will work for this recipe you can even use turkey bacon if that’s what you prefer. Thick cut bacon is great in terms of texture once it’s cooked, but it is a little harder to twirl and twist.

How to Twist the Bacon

Grab a slice of bacon and start twirling it with both sets of hands/fingers. If you twist the bacon really tight it will result in crispy bacon. If you want chewy bacon, twist the bacon loosely.

How to Season the Bacon

Bacon has a lot of flavor on its own, but you can also add any of these to take things up a notch:

How to Make Twisted Bacon

Detailed measurements and full instructions can be found in the recipe card at the bottom of this post.

How to Store

Cooked bacon can be stored in the fridge tightly covered and sealed for 3-4 days.

How to Reheat

Reheat the bacon in the air fryer or in the oven at 350 degrees until warm.

Freezer Tips

These are perfect for freezing in advance, especially for meal prep. You can freeze these tightly covered and sealed for 4-6 months. Defrost overnight in the fridge.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound uncooked bacon
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon Everything But the Bagel Seasoning Adjust to taste

Instructions

  • Twist and twirl each slice of bacon in your hands. For crispy bacon, twirl the bacon really tight. For chewy bacon, twirl the bacon loosely.

Oven Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • Place the twisted bacon on the parchment paper. Bake for 40 minutes for crispy bacon. Bake for less time if you prefer chewy bacon.
  • Remove from the oven and allow the bacon to rest on paper towels.

Air Fryer Instructions

  • Line the air fryer basket with air fryer parchment paper. This helps soak up a lot of the grease from the bacon. It must be air fryer parchment paper.
  • Add the bacon and air fry on 370 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until crisp. Mine took 12 minutes.
  • Bacon will usually curl and shrink while air frying. To preserve most of the shape, I like to cover the bacon using a trivet while it air fries.
  • Remove from the air fryer and allow the bacon to rest on paper towels.

Notes

You may have to flip the bacon halfway through if you like it crisp on both sides, especially if baking.
Feel free to use any of your favorite spices and seasoning on the bacon or no spices at all.
If using parchment paper and the air fryer, you need to use air fryer parchment paper. Regular parchment paper should never be used in the air fryer.
