  • 6 slices Bacon I used uncured


  • Line the air fryer basket with parchment paper. Parchment paper will soak up the grease and prevent the air fryer from smoking. Place the bacon on top of the paper. It's ok for the bacon to touch. I do not recommend stacking the bacon.
  • Some air fryer brands may need a trivet placed on top of the bacon. If you have an air fryer that is older or is very loud, you may need a trivet to hold the bacon down. I did not need this while using a Power Air Fryer.
  • Cook the bacon for 10 minutes on 380 degrees. I did not flip the bacon. Cook for additional time as necessary in order to reach your desired level of crunch.
