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


  • 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.


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.
