The Best Air Fryer Bacon Recipe


  • 11 slices bacon (I am using Trader Joe’s, and it is a thick cut)


Divide the bacon in half, and place the first half in the air fryer.

Set the temperature at 400 degrees, and set the timer to 10 minutes (possibly less time for thinner bacon).

Check it halfway through to see if anything needs to be rearranged (tongs are helpful!).

Cook remainder of the time. Check for desired doneness. I like mine extra crispy so I did about 1.5 minutes extra for a total of 11.5 minutes, and mine was perfect.
