This recipe is based of using the COSORI Air Fryer (5.8QT model, affiliate link).
I’ve been oven baking my bacon for as long as I can recall. Compard to pan frying there’s less mess, less grease and more crisp. Air fried bacon takes that a step forward.
Unlike oven baking where the bacon rests in the rendered bacon fat while cooking – in the air fryer, the fat falls away to the pan below. As it’s not sitting in all that fat while cooking it crisps up much faster than the oven, and I’d wage the result is more healthy too!
The above recipe results in very crisp bacon with a dry finish. If you want a slightly less extremely crisp result, aim for 5-6 minutes cooking time. As ever, always check your food’s temperature for digging in. Bar S recommend a temp of 165F for their bacon slices.
