How to cook bacon in the air fryer?
In short, to cook bacon in the air fryer, use the air fryer to keep the bacon warm while you cook it.
That way, you won't have to worry about the bacon getting cold, and you won't have to use a plate to cover the bacon in the air fryer.
How to cook bacon in the air fryer? It's easier than you think. I love bacon. I'll eat it plain, I'll add it to all sorts of things, and I'll make bacon burgers, bacon ice cream, and bacon macaroni and cheese. It just goes with everything.
The other day, I made bacon popcorn. I was so excited that I had never seen anyone make bacon popcorn before. It's kind of a thing that you only see on TV, so I thought I'd share my recipe.
The first time I tried to make bacon popcorn, I was kind of nervous. It turns out bacon popcorn is a lot harder than it looks. The bacon and the cornmeal don't cook in the same time. And, well, I think I could have done better.
So, the next time I made bacon popcorn, I made a few adjustments. I used a different cornmeal, I pre-cooked the bacon and the popcorn, and I started my air fryer preheated. And guess what? It was a hit.
I'm going to go over my recipe for bacon popcorn, along with a few other recipes I've created. This post will show you how to cook bacon in the air fryer, and then I'll tell you how to make bacon popcorn.
I use a convection air fryer, but this method will work with other air fryers as well. So, what you'll need is: a air fryer. A cutting board. A bowl. A non-stick baking sheet. A stovetop. A spoon. A microwave. That's it! No more complicated cooking in the oven. Just toss everything together and you're good to go. You'll also need to set your air fryer to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
The first thing I want to do is start preheating the air fryer. And this is important: I want the air fryer to be at 350 degrees Fahrenheit before I start to cook the bacon. I have found that if I start preheating the air fryer at a lower temperature, it takes longer for the bacon to cook. That's not good.
When you start your air fryer, make sure you preheat the heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. And then, put the air fryer's lid down.
Now, that's all done. The air fryer is ready to go. It's time to cook the bacon. The easiest way to do that is in batches. And, again, I want the air fryer to be at 350 degrees Fahrenheit before I cook the bacon.
I have a cutting board that is a little on the narrow side. I use that to cut up my bacon. Then, I lay the pieces of bacon on a baking sheet and put the sheet in the air fryer. I lay the bacon down so that it's flat on the baking sheet. And I cook it for about four minutes.
Once the bacon has been in the air fryer for four minutes, I pull it out and lay it on the cutting board. And, if it's not too hot, I'll start to cut it up.
The next step is to remove the bacon from the air fryer. The easiest way to do that is to open the door of the air fryer. You don't want to open the door too much, because then the bacon will get hot, and the bacon is already hot when you put it in the air fryer.
So, you're probably wondering what to do with the bacon after you've removed it from the air fryer. You can serve it with something, or you can save it for later. To save it for later, just place it on a plate and refrigerate it.
When you're ready to eat, just take the bacon out of the refrigerator. And then, put it on your plate. I have a serving spoon that I use to mix up my bacon. You could use a fork as well.
And, now, you can eat your bacon. It doesn't have to be refrigerated before it's served. Just eat it like any other dish.
Cooking bacon in the air fryer is easy, and it's super fast. I'll go over a few other things as well. But first, I want to mention one other thing that you're going to want to do if you're going to make bacon popcorn.
When you cook bacon in the air fryer, you're going to have a lot of grease on the bottom of the air fryer.
