  • Air fryer


  • 5 Bacon slices
  • Black pepper optional
  • Paprika optional


  • Line up bacon slices in the air fryer basket in a single layer.
    You may slice bacon in half if needed. Add black pepper/paprika (optional).
  • Air fry bacon for 8-10 minutes at 350oF/ 175C.
    Cooking time will vary based on the thickness of the bacon slices. Check bacon after 5 minutes.
  • Use tongs to remove bacon slices and place them on a paper towel-lined plate.
  • Empty the pan of grease and repeat steps with the remaining batches.
    Serve and Enjoy!


  • Cook bacon at 350oF / 175C to avoid smoking.
  • Air Fryer brands vary as well as temperature setting, air fry at less than 400F to avoid smoking.
  • Arrange bacon slices in a single layer, do not overcrowd the basket. Overcrowding will cause uneven cooking.
  • Cut bacon in half to fit more bacon in the basket.
  • Remove the grease from the pan after each batch to avoid smoking. My sister adds a piece of bread to the pan to absorb the grease from the bacon.
  • Thinner bacon slices may take less time to cook.
  • Black pepper or Paprika is optional. If you like crispy bacon without the extra kick, do not use it.
  • Cooking time may vary slightly based on the air fryer model; basket style or toaster over style so check on it after the first 5 minutes.
