  • Air fryer or oven
  • aluminum foil
  • paper towels


  • 4 pieces thick cut bacon, cut in half the meat department in my grocery sells bacon by the slice


  • Preheat air fryer or oven to 400 degrees.
  • Line your drip tray with foil.
  • Add bacon and cook for 7 - 10 minutes depending on how crisp you like it.
  • Allow bacon to cool on a paper towel.


All air fryers cook at different speeds.  These recipes are meant to be a general guide.  Cooking times depend on various factors including thickness, cut, and type of meat used.  I use an Instant Pot Vortex Plus shelf air fryer.  If you're using something different, especially a bucket type air fryer, I advise keeping an eye on food so it doesn't under, or overcook.
