Ingredients

  • 6 rashers streaky bacon, or 3 rashers back bacon

Method

  • STEP 1

    Lay the bacon in a single layer in the base of an air fryer – be sure the layers aren't overlapping. The size of the air fryer basket will determine how many rashers you can cook at one time.

  • STEP 2

    Set the air fryer to 200C and cook streaky bacon rashers for 6-10 mins – just-cooked bacon will take 6 mins, but crispier bacon will take 9-10 mins. Cook back bacon rashers for 4-8 mins, depending on your preference. If you are cooking in batches, remember that the second batch will usually be quicker as the air fryer has heated up.

  • STEP 3

    Remove the bacon using tongs and put on kitchen paper to drain before serving.
