Make Extra Crispy Bacon in the Air Fryer

We love bacon at our house. Besides the fact that my family loves it, when I followed the Keto diet, I developed a real love for this crispy treat.

Bacon is a staple, but I hated the mess it made when frying it on the stove top.

I often cook bacon on a cookie sheet in the oven, but the air fryer is another great option especially if you just want to make a few slices or if you don’t want to heat up the kitchen with a hot stove.


Weight Watchers Points for Bacon – Freestyle Smart Points

As someone who has used the Weight Watchers points system for years, I used to shy away from eating bacon but it really is doable to eat bacon as part of a meal on a fairly regular basis, and there’s so much satisfaction that it’s one of those foods I find to be worth it.

Some WW members prefer turkey bacon (typically 1 point per slice) since it’s lower in points, but I personally would rather splurge on the real deal.

Can I use aluminum foil in the Air Fryer?

Yes, you can use baking paper or aluminum foil in your Philips Air Fryer. But you should never cover the basket bottom completely.

What can you cook in Air Fryers?

 You can cook most foods in an air fryer. Using less than a tablespoon of oil or a couple of sprays of canola cooking spray, you can fry beef, chicken, fish, frozen food, vegetables and even some desserts.

Are Air Fryers safe?

Air fryers can help promote weight loss and are safer than deep-fried foods. Since Air Fryers require a fraction of the oil that deep fryers need, people can have a more healthful meal that has similar flavors and textures. This is desirable since lowering oil intake can be hugely beneficial for a person’s health.

Is the Air Fryer healthier than an oven?

They can be! In fact, most people reduce their calorie intake by 70 to 80 percent, on average, when using air fryers. Air fryers are also time-efficient. You can bake a chicken breast faster in an air fryer than you can in your oven, and clean-up is typically easier.

Gather your ingredients. BACON!!

Evenly layer the bacon strips.

Bake in the Air Fryer. Delicious!
