NOTES

  1. Recipe serves 8 and can easily be halved.
  2. Use cold bacon. It’s easier to cut cold bacon without stretching and distorting the shape.
  3. No need to preheat the air fryer. However start checking the second batch at 12 mins
  4. Do not overcrowd your basket. Cook in batches if needed. I use a 5.8qt air fryer 16 fits in mine at a time. Put whatever amount that will fit in yours without overcrowding the basket.
