  • 3 rashers bacon
  • olive oil spray


  1. Give the air fryer basket a quick spray with oil to help prevent the bacon from sticking.
  2. Place bacon in air fryer basket in a single layer.
  3. Air fry the bacon at 350°F (180°C) for 10 minutes.
  4. If crisper bacon is required, cook for additional 1-2 minutes as needed.
