Did you jump on the air fryer trend a while back but maybe yours hasn’t seen the light of day recently? It’s time to take it out of the cabinet and dust it off. Besides making the crispiest French fries, chicken tenders and perfectly roasted vegetables, the air fryer is also a great tool to heat up leftovers and cook crispy bacon.

Yes, bacon lovers: if you haven’t yet cooked bacon in the air fryer, it’s time to give it a try!
