If you’re a bacon lover, you’re probably thinking that there is no better way to prepare your favorite salty meat than the traditional way. But once you try these bacon twists, you’ll never want to cook bacon any other way! With the help of your air fryer, you can prepare this easy viral recipe in three different flavors, making it perfect for a quick snack or a last-minute party!
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 16 slices of bacon
- 1 lb bacon
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Divide the bacon slices into however many slices you want per flavor. I did half brown sugar, 1/4 pepper, and 1/4 cayenne pepper.
To twist the bacon lay one strip of bacon stretched across a pan or plate. Sprinkle the strip with your seasoning of choice and rub the seasoning into the bacon so it sticks. Holding one end of the bacon strip in place, twist the strip until it becomes a tight twist. Note: Keep the sweet bacon separate from the spicy
Place each twisted strip of bacon in your air fryer basket and cook at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes. After the cook time is up, check the crispiness of your bacon and continue cooking if you prefer your bacon to be crispier. Continue cooking the bacon in batches until all the twists have been cooked.
Allow the bacon to cool for a few minutes before serving.
