Today’s not even a recipe…just another idea!
You guys know that I am in love with the airfryer these days. What used to just be “Andrew’s gadget” is now a staple in our house. It just makes everything easier. From baked potatoes to veggies, plain ole chicken breasts and so much more, it’s just easy to use, easy to clean up and easy to operate (there isn’t a learning curve with this one like there is some other small appliances..cough, cough, the Instant Pot…).
Lately, we’ve been making a lot of bacon (both pork and turkey) in there because you can just pile it on in, shut the door, turn it to 375ish and about 15 minutes, you have mess-free bacon ready to eat. This last Sunday morning, I made some Sweet & Spicy Airfryer Bacon and you should too. It was so delicious with our eggs and reminded me a little of…
If you don’t have an Air Fryer, I listed an oven alternative in the little recipe. Easy as that!Print
A little sweet, a little spicy and a whole lot of easy when you use the airfryer! There are no specific measurements on here because you get to determine the amount of heat you have on each piece.
- 1 pound of bacon (turkey or pork, we used pork)
- honey to drizzle
- ground cinnamon
- cayenne pepper
- Spray the basket of your airfryer lightly with non-stick spray.
- On a plate, take each piece of bacon and lay it out flat. Next, take your honey and squeeze just a bit down over each piece (both front and back). I spread a little bit on and then use a butter knife to smooth it on top.
- After you have added your honey, it’s time to sprinkle on your cinnamon and cayenne pepper down over each piece both front and back (as much or as little as you like). I like mine with a pretty big kick, but for my kids, we used only the tiniest bit.
- Once your bacon is seasoned, add it all to the basket of the airfryer. I don’t mind if my pieces overlap a bit in the airfryer.
- Close the airfryer up, put the temperature at 375 degrees and let it crisp about 12 minutes.
- Remove from airfryer and enjoy!
If you don’t have an airfryer, you can make this in the oven too! Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. I like to place a cooling rack (the kind you use for cookies) on a baking sheet and then spray it with Pam for my bacon to sit on (instead of sitting right on the baking sheet). Prepare bacon as directed above and then pop in the oven for about 20 minutes (checking periodically). That’s it!
