1. Easy Air Fryer Bacon

Air fryers are great for cooking bacon because they evenly cook the bacon and prevent it from sticking to the pan. They also make it easy to cook different kinds of bacon in large batches just like jowl bacon, which is perfect for entertaining. 

Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the bacon in the air fryer in a single layer. Cook the bacon for 8-10 minutes, or until it is crispy. 

Use tongs to remove the bacon from the air fryer and place it on a paper towel-lined plate to absorb any excess grease.

2. Cooking Bacon In The Oven

Bacon is delicious and versatile, and there are many ways to cook it. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. 

Then place the bacon strips on the baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool on a paper towel-lined plate.

3. Frying Bacon On The Stovetop

There are a few things that you need to keep in mind when you are frying bacon on the stovetop. First, you need to make sure that you have a good quality frying pan.

A good quality frying pan will help to make sure that your bacon cooks evenly. Second, you need to make sure that you do not overcrowd the pan. When you overcrowd the pan, the bacon will not cook evenly.

Lastly, you need to make sure that you cook the bacon on medium heat. If you cook the bacon on high heat, it will cause the bacon to shrink and will also make it harder to cook evenly.

4. Cook Bacon Using a Microwave

Microwaving bacon is a healthy way to cook bacon. Microwaving bacon allows you to cook bacon without adding any fat or oil. This means that you can cook bacon without adding any unhealthy fats or cholesterol.

To cook bacon in a microwave, simply place the bacon on a paper towel or microwave-safe plate and microwave on high for 1-2 minutes per strip of bacon.
