Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Peaches –Peaches wrapped in bacon are a tasty, sweet treat that is easy to make. The best thing about this dessert is that you can make it with ingredients you probably already have at home! They are delicious! And the special sauce on top creates this incredible dessert, and you will be drooling over it!
Here’s the recipe for Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Peaches that you can make with your kids! It’s a great way to get them into the kitchen and learn about cooking.
This is also a very easy dish to make, so there isn’t much work involved. That means it’s perfect for those busy summer days when you don’t have time or energy left to cook after chasing around all day long with the kids!
The only thing I suggest is making sure you buy thick-cut bacon as it will hold up better around the peach slices than regular sliced bacon would. Also, if using canned peaches, be sure they’re in juice, not syrup, as that will affect how well this cooks up.
Ingredients Needed For Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Peaches
- Peaches, Fresh or Canned
- Fresh Basil
- Olive Oil
- Balsamic Glaze
How To Make Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Peaches
If you use canned peaches, drain the peaches; otherwise, peel and cut your fresh peaches into quarters.
Place a basil leaf on top of the peach, and then wrap the bacon tightly around the peach and basil leaf. As you wrap them, place them into the air fryer basket. If you have to use a toothpick to secure the bacon to the peach, add them. (Make sure they have been soaked for about 10 minutes to prevent burning)
Spray your air fryer basket with cooking spray, and then place your bacon-wrapped peaches into the basket. Use a pastry brush and brush with olive oil. Set the temperature to 370 degrees F and set the air fryer for 10 to 12 minutes.
Remove when the bacon is crispy.
Use Ripe Peaches: You can’t go to the farmer’s market or grocery store without buying some perfect peaches. I’ve found that these are usually rock-hard and either way too mushy, so if you want your bacon-wrapped peaches, buy them a few days ahead!
You’ll have soft fruit in just enough time for cooking with it when they’re ready at home on their counter after ripening.
Use Regular Bacon: This is an excellent recipe for bacon; depending on your air fryer and how thick your bacon is, the cooking time will vary. This is a great time to use flavored bacon, such as maple or glazed.
Serve Them Hot: Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Bacon is best hot from the air fryer when they’re juicy and tender.
How To Serve:
I love serving these bacon-wrapped peaches topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and Air Fryer Toasted and Roasted Walnuts.
This is an excellent combination of the salt from the bacon and the creaminess of the vanilla ice cream! It’s a great summertime or winter treat!
My kids loved serving this to their friends at our game-day celebration!
How To Store:
When you’re done air frying your bacon-wrapped peaches, don’t just throw them away! Place them into an airtight container. They will last for about 2 to 4 days.
There are so many things you can do with leftover peaches. You can use it as a topping for ice cream or yogurt, dice them up and put it on top of the cheesecake, eat it alone as a delicious snack, or even mix it into pancake batter to create an extra special breakfast.
How To Reheat:
You can quickly reheat these in the air fryer to recipe them. I like to spray some olive oil on top of them and then reheat them, at 350 degrees F, air fryer, until crispy.
