How To Make Air Fryer Maple Bourbon Candied Bacon
In a large and wide bowl, mix together the brown sugar, maple syrup, and bourbon. Mix well. Place the bacon into the dish and press the syrup on the bacon, both sides.
As you coat them, place them in your air fryer basket or tray. Set the tray or basket into your air fryer, set the temperature to 400 degrees F for 7-9 minutes. Let them cool, as they cool the sugars will harden.
- Spread out the bacon, so it’s flat in the air fryer. While we all love bacon and like to make it as possible, overcrowding the basket, usually ends with less-than-perfect results.
- The ideal temperature is between 390 degrees F to 400 degrees F. (air fryer setting) Depending on your air fryer!
- Add a couple of tablespoons of water to the bottom of the air fryer basket. This will prevent smoke that occurs when you are air frying bacon. (Only for basket models)
- Or add a piece of stale bread underneath the basket (in between the two baskets) but CHECK with your model manufacturer before doing so.
- At the halfway point, always flip the bacon, with a sturdy pair of tongs.
