  • 1 Air Fryer

  • Place bacon slices in a shallow dish with brown sugar. Toss bacon slices well so both sides are coated with brown sugar.
  • Place slices in the air fryer basket, working in batches so they don’t overlap while air frying.

Top Tips:

No matter if you call this millionaire bacon or billionaire bacon, everyone will agree that this pig candy is yummy! I like to use dark brown sugar for this recipe as it makes it a delicious treat.

Cooking the bacon in the air fryer is also a great way to keep the bacon grease separate from the bacon, as it will fall through the bottom of the air fryer basket.

But did you know that you can actually use that leftover bacon grease for other air fryer recipes and cooking recipes? I’ll save it and store it in a jar and then use it for cooking at other times. (It’s really good to use when you’re popping popcorn!)
