My mother-in-law got each family a Ninja Air Fryer for Christmas. Oh, my goodness is that appliance a dream. Oldest and I have put it through the paces in the last week. He has made French toast, French fries, and hamburgers in the fryer. I’ve made some sheet pan meals, bacon, and toast in it.
A goal of mine was to make perfect bacon in the air fryer. If you have an oven that has a convection setting, you can certainly use that feature.
You can certainly make a big batch of bacon as part of your meal prepping for the week.
What you need:
Pork Bacon – I’ve not attempted to use turkey bacon for this recipe.
What you can use the bacon for:
Sandwiches – Youngest and Hubby both have used the bacon for one of the meats on their sandwiches.
Just eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack.
Salads – BLT salad or Cobb salad

I’ve mentioned before that we were going on a quick road trip in mid July. The Imaginative One had a camp in Kent, Ohio. Then he was going to go to another camp in Michigan. Hubby and I decided to drive him from one camp to the other camp.
I’m all about easy veggie side dishes. We usually microwave the veggies for about 4 minutes, add a little bit of butter and salt, and then microwave for another minute to melt the butter.
That method gets old, though. So I came up with an easy skillet green bean recipe using onions and bacon. When my mother-in-law makes green beans for our Sunday dinner, she boils the bacon with the green beans. The Wee One wants to eat those bacon pieces. He can, but they don’t have the best flavor or texture. When I made this skillet green bean recipe, he could eat the bacon with his green beans. Win-win!
