I am certain that this recipe will taste amazing with other ingredients. Try substituting the bacon with sausage strips, or turkey bacon, or no bacon at all if you are looking for a vegan option.

You can add any tasty veggies to this recipe. I imagine that this would taste splendid with some caramelized onions and or bell peppers (you can also make this in the air fryer).

If you don’t have ripe avocados on hand, you might enjoy some guacamole or a creamy avocado spread.

You can use any cheese that you love; provolone, swiss cheese, cheddar jack or cheddar cheese are all great options. Not a fan of melty cheese? Don’t use it!

Instead of butter, you can use any oil of your choice and lightly spray the slices of bread with oil. I like avocado oil because it is flavorless.

If you are looking for the SparkNotes version for cooking bacon in the air fryer, here is the best way to do it:

  1. Place the bacon in the air fryer, it is okay if it is touching or overlapping.
