I love to make bacon in the air fryer because it is so simple and hands free! First, rip up a slice of bread and place it at the bottom of the air fryer basket. This helps absorb the excess grease so that the air fryer won’t start smoking.

Next, place the bacon in the air fryer basket, it is okay if they slightly overlap. Cook the bacon at 350˚F/177˚C for about 10 minutes, or until bacon reaches desired crispiness.

How to Make a Breakfast Bomb

Breakfast bombs are so easy to assemble and make. Remove a biscuit from the container and cut it in half. With half of the biscuit, form a little bowl and add a tablespoon or so of the bacon and egg mixture.

Next, top with shredded cheese and any other breakfast toppings. Then, take the other half of the biscuit and place it on top of the bowl. Pinch the seams together to close the breakfast bomb. Repeat this for the remaining amount of biscuits.

Once the breakfast bombs are assembled. Place a piece of parchment paper in the air fryer basket and lightly spray the top. Next, place each breakfast bomb inside the air fryer basket and lightly brush with some egg wash.

Finally, cook at 320°F/160°C for 8 minutes. Flip the bombs, and cook for an additional 2-4 minutes, or until the tops are fully cooked and golden brown.

Final Thoughts

I love to prepare the contents of the breakfast bombs ahead of time. My kids love this air fryer breakfast recipe because they can easily make them! Mix things up and try other tasty ingredients such as sausage, ham, bell peppers, or spinach!
