Notes

What can I make with leftover bacon?
Bacon is practically a necessity in our home when it comes to breakfast. We always have leftovers so we make sure to sue it up in our frittatas, quiche Loraine, omelets, or even add it into our croissant breakfast sandwich. We also love to add it to our favorite breakfast burritos recipe (VIDEO).
How to reheat it
Place the cooked bacon back into the air fryer and cook for about 4 minutes at 360 degrees Fahrenheit.
