  • 4 strips turkey bacon (preferably sugar-free; I use this one)
  • eggs, fruit, etc. (optional items to complete the meal)


  • Put the turkey bacon in a single layer on an air fryer tray. I was able to fit 4 strips on a tray. If you have a smaller air fryer, you may need to cut the strips in half so they will fit.
  • If you have an air fryer oven, put the rack in the top position. Air fry for 10 minutes at 375°F (190°C), flipping halfway through cooking time. Feel free to add a few more minutes of cooking time if you prefer crispier bacon.
  • Serve your turkey bacon with eggs, fruit, or whatever you'd like!


This is a level 1 recipe (may help support fat loss). Turkey bacon is an ultra-processed food but it’s also a lean protein. It's not the best choice for those on low-sodium diets. However, turkey bacon can fit well in many low calorie and low carb meal plans. 
The packaging for the turkey bacon I purchased lists one piece of bacon as a serving. Realistically, I know most of us enjoy double or triple this amount (maybe more). The nutrition information below is for two strips of bacon. 
If you want a light but satisfying meal, I’d consider what your whole meal will look like. I like to have eggs (for more protein) and fruit (for fiber and volume) with bacon. Have berries for the fruit if you want a low carb meal. 
Instead of the fruit, you could make scrambled eggs or an omelet with lots of non-starchy veggies. Add the turkey bacon on the side for a protein-packed meal that should leave you full until lunch. 
Nutrition information is for two strips of Wellshire Farms Organic Uncured Turkey Bacon. Nutrition information will vary depending on the brand of turkey bacon you use.
