I love using my airfryer to cook bacon. A few years ago, I made a BBQ bacon with a recipe from Gordon Ramsey. On a quest to come up with delicious and appetizers, I thought I’d cook Aspargus wrapped in bacon in the airfryer. I was optimistic that airfryer asparagus would be a success. I wasn’t wrong.
I made this using the Power Airfryer Pro XL that was sent to me for the purpose of this recipe. Keep reading after the recipe to learn about this versatile airfryer and how you can win one too!
