  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1⁄4 cup chopped onion
  • 1⁄2 medium green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 6 large eggs
  • 12 slices sugar-free bacon
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup mild salsa, for dipping

    Directions:

    1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add onion and pepper to the skillet and sauté until fragrant and onions are translucent, about 3 minutes.
    2. Whisk eggs in a small bowl and pour into skillet. Scramble eggs with onions and peppers until fluffy and fully cooked, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
    3. On work surface, place three slices of bacon side by side, overlapping about a quarter of an inch. Place 1 ⁄4 cup scrambled eggs in a heap on the side closest to you and sprinkle 1⁄4 cup cheese on top of the eggs.
    4. Tightly roll the bacon around the eggs and secure the seam with a toothpick if necessary. Place each roll into the air fryer basket.
    5. Adjust the temperature to 350°F and set the timer for 15 minutes. Rotate the rolls halfway through the cooking time.
    6. Bacon will be brown and crispy when completely cooked. Serve immediately with salsa for dipping.
