Reheating leftover turkey bacon in air fryer

Reheating the leftovers is simple and I would follow the same instructions but with less time. Because the bacon has already cooked it will burn if you use the same 4 minutes per each side. I suggest starting with 2 minutes each side or until the turkey bacon is heated through. The bacon should remain crispy as well.
