Air Fryer Bacon Wrapped Zucchini Fries (or wedges)

Ohhh, wait till you make these air fryer bacon wrapped zucchini fries! The whole test kitchen couldn’t stop eating them. In fact, we had to make a triple batch because they were THAT good. These strips of amazing crispy zucchini are a fantastic side dish and a fantastic as an appetizer too. The crispy salty outside of the bacon combined with the fresh bite of crisp zucchini is amazing. It’s such a great combination of flavors and textures. When Summer gives you tons of zucchini or summer squash, these delicious bites are perfect to share. We love crispy bacon, so we like cooking these a little longer. The zucchini still will be tasty because zucchini has so much moisture in it already. The little extra cooking time will just make the bacon taste better!
