My husband LOVES Brussels sprouts and when I was recipe testing for my air fryer he just knew they would work well in one. Since we’re trying to eat healthier I knew it was a veggie he loved, so I tried this simple recipe.

Contents

The color should be bright green, without yellow or brown tipped edges. Buy sprouts of similar size, so they will cook in about the same amount of time.

Some outer leaves may fall off, but that will just give more crispy and varying textures to enjoy. I find using a mandolin is often much faster than using a knife if I have a lot of sprouts to cut.

After tossing the sprouts with the bacon and fat, spread them in an even layer on the bottom of the air fryer basket. This option would also work without bacon, but you would need to substitute 1 teaspoon of olive oil to coat the sprouts with to get them browned and crispy.

Other add-ins you might enjoy are red pepper slivers, onion pieces or diced shallots. You can cut them in half but you might want to parboil them for 5 minutes before air frying them, so they cook all the way through and don’t get dry and hard.

Completely dry them with a paper towel then proceed as the recipe states and you should be good to go! Substitute 1 teaspoon olive oil instead of the bacon fat to coat before cooking.

1 Pound Brussels Sprouts 3 strips Thick Cut Bacon Cut off the bottom of the sprout and peel off any damaged outer leaves.

Remove foil tray with bacon carefully to avoid being burned by hot oil. Open air fryer at about 7 minutes to shake the sprouts around so all sides can cook evenly.

Remove from air fryer when the sprouts are caramelized and crispy on the outside and the center are cooked through. My mandolin is ancient, but I've used the Ox one at a friend's home and it worked beautifully.

It also makes great french fries, julienne carrots and does many pretty vegetables in addition to slicing sprouts. As an Amazon Associate and member of other affiliate programs, I earn from qualifying purchases at no additional cost to you.

I wouldn't blame you if you wanted to just make regular old roasted brussels sprouts, but this air fryer recipe is so darn easy and there's a ton of BACON ! First step is to lay your bacon in a single layer in the air fryer.

Toss the trimmed brussels sprouts and par-cooked bacon in a large bowl and then transfer to the air fryer (photo 5). You can make this recipe for bacon and brussels sprouts at the beginning of the week as part of your meal prep.

I don't advise reheating them in the microwave as they will be softer and less crispy, however it doesn't change the taste. Plus, it's not always easy to bring the good of' air fryer into work when there's a microwave readily available.

You can also spread them on a baking sheet and reheat in a 400 degree F oven for a few minutes. Add the bacon to the air fryer basket and avoid overlapping as much as possible.

About the brussels sprouts : If you like them really crispy, pull the outer leaves off when you trim them but be sure to cook them up. About the air fryer : I find that they all cook a little differently depending on the size and shape of the fry basket.

Fire up your air fryer for perfectly crispy Brussels Sprouts topped with Dry Aged Cherry wood Smoked Bacon. Serve these as a side dish or a top with an egg for breakfast.

Bacon is like butter the way it makes everything taste AMAZING, plus with the crunch that the air fryer gives it, you just want to eat them over and over again. They are only available here in Portugal at one supermarket, and we have a 1-hour round up trip to buy them, so we don’t get them as often as we would like.

Plus they are transported from the UK and can often look a bit worse for wear by the time we buy them. When we make airfryerBrusselSprouts with bacon, they taste so good, but also taste so bad for you that you would assume that they had been cooked in a lot of fat and that you are going to put on half a stone if you eat them.

I was 16 at the time and there was free booze, loads of food and lots of love and laughter. My mum had got me this awful green skirt suit to wear, with white platform heels and I looked ridiculous.

Next time you are looking for that amazing side to be your star attraction then I highly recommend that you give airfryerBrusselSprouts with bacon a run for their money. Crispy pieces of bacon and no oil make this the vegetable side dish from heaven.

Remove the core and the outside skin of the Brussels Sprouts and place them into your Air Fryer. Remove all visible fat and place them in the Air Fryer when it beeps.

The final cooking process is done at 200c as it needs to be hotter for the bacon to be lovely and crispy. If you’re partly cooking the Brussels sprouts first in the Instant Pot, then drain them and then place them in the Hairdryer for 5 minutes with the bacon starting with point 2 of the recipe. Like when you are searing beef, its always important not to overcrowd the Brussels sprouts otherwise they won’t cook properly.

You can snack on yummy veggies like cauliflower, broccoli and Brussels spouts wrapped in bacon. The best lower carb veggies are brussels sprouts, broccoli, and cauliflower, because they can be easily trimmed to bite size pieces.

If you do, use my favorite mayonnaise from Better Body Foods which is so full of flavor and the healthier choice, made with avocado oil. I added a scant amount of sugar free ketchup.

It has the right amount of acid and zing that you’ll eat it with a spoon. I was hesitant at first to invest in one, so I bought the Color smaller version and it works just fine.

I like to dip the head of the veggie in a little olive oil and wrap 1/3 of a piece of bacon and close with a toothpick. You can prep up to this point and refrigerate until you’re ready to make and serve.

I was actually surprised how fast they cook in the air fryer and that the veggies were softened, but not mushy. Your sizes may be different from mine, so check at 5 minutes to see if it's time to turn over.

I made these Bacon Wrapped Hot Brussels Sprouts before the game started, and cooked them up for half time. They took less than half the time in the air fryer, but both methods were ready to eat in about 30 minutes.

The most common misconception is that people that don’t like spicy won’t be able to tolerate them because they will be too hot. I loved that bit of heat they gave off, coupled with that salty crisp bacon.

It really did add a whole other level of flavor to these already fantastic bacon wrapped hot Brussels sprouts ! Paisley Farm Brussels Sprouts are full of flavor and ready on demand.

We used the dill flavor in this Greek Cauliflower Rice Salad, and they were perfection! Open a jar, added some white cheddar cheese and some bread crumbs to the top.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Bacon is the best Whole30- and eco-friendly holiday vegetable side dish that you can make in the oven or air fryer ! This smoky roasted Brussels sprouts and bacon recipe is so danged easy to make and it’s been a fan favorite since the dish debuted on this blog way back in 2010.

For a long time, I couldn’t figure out why ; after all, Brussels sprouts aren’t exactly everyone’s favorite vegetable. It wasn’t until adulthood that I discovered that the mild, nutty bitterness of these bulbous sprouts blends beautifully with smoky pork.

It was the warm Brussels sprouts salad with bacon and eggs at the now-long-gone Gordon’s House of Fine Eats in San Francisco that first opened my eyes and ultimately inspired the Carolina Al Forgo recipe in my first cookbook. The air fryer browns the Brussels sprouts and bacon bits beautifully and the cooking time is cut in half.

Place half the seasoned Brussels sprouts and bacon in your air fryer basket. The dish is ready when the sprouts and bacon are nicely browned and there are crispy bits.

1½ pounds Brussels sprouts 2 tablespoons melted ghee avocado oil, extra virgin olive oil, or fat of choice Diamond Crystal kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper 4 bacon slices diced (choose sugar-free bacon if on a Whole30) 1 tablespoon Aged balsamic vinegar Cut the sprouts in half and toss them with melted fat of choice, salt, and pepper.
