How Does An Air-Fryer Work?

Think of an air fryer as a miniature convection oven.

It cooks by continuously circulating hot air around the food, in this case, the fresh Brussels sprouts, allowing it to get crispy, without submerging in oil.

The small appliance makes food crispy in less time than traditional deep fryers.

Cooking times may vary from air fryer to air fryer.

Crispy Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts Tips:

Cooking times will definitely vary depending on the size of brussels sprouts.

For small to medium brussels sprouts, cut them in half.

If they’re larger, then cut them into thirds to ensure the best crispiness!

For extra flavor, you can try balsamic vinegar drizzled over crispy sprouts.

For cheesy Brussel sprouts, sprinkle warm Brussels sprouts with 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese.

Store any leftover Brussels sprouts in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days.

To make into a main meal:

While the air fryer is making crispy sprouts,

Place 1 piece of uncooked bacon in a frying pan over medium-high heat.

Allow cooking to desired crispiness.

Remove bacon when done.

In bacon grease, add one egg and allow to cook until the yolk is to desired preference.

Once you have your air-fried Brussels sprouts done, place them on a plate, crumble bacon over them and top with the fried egg.

Store any leftover Brussels sprouts in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two days.
