I professed my love for my air fryer on my last blog post, so it should be no surprise that I am back with a new recipe also featuring my air fryer! Since purchasing my air fryer, I have stuck with chicken and potatoes for the most part.  This weekend, I decided to throw in some brussels sprouts to basically “roast” them.  It was a simple process that I thought was worth sharing with you all so here is my Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts recipe.

Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts

Course Side Dish
Prep Time 15 minutes
Air Fryer Cook Time 10 minutes
Servings 4


  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 2 Slices Bacon Uncooked
  • 12 Ounces Brussels Sprouts
  • 1/4 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • Seasonings Of your choice


  1. Cut the brussels sprouts in half and then cut the slices of bacon in to small pieces. Place the cut up veggies and bacon in a bowl.

  2. Pour in olive oil, balsamic vinegar and seasonings over sprouts and bacon. I typically add salt, pepper, garlic powder and herbs de provence. Season to taste.

  3. Be sure to refer to the instructions for your air fryer. For me, I set my air fryer on 375 degrees for 10 minutes. After ten minutes, the bacon is crispy and the brussels sprouts have a darker green color. Serve warm.

The Takeaway

A few thoughts! First, who was behind the brussels sprouts rebrand?  That is one veggie that every 90s tv show used as the “worst” veggie, now all of us are finding fun ways to eat it!  For me, if I want to give a veggie something different with little effort, i use balsamic vinegar.  It also works wonders on broccoli too!

The other key thing here is the bacon.  If you are vegetarian or non-pork eater, obviously you can omit the bacon.  I on the other hand love to add bacon to any and everything even if it is a small portion.  Another tip I recommend is picking up the no sugar added bacon.  Here is the version I use from Whole Foods.  YES, they add sugar to bacon even though it does not need it.  Using the no sugar added version also makes this recipe Whole30 complaint.
