Airfryer Brussels Sprouts
One of the best things I’ve ever spent my hard earned money on has to be hands down without a doubt my airfryer. I use this sucker every single day, and the options are literally endless. I’ve made chicken wings, chicken breast, chicken thighs, chopped sweet potatoes, veggies, chicken nuggets, corn dogs, and my latest experiment: brussels sprouts. Needless to say, I use my airfryer for just about everything – so much so that I’ve actually considered buying a second one just because I love having it so much. And, I could cook even more volume at one time if I had a second. I’m totally for this idea.
So about this whole brussels sprouts thing. I’m all for eating veggies. I even recommend eating something green at as many meals as possible (I talk more about that here). Green veggies are full of essential vitamins and nutrients, and they can even help with weight loss. There is one green veggie, however, that I’ve never been able to stomach. That, my friends, is the brussels sprout. I have tried for years to make myself like this vegetable, and have tried cooking it in so many ways. But it just doesn’t happen. I can’t stand them.
But I’m completely torn because I get that they’re so dang good for you, so I feel like I should be trying a little harder to add these into my diet every now and then.
I decided recently to give these greens another go. I purchased a bag of pre-sliced brussels sprouts from my local grocery store, and started contemplating ways I could cook these bad boys up. Naturally, throwing them in the airfryer made the most sense 😉
I was skeptical about the result, but in all honesty – they were pretty good. I won’t say that brussels sprouts are all of a sudden my favorite veggie, but I really liked the flavor and couldn’t complain about the texture after I experimented with this airfryer recipe.
I even purchased more ingredients yesterday at the grocery store to make this meal again this week, so you can say it’s a keeper 😉Print
Delicious, easy to cook brussels sprouts in an airfryer! The result is a healthy meal, with brussels sprouts that are crispy, cooked, and full of flavor! Perfect as a side dish or you main course throughout the week!
- 1 pound of brussels sprouts, halved
- 1–2 sweet potatoes, diced
- 1/2 pound bacon (I use Whole30 compliant)
- 1–2 tbs olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Veggie seasoning to taste
- Combine all ingredients except the bacon in a bowl until well mixed
- Throw into airfryer
- Cook at 380 for 25 minutes or until edges are dark
- Cut your uncooked bacon into smaller pieces, and add to the airfryer for the last 10 minutes
This made about 3-4 servings, so the next morning I made two scrambled eggs and added in a couple scoops of this meal. It was absolutely delicious and fueled my breakfasts for the next couple mornings! Top with buffalo sauce or eat plain!
