Making Brussels Sprouts in the Air Fryer is great! You can absolutely make these in a hot ovens as well. I really like using my air fryer & are always trying new things in it. I have had my Air Fryer for quite a while but tend to only use it for frozen French fries, frozen breaded fish & chicken wings. I am trying to make more things in it!
This is super simple and of course you can make this your own by adding different spices to your Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts. You can use the maple syrup as I have suggested but feel free to add more if you like you Brussels Sprouts sweeter! Or, of course you can leave the maple syrup out & these are still perfectly delicious!
Here is the recipe
2 lb Brussels Sprouts
2 tbsp (approx) olive oil
4 tbsp maple syrup ( optional)
Preheat the Air Fryer to 375F
Take the 2 lb bag of Brussels Sprouts & cut off the stem end and any leaves that should come off. Put the Brussels Sprouts into a bowl with water and a splash of vinegar for abut 5 minutes to clean them really well. Remove them from the bowl onto a clean dish towel and pat them dry. Cut them in half lengthwise in to a bowl. Toss with olive oil & sprinkle with kosher salt.
When the Air Fryer is ready add the Brussels Sprouts and cook for 15 minutes, tossing occasionally. Just about 4 minutes before they are finished cooking pour some maple syrup on them. I added 2 tbsp… give them a toss and put them back into the air fryer. At 15 minutes there were not done as much as I like so I put them back in for another 2 minutes. Remove from the air fryer and check them. Taste them to see if they have enough salt and maple syrup & if they are cooked as much as you like. My Brussels Sprouts were still too hard for me and I wanted them sweeter so I added more salt and drizzled more maple syrup all over. I then put them back into the air fryer for another 4 minutes. Tossing them once. Cook them until they are to your liking!! NOTE: The maple syrup is optional of course. These are delish without … you can use any spices you like.
And that’s it!
