Ingredients & Variations

BRUSSELS SPROUTS Choose sprouts that have intact leaves and smell fresh and sweet. This same recipe and cooking method can be applied to broccoli and cauliflower florets and chunks of zucchini or butternut squash.

SAUCE Oil and balsamic vinegar are the perfect blend that clings to the brussels sprouts and gives them a mild, sweet, smoky flavor. Leftover bacon grease is also a great oil to use that will add a bacon flavor without the meat.

VARIATIONS Other flavors to mix with the oil include honey or maple syrup. Use sugar-free maple syrup for a low-carb alternative. Add a splash of sriracha or Tabasco for a zesty roasted result. Or wrap brussels sprouts in pancetta or bacon before roasting.

Tips for Crispy Brussels Sprouts

Avoid overcrowding the air fryer so the heat circulates around each brussels sprout. Keep batches warm in the oven and place them under the broiler (sprinkle with parmesan cheese!) to make the outsides extra crispy.
