Recipe: Crispy Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts

Recently I went to the Delwood here in Cincinnati for a bite to eat after work with friends and had these Crispy Brussels Sprouts that nearly broke my Instagram with all the LIKES! 

I had been wanting to try Brussels sprouts in the air fryer so this seemed like the perfect reason! They're super simple and cook up in less than 10 minutes. They were served with this Peruvian Aji Verde sauce (fancy name = easy sauce) so whipped that up too! Fun for dipping!  

How long do you cook Brussels sprouts in the air fryer? 

I'm using a Phillips Air Fryer and love it! I actually think the restaurant ones were a little overdone - so I cooked them for 6 minutes total. If you want them crispier - then 8 minutes is perfect! 

How do you season Brussels sprouts in the air fryer? 

Brussels sprouts are best when you go simple! I sliced them in half and added in Balsamic vinegar, olive oil, minced garlic, salt and pepper. Stir your Brussels sprouts with the ingredients and you're ready for the air fryer! 

What can you serve with Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts? 

- Air Fryer Salmon (air fryer it up!!!)

- Chicken Casserole 

You can find more ideas in my Air Fryer Recipes section or in my Air Fryer Facebook group!

The Aji Verde Sauce is really simple and is great for dipping the Brussels sprouts in (makes it more kid-friendly!). The recipe is below - and I gave you just enough for dipping - so you won't be left with a bunch of sauce!
