How to eat your Air Fryer Brussel Sprouts:There are so many ways that you can enjoy your air fryer brussel sprouts. One of my new favorite ways is to toss them with homemade sweet and sour sauce. You can use the sauce recipe here. (Click here if online) You will not need to use all the sauce, just spoon it on in small amounts of a time until you reach your desired level. It is SO good!
CAN I USE FROZEN BRUSSEL SPROUTS?You can use frozen brussels and they will completely cook, however you will lose some of the crunch factor! Have you tried this? Drop me a note in the comments!
SOFT OUTSIDE, BUT CHEWY INSIDE?If you like a softer brussel throughout, you can microwave the brussels for a few minutes before air frying. This will help the overall texture to be consistent. These brussels come out soft on the outside and a little chewier on the inside (as the recipe is written). 🙂
SPROUTS BURNING?Be sure that you are slicing the sprouts in thirds or halves depending on the size of the sprouts. The smaller the pieces the easier they will burn, however the bigger pieces won’t cook all the way. It’s a little bit of a game. You can always do a few as a test batch. Sprouts sizes can really vary!
HOW DO I COOK WITHOUT AN AIR FRYER?You can roast your brussels at 425 degrees F for about 20 minutes! Stir once in the middle of the time frame!

Now you've got my interest because I'm a fan of Brussel Sprouts but I've never used an air fryer - I've seen them in the store but I didn't know anyone that had one before.... This may just make it to my Christmas shopping list now!
I got my air fryer for Christmas a few years ago and love it!

I used frozen Brussels sprouts...they still ended up crispy and roasted! I had to air dry them for about 15 minutes to get them crispy. So yummy and easy!

Honestly, I would have never thought to do my sprouts in the air fryer! I did once try pan frying them, but ended up using too much oil and all I got was a soggy, greasy mess.
Tried these once and I'm in love!
So glad you enjoyed them! We are in love too!
