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!
