So, truth, I never had Brussel Sprouts until I purchased an air fryer, and then you know what, I fell in love. Better yet my kids really loved them, and so I began making them over and over again, and started really experimenting with other flavors would go great with them.
Because if you are a mom like me, you know that once you find something your kids will eat, and better yet it is a vegetable, you will make it until they are sick of it.
If you have not cooked Brussels Sprouts in the air fryer, here are some tips to get you started,
- The reason why Brussel sprouts are so popular right now, in the air fryer world, is they get crispy on the inside, but stay soft on the inside. Which makes for a perfect bite.
- I personally like my Brussels sprouts charred, as it adds a lot of flavor, and they become almost like chips. But, my kids like them with a bite to them, so less cooked. So, try them both ways and see how you like them, since it’s your air fryer, it’s always best to figure out your tastes.
- I always cut the stem off the Brussels sprouts, because otherwise, it gets really hard in the air fryer, and so a simple trim does wonders.
- I always coat mine with a few tablespoons of olive oil, you do not need a lot, but a little goes a LONG way. And they cook much better with olive oil.
