Not everyone’s a fan of these green little cabbages, but that is where this sprouts recipe comes into play. You’re only five ingredients away from having the best green veggies of your life, packed with great flavors and textures.

  2. Place sprouts in a bowl and add olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper; toss to combine.
  3. Transfer Brussel sprouts to the air fryer’s basket and cook for 6 minutes at 400˚F.
  4. When time is up, open the air fryer, give the brussel sprouts a stir, and sprinkle with parmesan cheese and pork panko crumbs.
  5. Air fry for an additional 5 to 7 minutes, or until crisp tender. 
  6. Taste test and sprinkle with a little extra cheese, if needed, and serve. You can also add a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and maple syrup – YUM!

COOK’S NOTES

  1. This recipe as written, with one pound of Brussel sprouts, fills up the basket of my Cosori 5.8 qt. If you have a smaller model, you will have to cook these in batches. DO NOT pile them up because they won’t be crispy.
  2. Cooking time does vary, depending on the size of the Brussel sprouts – you might need to cook them longer if your sprouts are bigger. 
  3. If you don’t have pork panko crumbs, you can leave them out. If you aren’t following a low carb/Keto diet, use regular panko bread crumbs.
