Kitchen Confessions {Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts}

Any brussels sprouts fans out there? I really like them, but only if they are "well done." There is something about that crispy and kind of charred taste on the outside of them that I love.  Before I had an air fryer I would cut them in half, toss them in olive oil and cook them in the oven until they were nice and crispy. Then I'd season with my family's favorite Everything But The Bagel Seasoning from Trader Joes. I put this stuff on EVERYTHING and if you haven't tried it, you definitely should! 

Then when I discovered hot honey I started drizzling that on just about everything, too. Including my brussels sprouts. 

Now that I have an air fryer I've been cooking them in that because they just cook so much faster and crisp up a lot better.


I love ordering brussels sprouts when we are out at restaurants because everyone puts their own twist on them, but I think I had my very favorite brussels when we were at Barnsley Resort over New Years.  We all shared them as an appetizer on the first night and they were SO good that we decided to get them again on night number two!

We didn't even really read the description on the menu so when they arrived that first night with something on top we weren't quite sure what it was until the first bite.  We discovered it was Granny Smith apples on top which was such an unexpected surprise, but oh so tasty!  

The next time I made brussels sprouts at home I decided to try to recreate something similar and they were so good! I might have hurt my shoulder patting myself on the back at recreating this dish.  Ha! 

Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts 

*Wash and cut brussels in half

*Stir brussels with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. 

*Transfer brussels to air fryer basket and cook on 350 for about 15 minutes (or until desired crispness is achieved), shaking halfway through. 

*While they are cooking julienne 1/2 of a Granny Smith apple. 

*Transfer brussels to serving dish and season with salt, drizzle with hot honey and top with the apples.  

I know it sounds like such a weird combination, but the mixture of different flavors is really good! Let me know if you give this a try!
