Looking for a way to enjoy brussels sprouts? This easy air fryer brussel sprouts with bacon recipe is sure to do the trick! Super simple to make and the result is a tasty, healthy side dish perfect for any meal!
One of the best things I’ve ever spent my hard earned money on has to be hands down without a doubt my air fryer. I use this sucker every single day, and the options are literally endless. I’ve made chicken wings, chicken breast, chicken thighs, chopped sweet potatoes, veggies, chicken nuggets, corn dogs, and my latest experiment: brussels sprouts.
Needless to say, I use my air fryer for just about everything – so much so that I’ve actually considered buying a second one just because I love having it so much. And, I could cook even more volume at one time if I had a second. I’m totally for this idea.
So about this whole brussels sprouts thing. I’m all for eating veggies. I even recommend eating something green at as many meals as possible (I talk more about that here).
Green veggies are full of essential vitamins and nutrients, and they can even help with weight loss. There is one green veggie, however, that I’ve never been able to stomach. That, my friends, is the brussels sprout.
I have tried for years to make myself like this vegetable, and have tried cooking it in so many ways. But it just doesn’t happen. I can’t stand them.
But I’m completely torn because I get that they’re so dang good for you, so I feel like I should be trying a little harder to add these into my diet every now and then.
I decided recently to give these greens another go. I purchased a bag of pre-sliced brussels sprouts from my local grocery store, and started contemplating ways I could cook these bad boys up. Naturally, throwing them in the air fryer made the most sense, right? Because, #easy.

I was skeptical about the result, but in all honesty – they were pretty good. I won’t say that brussels sprouts are all of a sudden my favorite veggie, but I really did like the flavor this time and couldn’t complain about the texture after I experimented with this air fryer recipe.
I even purchased more ingredients yesterday at the grocery store to make this meal again this week, so you can say it’s a keeper!Print
