Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Hello, Welcome back to Turnips 2 Tangerines. I’m back today with another fast and easy recipe that’s made in the air fryer. I think Brussels sprouts have always gotten a bad rap. I’m really not sure why either. After all, they’re just mini cabbages.  If you’ve looked closely around the produce department lately, mini, petite and baby fruits and vegetables are all the rage. Maybe if Brussels Sprouts were marketed as “baby or mini”cabbages, they’d make a huge comeback! After all, Brussels sprouts are the first and only “original” baby or mini vegetable. Haven’t tried Brussels sprouts for some time? Make this recipe for Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts with Bacon. I guarantee you’ll love this recipe and if you still don’t like Brussels sprouts after trying this recipe, you can easily eat just the bacon!

Brussels Sprouts

Lately at the grocery store I’ve been seeing fresh Brussels sprouts still on the stalk. I’ve seen them this way at farmers markets but never at the grocery store. I imagine that the purpose of this would be to keep them fresh but honestly I really don’t know. I’ve never purchased sprouts on the stalk before so I can’t say. Next fall though, when I see them at the farmers market on the stalk, I’m going to pick some up. But before then, I better do some research as to the best way to store Brussels sprouts still on the stalk. If you have any suggestions leave me a comment below, I’d love to hear from you:) For this simple recipe we used one 16 oz package Brussels sprouts.

What You’ll Need:

The ingredient list is a short one. What you’ll need to make Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts with Bacon is:

  • Brussels Sprouts, 16 oz package
  • 4 Slices Bacon, cubed
  • Everyday Seasoning Blend or Seasoning of Choice, to taste
  • 2 Tablespoon olive oil

The Everyday Seasoning Blend that I’ve been using as of late is from Trader Joe’s. It’s one of our absolute favorites and whenever I get the chance to go to Trader Joe’s, I pick up a couple grinders. The nearest Trader Joe’s is roughly 2 1/2 hours away so I don’t get there often but when I do, watch out! I buy everything in two’s. I try to make a Trader Joe’s run at least 4 times a year to stock up on all of my favorites:)
