Crispy Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts

Crispy Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts

Crispy Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts are delicious on their own, a little shallot butter and vinegar mixture — made while they air fry — makes them feel like a more complete side. Use the same bowl you used to coat the Brussels sprouts in oil to combine melted butter, minced shallot, and a splash of vinegar, and you officially have the best weeknight Brussels sprouts.

Cooking times vary depending on the size of brussels sprouts. Mostly brussels sprouts are brown, crispy, and tender. For small to medium brussels sprouts, cut them in half. If they’re larger, then cut them into thirds. Most importantly, try to buy them in all the same size for consistent cooking. You can also par-boil them first, drain and then continue with the air frying recipe method. Parboiling helps make them a little softer and more cooked through the center.
The best crispy air fryer Brussels sprouts! Perfect for fast healthy sides. You can customize with garlic, Parmesan, maple syrup or balsamic.
Here is its quick recipe:
PREP:10 mins | COOK:12 mins | TOTAL:22 mins 
SERVINGS: 4 servings


  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic thinly sliced (optional but delish!)


  • 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze or reduced balsamic vinegar
  • Drizzle pomegranate molasses
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Trim off the ends of the Brussel sprouts and remove any brown outer leaves. Cut them in half from stem to end.
  2. If any are very large, cut them into quarters from stem to end so that all the pieces are fairly similar in size and cook evenly.
  3. Preheat the air fryer to 375 degrees, according to the manufacturer’s instructions (for my air fryer, that’s 3 minutes of preheating).
  4. Drain the Brussels sprouts and with a towel, lightly pat dry.
  5. Wipe out the bowl you used for soaking, then add the Brussels sprouts back to it (if you didn’t soak the sprouts, simply place them in a large mixing bowl).
  6. Drizzle with the oil and sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Toss to coat evenly, then add them to your fryer basket.
  7. Cook the sprouts for 5 minutes, then slide out the basket and shake it to toss the Brussels sprouts to promote even cooking. Cook 5 additional minutes, then slide out the basket again.
  8. The Brussels sprouts should look like they are getting nice and crispy and are almost done (if not, let them cook a minute or so longer).
  9. Add the garlic cloves and toss to coat once more. Cook 2 to 4 additional minutes, checking and shaking the basket often until the Brussels sprouts are deeply crisp.
  10. If adding toppings, transfer the Brussels sprouts to a serving bowl (or wipe out the mixing bowl you previously used) and stir in any desired toppings.
  11. Enjoy hot.
  • STORE: Refrigerate Brussels sprouts in an airtight storage container for up to 4 days.
  • REHEAT: Rewarm leftovers on a baking sheet in the oven at 350 degrees F.
  • FREEZE: The Brussels sprouts will get mushy once thawed, so we don’t recommend freezing them. If you have lots leftover, you can freeze them in an airtight freezer-safe storage container for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating
