Ingredients & Variations
BRUSSELS sprouts: Use the new Brussels sprouts in this recipe if you can. The young shoots may be left entirely.
You can also use frozen shoots but the texture is slightly softer. Frozen Brussel shoots do not need to be melted first but the cooking time will need to be increased.
BACON: Use regular sliced bacon. If you have a thick sliced bacon I would suggest cooking it lightly in an air bag before folding it (as we do with scallops wrapped in bacon) to kick well.
DIFFERENCES: For a more glossy, add brown sugar instead of maple sugar. The bacon can be replaced with a slightly chewed pancetta. To get a kick, try brushing with sriracha, too!
There is nothing better than Brussels & bacon!
Wash and dry Brussels.
Cut the bacon into three pieces and wrap the piece next to each shoot.
Place the seam side down on the air vent.
Sprinkle with brown sugar.
Cook each recipe below.
If you use frozen Brussels, it does not need to melt but the cooking time will increase.
Cook until you look down so that the bacon does not crack.
Do not tighten the basket. With more air flow, Brussels will be crispier. Cook in batches if needed.
Store the rest in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. They can be frozen and will stay in the fridge for 3 months.
Heat again in an air fryer at 350 ° F for 10 minutes or until heated.
