These air fryer roasted Brussels sprouts were a total experiment that actually worked out quite well.

In my experience, I have found that there are two types of people in this world. People who love Brussels sprouts, and people who hate them. I have never met a single person who is somewhere in the middle.

More often than not, the people that don’t like them dislike them because they have never had them cooked properly. Now I’m not saying there aren’t exceptions to that rule, but in most cases, that seems to be the issue.

Enter the air fryer….

I’ve been having a blast experimenting with this new air fryer of mine. You can read my air fryer review here on my air fryer site where I talk about reasons to get one as well as reasons to NOT get one. But if an air fryer is a good fit for you, then you simply must try Brussels sprouts at least one time. The air fryer cooks these little, mini cabbages to perfection, each and every time. They end up roasted to delicious crispiness on the outside, and are cooked al dente on the inside. They maintain their beautiful color as well as the majority of their nutrients. It’s a delicious win-win and you won’t have to deal with that awful smell you get when you steam them. Ick.

    This looks great, Tiffany. Thanks. What kind of air fryer did you get, and why? Do you have an affiliate link here somewhere? Also, more recipes using the air fryer?

    Ohhhhh, and do you have an Instant Pot (and recipes) yet? I just got one and so far made polenta… incredibly easy.

      Carol – Thank you! I just updated the post with the exact air fryer I have. And yes, I do have more recipes (with more on the way!). You can find them here: I do also have an IP and recipes for that as well, although those are a little slower to come, but I will definitely have more of those coming as well. Here’s what I have so far:

  2. Do you think the air fryer can somehow revamp frozen brussels?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Andrea – I’ve never tried, but my guess is that if you thaw them first and cut them in half, you might get pretty close. I’m sure the texture will be a little different though.

  3. Hi, Did you cut the brussel sprouts in half? Can’t wait to try this recipe!
