- 1 pound Brussels sprouts
- ¼ cup olive or avocado oil
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- 4 bacon slices, cut into ½-inch pieces
- Trim and halve the washed Brussels sprouts, removing discolored leaves. Larger sprouts may need to be quartered to keep sprouts uniform in size.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together oil, maple syrup, vinegar, salt, and pepper.
- Add Brussels sprouts and raw bacon pieces to the bowl and gently stir to coat.
- Spoon coated sprouts and bacon to the air fryer. (Note that any extra glaze/sauce will just fall to the bottom of the air fryer.)
- Cook at 350° F for 10-15 minutes, until bacon and sprouts reach desired crispiness. Halfway through cooking, open drawer and stir contents.
Oven cooking instructions:
- Transfer coated sprouts and bacon to a baking dish or pan and cook in preheated oven at 425° F for 30-40 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes.
I don’t like a lot of loose leaves in this dish because they can taste burnt, but the crispness of them can be nice. Leave some in, remove them all - up to you!
