Crispy Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts - Bearcookers

All veggies in the air-fryer are so good — thanks to the super-hot circulating air, they’re sweeter, crunchier, and more flavorful than if I had roasted them — and Brussels sprouts are no exception. In fact, Brussel sprouts may be the perfect veggie to cook in the air fryer. Their insides become tender while their outsides crisp to perfection.


  • pound 

    Brussels sprouts

  • tablespoon 

    olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon 

    kosher salt

  • medium shallot

  • tablespoons 

    unsalted butter

  • teaspoon 

    red wine vinegar



  1. Heat an air fryer to 375ºF. Meanwhile, trim 1 pound Brussels sprouts and halve any that are larger than an inch wide. Transfer to a medium bowl, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, and toss to combine.

  2. Add the Brussels sprouts to the air fryer and shake into a single layer. Air fry, stopping to shake the basket (or rotate the pans in larger air fryers) about halfway through, for 15 minutes total. Meanwhile, prepare the shallot butter.

  3. Finely chop 1 medium shallot. Place 2 tablespoons unsalted butter in a medium microwave-safe bowl and melt in the microwave. (Alternatively, melt in a medium saucepan over low heat, then remove from the heat.) Add the shallots and 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar and stir to combine.

  4. When the Brussels sprouts are ready, transfer into the bowl or saucepan with the shallot butter and toss to combine. Serve immediately
