what you'll need

Special Equipment

Brussels Sprouts

  • 1.5 lb Brussels sprouts halved
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Balsamic Glaze

  • 6 slices bacon cut into pieces
  • 1 shallot thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1.5 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

let's do it

  • Preheat the air fryer to 425 degrees.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, toss the halved brussels sprouts with the olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Once coated in oil, spread the brussels sprouts into the air fryer pan evenly. Do not overlap.
  • Air fry for 10 minutes and flip the brussels sprouts over. Air fry for another 5-10 minutes until desired tenderness is reached.
  • While the brussels sprouts are cooking, make the glaze. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and add the bacon. Cook the bacon until crispy for about 3-5 minutes.
  • Remove the bacon from the pan, reserving 1 tbsp of the bacon grease. Add the shallots and cook for 2-3 minutes, then add the garlic until saute for another minute.
  • Pour in the balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, dijon, salt, and pepper. Stir continuously for about 2-3 minutes until the mixture has reduced and slightly thickened.
  • Pour air fried brussels sprouts and cooked bacon into the pan with the glaze. Toss until the brussels sprouts are completed coated in the glaze.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and pour into the desired serving dish.
