Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts


At the request of one of my favorite all-time clients, I am sharing this recipe here and on FB for her. We tried these and have altered the seasoning several ways but, this combination is my favorite!

  • 1-2 Cups Brussels sprouts
  • Dan-O’s low sodium seasoning
  • Duck Fat cooking spray
  • Blazing Star Asian BBQ sauce

Remove stem and outer layer of the sprouts.

Put the spouts into a container with a lid. Cover with water and Dan-0’s seasoning. Vent lid and microwave for 5 minutes.

Drain and smash each Brussels sprout with the bottom of a glass. Put in air fryer in a single layer. Spray with the Duck Fat & season with Dan-O’s seasoning.

Air fry at 400º 10 minutes. Serve with Blazing Star Asian sauce for dipping.

Debe  quite the interesting recipe.  I've never seen duck fat or the other seasoning but it sounds like something that would be fun to try.  When you say....smash them with the glass I have no idea what that means!!!

Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker - the sprouts are soft after microwaving. Lay them on your cutting board and smash them into silver-dollar-sized 'flat but, fat' sprouts with the bottom of a glass or jar. Just smush them to make them easy to pick up with your fingers and dip them!

You can use regular salt & pepper on the Brussels sprouts, Kathy Streib - that is very similar to the Dan-O's. The dip is what you like. The last time I cooked these, I used Stonewall Kitchen's Sesame, Ginger Teriyaki Sauce. Pick your favorite sauce or dressing and use olive oil spray if you don't have the other ingredients.

Hi Debe... my air fryer is my most favorite new appliance. Never thought I'd replace my slow cooker with a more favorite appliance. I've done Brussels Sprouts and other veggies in my air fryer and they taste fabulous!

We have tried brussel sprouts with pomegranate and balsamic vinegar in our air fryer, and really liked them.  I'll share this recipe with Bernie.  He loves trying new things.
