Remove the core and the outside skin of the Brussel Sprouts and place them into your Air Fryer. Cook for 10 minutes at 180c/360f.
While the Brussel Sprouts are cooking dice your bacon. Remove all visible fat and place them in the Air Fryer when it beeps. Now cook for a further 5 minutes at 200c/400f.
Serve with salt and pepper.
We use back bacon on this air fryer Brussel Sprouts with bacon recipe because it carries less fat and is a much leaner bacon. The final cooking process is done at 200c as it needs to be hotter for the bacon to be lovely and crispy.
If you’re partly cooking the Brussel Sprouts first in the Instant Pot, then drain them and then place them in the Air Fryer for 5 minutes with the bacon starting with point 2 of the recipe.
Like when you are searing beef, its always important not to overcrowd the Brussel Sprouts otherwise they won’t cook properly. Also, don’t overcook them in the Instant Pot otherwise they will become mushy. If your Brussel Sprouts are really big chop them in half so that they cook well.
