The air fryer has become one of my favorite small appliances and making veggies in them, especially these Brussel sprouts, is my go-to.


The outsides of these sprouts become the perfect crispiness but on the inside, they are still tender and delicious.

Ingredients you will need:

  • 1 lb. Brussels sprouts trimmed and cut in half
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¼ cup crushed pork rind crumbs
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste

How to Cook Air Fryer Brussel Sprouts!

Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees.


Add the Brussel sprouts to a mixing bowl and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, garlic powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Stir well to combine.



Place the brussels sprouts onto a parchment-lined tray or fry basket, and cook for 8-10 minutes until they have softened and begun to brown and turn crispy.



In a bowl, combine the other tablespoon of olive oil, parmesan cheese, and pork rind crumbs.



Stir to combine, and then sprinkle the mixture over the brussels sprouts.



Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until crispy.



Do you need to soak brussel sprouts before cooking?

Although it is pretty typical to soak your brussel sprouts in a bowl of cold if you are planning to oven roast them these air fried brussel sprouts do not need to be soaked prior to cooking.

Yes, they are a green veggie and are one of the healthiest with a good source of protein, vitamin C and K.
