Sweet and tart balsamic vinegar pairs well with the bitterness of Brussels sprouts; the bacon adds a smokey flavor. After 10 minutes, there's still some bite to the sprouts; add a few more minutes for a softer texture, if desired.

Perfect as written! No changes necessary. The leaves that fell off of the sprouts while shaking were far better than any kale "chip" I've ever had. I'll be trying this recipes with the leaves only. Don't get me wrong, the vinegar/bacon combo was excellent on the roasted sprouts but I will be experimenting with just the leaves after this. 5 stars all the way! Read More

They were overcooked at 10 minutes. Perhaps they were smaller than the sprouts in the recipe. I will do it again but less cooking time because I love sprouts and the fryer. Read More

Loved the recipe overall but I think I'll be cutting the salt back a bit next time round. Read More

I chose this recipe for the lower temperature of 350 F. It allowed the halved sprouts to be cooked a little longer without burning. Cooked for 12 minutes in pre-heated air fryer, tossing half way thru. Sprouts were just right. Omitted the balsamic vinegar as a personal preference. Will use this recipe again. Read More

The combination of balsamic and bacon was great! I should have cooked the sprouts a bit longer but I will keep that in mind for next time. I just started air frying and still getting the hang of it. Read More
