Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts with Bacon


The perfect side dish during the Holidays (or any time for that matter!) all cooked in the air fryer to free up oven space. Make sure you chop the bacon in big enough pieces so it doesn't fall through the air fryer basket.

  1. Preheat an air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Toss together Brussels sprouts, bacon, avocado oil, smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Spread out in the air fryer basket.
