Expert Tips for Making Brussel Sprouts

  • Double it: Great recipe for a crowd.  Simply increase the ingredients proportionately and Air Fry in batches.
  • Add Pancetta: Bacon is great but pancetta works great too.
  • Short cut tip: If the brussel sprouts are small leave whole, however if they are large you can half or quarter them.
