Ninja Air Fryer Bacon Parmesan Brussels Sprouts, the only Brussel Sprouts I will ever eat! Hey there friends, meet Jennifer from JENRON DESIGNS. A guest here today on Home Pressure Cooking sharing one of her fall favorite treats, with us today in her Ninja Air Fryer, with Bacon Parmesan Brussels Sprouts.

So I have never been a huge fan of Brussel sprouts, until now. I tried a similar dish while dining out, with some friends, at a local restaurant. I immediately thought these are delicious, I bet I can make these in my Ninja Air Fryer. You can also make Brussel sprouts in the Instant Pot. They are certainly delicious, but you don’t get that crispy outside texture.

First you want to start with 1 pound of rinsed and clean Brussel sprouts. I cut mine in half but you can even quarter them if you wish, depending on the size.

Next, you want to coat your sprouts with 1 tbsp of really good olive oil and 1 tbsp of Balsamic vinegar. I chose to add some additional flavor here, by using my favorite brand of specialty oils and balsamic vinegar. While this is not required, I do find this brings some great variations to all your recipes and more fun and flavorful combinations.

Once you have tossed the brussels sprouts in your oil and vinegar, you can add in 8 oz of chopped bacon directly on top. This is completely optional, and you can omit this to make a vegan recipe. Set your Air Fryer to 400 degrees for 5 minutes.

When it has finished cooking lightly toss with tongs. Then add 1/4 cup of Italian breadcrumb and 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese. Continue cooking at 400 degrees for an additional 5-6 minutes or until you reach desired crispiness.
