Ingredients for Air Fryer Frozen Brussels Sprouts

Frozen Brussels sprouts get a makeover when you throw them in the air fryer with this easy recipe. For this recipe you will need:

  • frozen brussels sprouts
  • oil- vegetable oil, avocado oil, olive oil (any you prefer)
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • black pepper
  • salt 

How to Make Air Fryer Frozen Brussels Sprouts

To start, preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees. While air fryer is preheating combine together all of the spices and stir to combine. 

Then, place frozen brussels sprouts in a mixing bowl. Add olive oil and toss to coat the brussels sprouts. Next, sprinkle spices on top and toss to coat well. 

Once the air fryer is ready, add brussels sprouts to the air fryer basket in a single layer and cook for about 10 minutes. If you have too many to cook in one batch with a single layer, just make a second one after the first one cooks.

While the sprouts cook, remove the basket halfway through cooking time and shake it up to make sure the brussels sprouts are cooking evenly. Return the basket to the air fryer to finish cooking. 

Cook frozen brussels sprouts until they are golden brown or crispy on the outside to your liking. One done, remove from air fryer and serve.
