Crispy Parmesan Brussels Sprouts in the Air Fryer

Growing up, I was NOT a fan of Brussels sprouts. My mom would occasionally boil them, and it made the whole house smell funky!

When I met my husband, he convinced me to give Brussels sprouts another shot.

Oh. My. Gosh.

My husband’s Asian Brussels Sprouts are to die for!! While they’re not super high in carbs, they’re not exactly a keto side dish either.

That’s why I’m so excited about these crispy parmesan Brussels sprouts! They’re SO flavorful and crispy like chips, but have much fewer carbs!

The best part is how easy they are to make!

Why Use an Air Fryer?

An air fryer circulates hot air around your food, creating a crispy exterior without needing to use oil like a traditional deep fryer.

Not only is it a healthier alternative to frying, an air fryer is easy to use and won’t heat up the kitchen like a regular oven. It’s easy to see why they’ve become so popular!

Can I Use a Different Seasoning?

If you don’t have Everything Bagel seasoning on hand, you can make your own similar seasoning mix:

  • 1 TB black sesame seeds
  • 1 TB regular sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • Sea salt to taste

If using the store-bought Everything Bagel seasoning mix, keep in mind that it has salt in it already. You may not need to add any additional salt to your sprouts.

If making your own seasoning mix, you will want to include a bit of salt to your taste.

Can I Make This Recipe in a Conventional Oven?

Yes! If you don’t have an air fryer you can still make these crispy parmesan Brussels sprouts in the oven.

Place the sprouts onto a baking sheet and bake until golden at 375°F. Stir occasionally while baking to ensure even cooking.
