  • Cook for 5 minutes. Remove the basket from the air fryer, toss the brussels sprouts, and add the parmesan cheese on top. It’s ok if some of it falls through the grate.

1 serving is 1/4 of the recipe. I like to take the dish and divide it into 4 portions.
You could also drizzle balsamic glaze over too.
The brussels sprouts used were a small-medium size. If you have large brussels sprouts, you may need to increase the cook time a few minutes, depending on how crispy you like them.
