Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Total Time30 mins
- 24 oz Frozen Brussels Sprouts thawed and halved
- 3 Tablespoons Bacon Fat or Lard
- 1/4 Cup Onion chopped
- 1 Tablespoon garlic minced
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- salt to taste
In a skillet or the Ninja Foodi pot, heat fat over medium heat and saute onion, garlic, sprouts and seasonings, gently stirring often.
Cook until onions become tender and split the mixture into at least two batches. If using the Ninja Foodi, carefully wipe out and place the air crisper basket in the unit.
Add half of the batch to the air fryer basket, making sure that there is room for air to circulate the sprouts.
Set air crisper or air fryer to 390 and cook for 12-15 minutes and check for desired amount of crispness. We like ours slightly charred, so we often add more time to get the batch just right.
Once a batch is done, empty basket and salt to taste. Carefully dump out any charred bits in between batches.
