Moody Girl Eats: 12-Minute Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts & Bacon

I can't believe that it has literally been years since I've posted any recipes on my blog.  You may not know this, but actually I really enjoy cooking; however, my current job requires me to travel so much that I'm hardly home to cook up any thing good.  But ever since the Florida governor executed the coronovirus stay at home order, I've been cooking like a mad woman.  I've tested out a few new recipes already over the past few weeks and I've whipped up some of my old favorites. My new air fryer has been a total game changer for adding a little flexibility to some of my meals, especially roasted vegetables. I love that I don't have to wait 10 minutes for the oven to preheat and I don't have to wait a long time to eat them like I did in the past.  Anyways, here is a quick recipe that I used to make my air fryer brussels sprouts last week.  These make the perfect side or base when you're watching your carb intake. 

12-Minute Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts & Bacon

1 lb. brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved lengthwise
4 - 5 slices bacon, cut into pieces
2 tablespoon olive oil or avocado oil
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, or to taste

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss to combine and coat brussels sprouts evenly. Transfer brussels sprouts to air fryer basket.

Turn air fryer on to 400 F and cook for 12 minutes, until brussels sprouts are cooked through and golden brown on the edges.

*quick note: check in on the brussels sprouts every 5 minutes and stir to make sure that it cooks evenly and that they don't burn.

**If you don't have an air fryer, then you can roast them in the oven like normal.
