What to serve with Brussels sprouts
Brussels sprouts are one of those sides where you can eat them by themselves but also pair them with your favorite type of meat. Some of my personal favorites to pair air fryer Brussels sprouts are these Easy Garlic Broiled Chicken Thighs and Pan-Seared Steak.
Brussels sprouts are also perfect side items for your meal prep!
Brussels sprouts can be made in a lot of different ways they can be sautéed, roasted, and, steamed. Cast iron Brussels sprouts and bacon is another one of my favorite Brussel sprout recipes! Everything is better when you add bacon to it!
