These super-crispy and browned air-fryer Brussels sprouts with sweet onions and salty bacon—all amped up with bright lemon juice—are sure to be a hit, whether you serve them for a weeknight side dish or as part of your holiday spread for Thanksgiving. This recipe makes enough to serve eight but is easily halved, though once you taste it you may well want a double serving. And if you prefer a vegetarian side, simply omit the bacon.

  • 4 slices center-cut bacon

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Place bacon in a single layer in the basket of an air fryer. Air-fry at 400°F until the bacon is crisp, about 14 minutes, flipping once halfway through. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.
  2. Toss Brussels sprouts, onion, oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Place about half of the Brussels sprouts mixture in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Air-fry at 375°F until browned and crispy, 14 to 16 minutes, flipping once halfway through. Transfer to a serving platter. Repeat with the remaining Brussels sprouts mixture. Drizzle with lemon juice; sprinkle with thyme. Crumble the cooked bacon over the top.
