HOW TO MAKE CREAMY BRUSSELS SPROUTS
To make these cheesy, creamy Brussels sprouts in the Ninja Foodi, you’ll need:
- Brussels sprouts
- Salt & pepper
- Fresh garlic
- Vegetable broth
- Cream cheese
- Shredded parmesan cheese
Start by adding the cleaned Brussels sprouts to the Foodi cooking pot.
Add the cream cheese, butter, garlic, salt and pepper. . .then pour the vegetable broth over the top.
Put the pressure lid on the Foodi and cook the Brussels sprouts on HIGH PRESSURE for 2 minutes, then perform a quick release.
Sprinkle the parmesan cheese and bacon over the top of the sprouts.
Put the crisping lid on the Foodi and select AIR CRISP for 3-5 minutes or until the top is slightly browned.
HOW DO I CHOOSE, CLEAN AND CUT BRUSSELS SPROUTS?
When purchasing Brussels sprouts, opt for fresh not frozen sprouts (which are already more soft and tender). Look for sprouts that are smaller, bright green and tightly-packed, meaning no loose leaves on them.
Clean the sprouts and remove and discard any yellowed outer leaves. Then cut each sprout in half the long way (it keeps the leaves intact) to ensure even cooking.
CAN I MAKE BRUSSELS SPROUTS AHEAD OF TIME?
I wouldn’t. These sprouts are best when served immediately out of the Foodi. They will become mushy if you leave them sit too long.
So if you’re bringing this dish to a family gathering, just bring along your Foodi and cook the Brussels sprouts right there on-site!
HOW SHOULD YOU STORE LEFTOVER BRUSSELS SPROUTS?
Place any remaining sprouts in an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
