I normally don’t go ALL out, trying to keep my recipes from being either too fatty, processed or complicated. Well, this time… I kept it as simple as possible and added all the goodness my heart requested to make them as delicious as my inner fat kid wanted them to be! It worked.

Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts – Air Fryer or Oven!

Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts | The Foodie Eats

Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts

Air Fryer or Oven!

Believe it or not, I did not grow up eating Brussels sprouts. I’m pretty sure that’s because my mother hated them. If only she had this maple bacon Brussels sprouts recipe! These are both tender and crispy, as well as semi-sweet and savory! They are everything you want them to be.

 

My Favorite Part of This Recipe…

Call me crazy… but I LOVE the “burned” crispy leaves that separate from the sprouts when you toss them! I usually toss them a little more than necessary just to have more of them, especially in the air fryer preparation. They add both texture and flavor.

 

The Process

Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts | The Foodie Eats

In a medium mixing bowl – add olive oil, vinegar, maple syrup, salt, and pepper.

 

Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts | The Foodie Eats

Whisk together until fully combined.

 

Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts | The Foodie Eats

Slice bacon into 1/2-inch pieces.

 

Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts | The Foodie Eats

Add Brussels sprouts and bacon to bowl and toss well to coat evenly.

 

Maple Bacon Brussels Sprouts | The Foodie Eats

Transfer sprouts and bacon to air fryer. Cook at 350 degrees for 8-12 minutes – depending on how crispy you like them. At least once during cooking, take out basket and toss contents around.

Air Fryer Steak – Coffee & Spice Ribeye

Air Fryer Steak - Coffee & Spice Ribeye | The Foodie Eats

Air Fryer Steak

Coffee & Spice Ribeye

The best part of this air fryer steak (in my opinion) is the sear! I had to figure out how to make an actual sear happen by using an air fryer. The answer: coffee and brown sugar! The coffee for color and the sugar caramelizes for texture under high heat.

Developing this air fryer steak recipe has truly been one of my favorites since we started writing about food. I know steak very well. But I had never used an air fryer to cook one.

 

The Single Most Important Part of Making This Recipe

Whenever cooking steak, whether in an air fryer or not, it is important to let the meat come close to room temperature before cooking it. This is the only way to get the inside of the steak to cook before the outside overcooks. Never ever go straight from the refrigerator to the heat.

 

Air Fryer Steak - Coffee & Spice Ribeye | The Foodie Eats

 

Okay, There are 2 Most Important Parts

After your steak is done cooking, it is incredibly important that you let it rest before slicing it. If you slice it too early, all the juices will run out onto the plate. But if you let it rest, the juices get absorbed back into the meat.

You really want to let it rest as long as possible, while still remaining warm. But a good rule-of-thumb is to let any steak rest for at least 5 minutes; though I usually aim for ten.

 

The Process

Air Fryer Steak - Coffee & Spice Ribeye | The Foodie Eats

In a small bowl – add all spices.

 

Air Fryer Steak - Coffee & Spice Ribeye | The Foodie Eats

Using a whisk – combine spices, making sure to break up the pesky brown sugar.

 

Air Fryer Steak - Coffee & Spice Ribeye | The Foodie Eats

Sprinkle a generous amount of spice mix onto a plate. Lay one steak on top of spices.

 

Air Fryer Steak - Coffee & Spice Ribeye | The Foodie Eats

Season steak liberally with spice mix and rub into meat evenly.

 

Air Fryer Steak - Coffee & Spice Ribeye | The Foodie Eats

Pick up steak and press all sides into remaining spice mix on the plate so that none of the spices are wasted.

 

Air Fryer Steak - Coffee & Spice Ribeye | The Foodie Eats

Let steak sit for at least 20 minutes to come to room temperature. This help the steak cook evenly.

 

Air Fryer Steak - Coffee & Spice Ribeye | The Foodie Eats

Prepare air fryer tray by coating with oil to prevent sticking. Preheat air fryer to 390 degrees for at least 3 minutes. Cook undisturbed for 9 minutes. Do not flip and do not open. Once cook time is finished, remove from air fryer and let rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing.

Air Fryer Chicken Wings – Spicy, Sweet & Savory

Air Fryer Chicken Wings - Spicy, Sweet & Savory | The Foodie Eats

Air Fryer Chicken Wings

Spicy, Sweet & Savory

I don’t know about you, but I’m kinda sick of regular ol’ buffalo wings. I guess I’ve reached the point in life where I’ve nearly eaten too many of them. Well… that’s not entirely true. There’s one exception to this “rule”. If there’s a truly amazing sauce, I can still put away a dozen (or two) in one sitting. I’m happy to report that these Air Fryer chicken wings fall into the latter category.

Air Fryer Portobello Burger with Basil Pesto-Mayo

Air Fryer Portobello Burger | The Foodie Eats

Air Fryer Portobello Burger with Basil Pesto-Mayo

You ever have one of those amazing ideas for dinner while eating breakfast? Then you can’t stop thinking about it until it comes to life? Yeah, that happened today. This air fryer portobello burger is everything you want in a burger: flavorful, juicy, messy!

Have Some Fun with the Toppings

Since beginning our plant-based eating, I’ve been dying for mayo. Just Mayo is the best vegan brand I’ve found so far. My wife has also been wanting pesto. So I combined the Minimalist Baker’s Easy Vegan Pesto with the Just Mayo for an INCREDIBLE sauce. I literally ate about 3 spoonfuls. Just because.

And this may seem a little out there, but sautéed spinach on a burger is pretty amazing. It was so much more enjoyable than boring romaine or iceberg lettuce. Not to mention the added value of nutrition.

Bonus: I just learned a new (to me) trick for taming onions. If you soak them in vinegar and water, they become so much more palatable, while maintaining their crunchy texture.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
