Brussels sprouts make a spectacular side dish any day of the week, and are a classic dish to serve on special occasions. The pairing of pancetta with maple syrup makes the humble sprouts shine. Using an air fryer makes this a quick recipe, but if you don’t have one, you can still make this in the oven – roast at 375°F for 25-30 minutes, until sprouts are tender and golden brown and pancetta is crispy.

Tip: ask one of our Team Members at the Deli counter to slice pancetta 1/8” thick to give you the perfect dice for this recipe.


  1. Trim and halve Brussels sprouts. In medium bowl, toss sprouts, olive oil, onion or shallot, pancetta, salt and pepper.
  2. Preheat air fryer to 350°F. Add mixture to air fryer basket - depending on the size of your air fryer, you may have to do this in two batches. Cook for 7 minutes. Give the basket a shake and continue cooking for another 5-8 minutes, or until sprouts are tender, golden brown and outer leaves are starting to crisp up.
  3. Remove sprouts from air fryer and place in a bowl. Drizzle with maple syrup and toss. Serve immediately.
