A Favorite Veggie

BRUSSELS SPROUTS: Look for Brussels sprouts that are heavy with tight leaves and no blemishes. They should be deep green in color. Try to choose sprouts that are all the same size if possible.
CRISPY CRUMBS: Butter helps the crumbs stick, a little garlic & parm for flavor, and of course some crispy Panko breadcrumbs for crunch.
There are a lot of delicious ways to switch up these crispy sprouts!
- Stir bacon bits into the crispy coating, or use bacon grease instead of butter for a smoky flavor.
- Make parmesan Brussels sprouts keto by switching out the Panko breadcrumbs for crushed pork rinds.

How to Make Crispy Brussels Sprouts
This delish recipe is super easy to throw together:
- Trim Brussels sprouts per the recipe below.
- Combine butter, panko, parmesan, and salt & pepper in a bowl. Toss with the Brussels.
- Roast in the oven until tender and crispy.
Not all of the crumbs will stick, sprinkle what’s left in the bowl on top of the sprouts before baking and gently press. Add extra parmesan if you’d like.
Tips for Perfect Sprouts
- Adjust roasting time based on the size of Brussels sprouts if needed.
- Use sprouts of the same size for uniform cooking. If they vary in size, Decrease larger ones in half and leave smaller ones whole.
- Sprinkle any leftover crumbs in the bowl onto the brussels sprouts before cooking and press gently.
- For extra crispy Brussels sprouts, place them under the broiler for a minute or two before serving.
We’re not sure what to do with leftovers because we’ve never had them. (Just kidding, kind of)! Store leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. Reheat in the oven or air fryer.
