I can’t believe I’m even calling brussels sprouts amazing… up until a few months ago you would never get me near one of these! But then I went to a nice restaurant & ordered their gourmet mac & cheese, to my surprise it had brussels sprouts in it… & I loved them. I thought that I had to try making them with my own flair because maybe it was just the cheese the that made them taste good?

I’ve been making these the same way once or twice a week for a month now, just call me crazy but you have to try them my way even if you don’t like brussels sprouts, I’ll make you love them!

    I absolutely LOVED this recipe. I followed it exactly and they came out excellent. My husband, however, is slightly veggie-phobic and he’s a cheese-aholic. So I added a few dashes of Parmesan cheese and seriously– they were so great. I’m not a huge parm cheese fan, but it made such a difference that I felt compelled to comment. Thanks for the recipe!!! You made my husband eat (and ENJOY eating) brussel sprouts, which says a lot. 🙂

    • Thanks for giving them a try Katie and not giving up on your husband ; ) I was not a brussels sprouts lover until a couple of years ago. I can imagine they would be great with parmesan cheese so I might have to try that next time!

  • Lindsay

    Anybody know how many servings this is?

  • Cindie

    I’d love to try brussel sprouts (weird, huh?) but they’re a little pricey. Can frozen sprouts be successfully substituted?

    • Hi Cindie, I assume that the frozen brussels sprouts would probably taste just as good. But I don’t know if the texture would be the same. I say go for it and give it a try though!

    • Heather

      I just made these with a bag of frozen sprouts, I microwaved them for 3 min just to soften them so I could cut them up easily. I used coconut oil instead of olive oil and Parmesan cheese instead of bread crumbs and they did get nice and crispy.

    Looks yummy! Any idea how many calories there are in this recipe?? Thanks!

    • Regan

      Keeley, I saved this recipe into MyFitnessPal and it matched all of the ingredients. it is 189 calories per serving with 4 servings in this recipe. 100 of the calories are from the bread crumbs so I may try cutting that in half and seeing if that is enough for it to still be delightful. Additionally, a lot of the calories are from the olive oil, but since that is a healthy fat, that doesn’t really concern me 🙂 Hope this helps!

    I found thrm to be a bit salty. I think next time I’ll use plain bread crumbs, I also cooked them in coconut oil and cut them in half.

  • Ulli

    I’m like you…used to absolutely hate them with a passion, goes all the way back to my childhood. dared to take small bite when we went to dinner one night and I can’t believe I’m saying this, but they were actually really good, not bitter at all. with that being said, this recipe sounds delicious and I will try it for sure.

    These were very salty. Cut it down to 1/2 tsp and make sure your seasoned breadcrumbs don’t have additional salt.
