The Best Brussels Sprouts


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 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. šŸ™‚

    • Raquel Lynn says:

      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!

    Anybody know how many servings this is?

  11. Cindie says:

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

    • Raquel Lynn says:

      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 says:

      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.

  12. JoJo says:

    I just tried these tonight and yeah, this recipe is a total keeper. GET IN MAH BELLEH!!!!!

  13. Keeley says:

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

    • Regan says:

      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 šŸ™‚ Hope this helps!

  14. Stacie says:

    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.

  15. Ulli says:

    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.

    So good I shared on my facebook and Instagram. Can’t wait to cook again. Simple, fast and yummy!!!!

  21. Sherry Smith says:

    Try roasting them. Cut in half, salt & pepper. Put a little butter & olive oil in the pan, roast until brown on the flat side. Don’t over cook. Best when little crunchy.
