turning everyone into a sprout lover

OK, I know not everyone loves Brussels Sprouts, but I think I can change their minds with these sprouts.  They are tender, crispy and loaded with tons of flavor that will make everyone love them.

Just a little crisp

The beauty of these brussels sprouts is that they have just a bit of crunch and it is from baking them…no frying involved.  I don’t know why but I just love a little crunch on my side dish.

To make these just the right amount of crispy…it is all about the panko bread crumbs.  I have always been a fan of these super crunchy breadcrumbs but using them with brussels sprouts takes them to a whole new level. 

Super easy….I promise

The best part about these Brussels Sprouts (other than they are DELICIOUS) they are SUPER easy to make.  Two bowls, a cutting board and a sheet pan and you are good to go.  

I use just a few spices; salt, pepper, garlic powder and all purpose seasoning but you could add in some chili powder or cumin for some added flavor.  You could also use lemon pepper seasoning or taco seasoning for Taco Tuesday.  The possibilities are endless.

The crispier the better

I love roasted brussels sprouts when they get a little bit charred on the ends and browned all over…and with these sprouts the little charred bits also become super crunchy bits.    Let me tell you I love me some crunchy bits for sure.  

These are hands down my favorite brussels sprouts…EVER!

Bring on some sprout love
