Inside: A super simple recipe for roasted crispy brussels sprouts. So addicting and delicious, you won’t be able to stop eating them. This is the dish you serve to change someone’s mind about brussels sprouts.
Brussels sprouts get a pretty bad rep. And I can totally see why. They are typically served boiled, steamed, or cooked to death and usually end up soggy, bitter, and totally unappetizing.
BEST EVER Roasted Crispy Brussels Sprouts
But you guys! I’m so excited to share this genius technique for cooking brussels sprouts SO GOOD that my five year old polished off almost an entire pound by herself. I was making it as a side dish to our dinner, but she asked for a taste and then wouldn’t stop eating them.
I guess there are worse things than a kid that eats the entire side dish of vegetables.

The Genius Technique You’ve Never Heard Of
This recipe for roasted crispy brussels sprouts is super simple and uses only minimal ingredients. The trick here is instead of roasting the sprouts whole, we separate the leaves, coat in some good quality olive oil and seasoning, and spread out in a large baking tray.
Then just roast until crispy, about 10 minutes. You want the edges of the leaves to start turning brown, because those bits of caramelized goodness is where all the flavor comes from. Oh, these are so, so good.
That’s it! Ready to get started? Here’s what you do!
