You think of brussels sprouts when the holiday season is around the corner. In fact, you can easily find this vegetables even holidays passed.
With my pre-teen, going to different fast food joints is one of our many adventures. I must say that it is tough when you need to stick to low-carb diet. When you stumbled on anything fit to your diet plan, won’t you jump for joy?
That’s exactly how it happened when I first saw this brussels sprouts on the SmasH Burger menu. Of course, after the first bite, I swore that I got to make more at home. The little bag you got for the money you paid for was pretty pricey. But these little cuties were my saving grace that day.
This recipe can only use fresh brussels sprouts. Frozen one doesn’t work.
There are some pre-trimmed ones in the supermarket. But if you see the area where it was cut from the stem is dark, stay away from it. You will end up spending plenty of time trimming the dark part.
Extra virgin olive oil no-stick cooking spray is an agent to crisp up these cuties. Also, don't crowd the baking sheet. Leave about a quarter of the combined space on the baking sheet. So, when the brussels sprouts are cooking in the oven and shrink, it will give room to crisp up.
I cooked this recipe many times. Personally, salt and pepper is the best. If you follow this recipe, hold the salt until last because the ranch powder has quite a bit of salt. Or it will be too salty.
I paired these crispy roasted brussels sprouts with different main courses. Although this recipe requires the veggies in the 350F oven, you can put the brussels sprouts into the same oven while cooking the following at a lower temperature:
The above main courses cook in the oven at 325F. So, you will put in the tray of these brussels sprouts on the top rack and bake for an hour. It will come out as great as it is cooked on its own.
