Sometimes the best tasting food can be the worst for you. Well, instead of frying food for that crunch you crave, try baking them instead. It’s the best way to get that same crunch and texture without nearly the same amount of oil. These Easy Crispy Parmesan Brussels Sprouts use the baking method for a healthy, yummy crunch. With 4 ingredients and 15 minutes, you can have yourself a great finger food, snack, or even side dish.
First, lightly season the sprouts with Kosher salt, olive oil and that’s it! There are so many natural flavors at work, so you don’t need any more than that! Top it all off with a little Parmesan, because who doesn’t love cheese? The finished product are golden brown, crunchy Brussels sprouts covered in gooey cheese. Now try and tell us those weren’t delicious!
