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!

    I’d probably put them back in the oven just a minute or two after adding the parmesan to let it melt and brown slightly – better flavor!

      Great tip Lori! In this recipe grated Parmesan is used which is typically pretty fine and can easily burn and turn bitter if returned to the oven. However, if you were to use a thicker shredded Parmesan it would definitely melt and be very yummy!

    love brussel sprouts, but how do you keep them from smelling up the house when they are baked?

      Dawn, The key is not to over cook, that’s when they start to release hydrogen sulfide. You might try blanching them first.
