Sweet + Spicy Crispy Brussels

I went from thinking Brussels sprouts were repulsive to ordering them every time I see them on a menu. Crispy Brussels are all the rage at so many restaurants now, but every time I try to make them at home they end up soggy and gross. I’ve tried my fair share of Brussels recipes, and I finally found one I love. It’s delicious and foolproof. You only need a few things!

What you need:

  • 1 lb Brussels, halved
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup

What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F
  2. Trim and halve your brussels.
  3. Toss in olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Roast for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and toss. Return to oven for 15 more minutes. They should char.
  5. Remove from oven and toss in maple syrup and red pepper flakes.
  6. Return to oven for 3 minutes.
  7. Enjoy!
