Crushed Brussel Sprouts

Share

Spice up your side of Brussels with this Crushed Brussel Sprouts recipe! We all know Brussel sprouts have a bad rap and it’s completely unjustified in my opinion. The problem is that people tend to overcook them and then of course they get mushy and lose their flavor. In this smashed Brussel sprouts recipe, the sprouts are flavored with garlic and red pepper and drizzled with olive oil before being baked, so they start to get a hint of caramelization around the edges.

To finish, the crushed sprouts are scattered with parmesan which bubbles and melts over the top. Certainly not your standard Brussel sprouts recipe, it will make you totally rethink your opinion on sprouts!
