How to Make Brussel Sprout Chips
It‘s simple to prepare these Brussels sprout chips. The key here is the hot oven.
The really hot oven helps the Brussels sprouts crisp up, and that is what makes them extra delicious!
What You‘ll Need:
- Brussels sprouts
- parmesan cheese (ideally powdered)
- olive oil
- onion powder
- garlic powder
- black pepper
Make sure that the parmesan cheese is in fine crumbles or powdered. You can buy it at the store like this or grate it yourself.
Use the fine grate side on a cheese grater or a Microplane. This will help you get the parmesan to the right consistency.
Preheat the oven to 425F (220C).
Before you begin cutting the Brussels sprouts, make sure that you remove any yellow leaves. It‘s best to clean them next.
Do this by rinsing them under cold water. Trim off the ends as they will be tough to eat and cook.
Slice each Brussels sprout into about 4 slices. Make sure they‘re thick enough, so they don‘t fall apart.
Add the spices, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese to a separate bowl.
Stir them until they are fully incorporated.
Place all of the Brussels sprout pieces into the mixture. Make sure the bowl is large enough that you can toss all the ingredients without any falling out.
Toss the Brussel sprouts to coat them evenly with the mixture.
Now, line a large baking tray with parchment paper. Use two small trays if you do not have a large one.
It‘s important that they lay flat and not on top of one another. That is how they are going to get extra crispy and tasty.
Bake them for about 20 minutes. Flip them halfway through baking, so they get crispy on both sides.
You want to remove them from the oven when they start to get crispy. The edges will be a little brown and dark. That is ok!
Let them cool for a few minutes before eating. Afterward, serve on their own or pair with your favorite sauce.
How to Store Brussel Sprout Chips?
You‘ll probably eat these Brussel sprouts right away. But you can store them for later if needed.
To do that, use glass food containers to keep them fresh for longer. It‘s important that no moisture gets into them. Otherwise, the chips will get limp and soggy.
Overall, these Brussels sprouts bites will be a great snack for all ages. Even kids will like these!
They are tastier than regular, unhealthy potato chips.
You can serve them as a side dish with your favorite meal or add them to your favorite salad.
