Storage

Fridge – Transfer the leftover Brussel sprouts to an airtight container or a jar with a lid and keep them in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Freezer – You can freeze them by placing the leftover sprouts in a freezer container for up to 3 months. Make more fresh spicy sauce and add after reheating.

Reheating

Reheating – The best way to reheat your leftover crispy Brussels sprouts is to bake them in the oven. Simple preheated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 4 to 5 mins, or quickly toss them in a hot skillet or pan. You can also reheat them for 1-2 in the microwave. I recommend making more sauce and adding it to the Brussels sprouts.

FAQ

How to make CRISPY Brussels sprouts

The key to getting perfectly crispy Brussels sprouts is baking them at a high temperature in the oven. I recommend using a greased baking sheet, or aluminum foil on a baking tray and not using parchment paper. The parchment paper will result in more steamed instead of crispy Brussels sprouts.

Do you need to blanch Brussels sprouts before baking?

For the best results in this crispy Brussels sprouts recipe, yes! The Brussels sprouts will be perfectly tender on the inside and crispy on the outside by following this cooking method.

The best part about this recipe is how easy it is to make! It truly is restaurant quality and you can make it right at home. Once you try these you will want to make them time and time again.

  1. Made these again last Sunday. Such a hit and sooo tasty! Thanks again for a delicious recipe to make me look good. 🙂






  2. You suggest that the Brussel sprouts could be substituted with other carfucious vegetables. I can’t seem to find a definition for carfucious.
    Looking forward to making this- we eat a lot of vegetables and getting bored with our own tastes and techniques! Thank you!!
