Crispy Brussels Sprouts
- 1 lb brussels sprouts, cleaned
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder or Calabrian chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon honey
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray, or rub the pan with butter. Do not use parchment paper, or they will steam.
- Boil a large pot of water and add salt. Prepare Brussels sprouts by peeling off the exterior shell, if damaged, and cutting off the stems.
- Blanch the cleaned Brussels sprouts for 5-7 minutes, or until fork tender, in the boiling water. Remove the sprouts and place them into a large bowl. Cool for 5 minutes, or place them in an ice bath for 30 seconds. Pat them dry with paper towels.
- Cut the Brussels sprouts in half (this will help them get more sauce than leaving them whole). Toss them with olive oil and salt. Roast the Brussels sprouts in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and crispy edges. Roast and stir halfway through cooking time.
In a small bowl combine melted butter, chili powder, paprika, salt, red pepper flakes, honey, and syrup and whisk until combined.
Remove the tray from the oven and toss the crispy brussel sprouts with the prepared sauce. Place on a large flat serving platter and serve hot!
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.
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 - The best way to reheat your leftover crispy Brussel 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 brussles sprouts after reheating them.
