Brussels Sprouts. I’ll be honest, I’ve been rather unconvinced by them despite their low carb count. 1g net carb per sprout, 4.58g net carbs per cup, 1.44g net carbs per oz – however you look at it, they’re a good vegetable for low carbers. They’re also a great source of riboflavin, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin A, vitamin B6 and more.
You may love them. You may be thinking that I had lulled you into a false sense of security that this was a sprout-free website. Or you may be thinking… just get on with the recipe. 🙂
I finally decided to try them, and roasting seemed like the best option. But I also decided to add in some bacon bits, crushed pork skins, and shredded Parmesan. I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome, and the added flavors and textures worked really well. So give this recipe a try!
Trim and halve the sprouts, and place them in a baking dish. Add in some olive oil, salt, pepper, bacon bits and some crushed pork rinds (pork skins). The easiest way I’ve found to crush them is to put a large handful into a zip plastic bag and bash them into crumbs. Stir everything around well.
Cover and place in a preheated oven for 15 minutes. Uncover, sprinkle over some shredded Parmesan cheese, then return uncovered for another 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
This would be a wonderful side dish to grilled chicken or fish!
