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, crushed pork rinds, and Parmesan. I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome, and the added flavors and textures worked really well. So give this recipe a try!
How to Make Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Parmesan
Trim and halve the sprouts, and place them in a large bowl.
Add some olive oil, salt, pepper, and chopped cooked bacon (or bacon bits). Stir to combine.
Transfer to a baking dish, then cover and roast in a preheated oven for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine grated Parmesan and pork rind crumbs in a bowl.
Uncover the sprouts, stir, and sprinkle the Parmesan mixture over the top. Return to the oven uncovered for another 15 minutes or until the sprouts are tender.
This would be a wonderful side dish for grilled chicken or fish – or serve it at Thanksgiving or Christmas!
