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.

I was very excited to try this recipe. However, unless I missed something in the recipe, my sprouts were still hard as a rock after 15, and additional 20 and, hoping the next 20 min will soften them so I can eat them.

Apologies for the delay - I've now reworked the recipe. I hope this turns out better for you!

Hmmm, that's strange. Maybe I was using particularly small sprouts?!? I'll try the recipe again.

I was always a big fan of brussels sprouts, but I never thought of preparing them this way. After trying this recipe, I will never eat plain Brussels sprouts again.
