How To Make Brussel Sprouts On Keto

Check these ingredients first

  • Fresh Brussel Sprouts (not frozen)
  • Shallot (sub with an onion)
  • Bacon
  • Cooking Oil (Avocado Oil, Olive Oil)
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt, Paprika & Garlic Powder

Quick Tips Before Cooking

  • The bacon will cook in the oven. Keeping the recipe easy and quick.
  • Oil doesn’t matter but avoid butter. You want a fat that can withstand the heat without burning.
  • There isn’t any pepper added. The spice will come from the paprika.

Now the preparation and how to bake them

  1. To start, cut the ends off each sprout then split them in half. This can be a little time consuming depending on how many you plan to make.
  2. Next, add them to a mixing bowl. Then, add in a diced shallot, salt, garlic powder, parika and oil. Give this a good toss together.
  3. Now, add to a baking sheet and lay it out. I crowded mine together to keep smaller pieces from burning but lay them out however you’d like.
  4. Then, chop up raw bacon to spread across the top. Lastly, sprinkle 1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese across the top. Shredded can be used or any cheese you like as well.
  5. Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes. Once your keto brussel sprouts get that nice roasted look to them remove them and serve.

Leftovers? Store Keto Brussel Sprouts Like This…

Everything taste better fresh but sometimes enough is enough. Storing is simple! A airtight container and these will keep about 3 days in the refrigerator.

However, freezing brussel sprouts will last a few months. The best freezing method is vacuum sealing without a doubt.
