Foodie Friday: Brussels Sprouts Poppers (V+GF)

I’ve also included a savory dipping sauce with a sweet and spicy kick, perfect for dipping the crunchy Brussels Sprouts in to!

  1. Yum! I discovered Brussels Sprouts a couple years back and have been obsessed with them ever since. I usually cut them in half, steam them, and then finish off in a frying pan with some garlic. This sounds like a fun alternative 🙂

    • Thanks, Alexandra! I’ve been loving them the past few years too! That sounds delicious–I’ll have to make them that way next time! Anything with garlic involved is delicious in my book!

    • Yes, you are not alone! We should form a support group. I honestly think that the people who do not like them just havent eaten properly cooked Brussels Sprouts! I basically did just drink the extra dipping sauce…its so good!

  2. These sound amazing!! I love brussels sprouts. I feel like not a lot of people do but I think they are amazinggg. This recipe sounds awesome!!

    • Thank you! I know I feel like they are the forgotten veggie. If you cook them the right way, they sure are delicious!

  3. yum!!!!! I LOVE brussels sprouts, but I don’t make them often because my husband isn’t the biggest fan. These look so so so good!! Maybe if I make these, he will change his mind about them! 🙂

    • Maybe he will like this version of it–i mean if you get to dip them in this sauce and theyre breaded…how can you go wrong!? 🙂

    • Wow really?! I used to think they were gross growing up but now i love them. I think its just because I never had them well seasoned and roasted! They are so good!

  4. I love brussels! My mom HATES them. Like, can’t even be in the room. They are NOT allowed at Thanksgiving, no matter how much I want to have them.
    PS pickled Brussels are amazing. JSYK

    • I love cabbage too! Sadly I have to limit how much I eat because it doesnt like my stomach all the time. So delicious though!
