Smashed Brussels sprouts

Happy Friday friends!

Another week has quickly passed by. It is hard to believe that the first week of April is almost over! I still can’t believe that March is already over!

Earlier this week one of my dear friends posted a video of this amazing looking recipe for Brussels sprouts! I knew I had to make it (with a few tweaks) and share it with you all. The original recipe can be found here.

I love Brussels sprouts and I roast them all the time for my family and my nanny family. This recipe looked SO delicious I could not pass up on trying it out.

I am linking up with my fav girls, Farrah from Fairyburger and Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama for a free for all Foodie Friday themed week.



  • 16 oz Brussels sprouts
  • 1 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp rosemary
  • 1 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup almond cheese (you can also use mozzarella)


  1. Preheat oven to 425*
  2. Rinse Brussels sprouts and add them to a deep sauce pan. Fill the pan with water to cover the Brussels.
  3. Bring the water to a boil and simmer Brussels for 13 min, or until tender.
  4. While Brussels are simmering, create an ice bath in a large bowl.
  5. Once Brussels are tender drain them from the boiling water and put them in the ice bath for 5-10 min.
  6. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon sheet.
  7. Place cooled Brussels on the baking sheet. Drizzle on avocado oil and the spices. Use your hands to ensure all the Brussels are coated evenly.
  8. Smash the Brussels down by using the bottom of a jar. Sprinkle on the cheese.
  9. Bake about 20 min or until the cheese is golden brown.
  10. Enjoy immediately!

    These sound good! The hubby and I made brussels sprouts for the first time about a month ago.We roasted them with olive oil and a tiny bit of bacon grease. Although they smell horrible while baking, they really tasted much better than I’d ever imagined.
