Everything Brussels Sprouts (3 Ways!)
Brussels sprouts hit their peak trendiness over the past few years, and while I absolutely adore them after they take a bath in bacon fat, I’m looking for a healthier, tasty alternative so I can enjoy them with a little less guilt. In my opinion, if I want to feel guilty after eating something, it’s going to be a burger…a pizza…or a pint of ice cream. Not a vegetable!!! So, for this recipe, I decided to make my Brussels sprouts flavorful and guilt-free.
To make all of this happen, I coated my Brussels sprouts in honey Dijon mustard and olive oil, then I coated them generously in what they now call, everything bagel seasoning (essentially a blend of minced dried garlic, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, salt, and pepper….I added chives for some extra flare.) As if these aren’t amazing on their own, you can also serve these with a cream cheese, or you can top them with an egg, or you can serve them as a fun side dish with any protein. In this recipe, I include a light Greek yogurt sour cream and onion sauce, which I personally love. The possibilities are endless and delicious!
Everything Brussels Sprouts
- 2 cups Brussels sprouts cut in half
- 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 1/2 tbsp honey dijon mustard smooth, not whole grain
- 1 scallion chopped (should amount to 2 tbsp-1/4 cup)
Everything Bagel Seasoning
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1 1/2 tsp dried minced garlic
- 1 tbsp dried chives can also use fresh, I chose this because you can find it in the spice aisle and reuse for other recipes
- 1 tbsp sesame seeds
- 1 tbsp poppy seeds
- 1/2 tsp salt kosher or sea salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
Optional Sour Cream & Onion Sauce
- 2 tbsp Greek yogurt
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup chives or scallions minced
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp dried onion flakes
- If using an oven, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. If using an air fryer, skip this step.
- In a large bowl, mix together honey dijon mustard and olive oil, until throughly combined.
- Add the Brussels sprouts and mix together until fully coated.
- Add together all of the seasoning ingredients. If you bought your seasoning pre-made, add 2-3 tablespoons until the Brussels sprouts are fully coated.
- If using an oven, spread the sprouts face down on a baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes, until desired crispiness is reached.
- If using an air fryer, set the temperature to 400 degrees and "fry" or "roast" for 15 minutes. If you want them extra crispy, roast for 20.
- While the Brussels sprouts cook, prepare a fried egg to top with. You can also skip this step.
- Serve on a plate and top with chopped scallions. You can also serve with a side of cream cheese or honey dijon mustard. (or you can mix the mustard and cream cheese… mmm.) Serve immediately.
