Smashed Brussel Sprouts
This delightful Keto friendly Smashed Brussel Sprouts can be a lovely side dish or serve as the main dish to a vegetarian meal.
Boil & Smash
Smear with Mayo
Bake & Broil
The smashed Brussel Sprouts are essentially cooked at this point. However, we want to take it to the next level of goodness.
Simply place in the 375* for about 15 minutes to fully melt all together.
At the end of cook time turn the oven to broil and brown/crisp the cheese for 1-3 minutes.
This recipe stores and reheats beautifully from the fridge. I have had these in my fridge for up to 4 days and then reheated in the microwave for a quick side dish for dinner or a lunch on the run.

Smashed Brussel Sprouts
- 1 ½ lb brussel sprouts ends trimmed
- ½ tsp red pepper flakes
- ⅓ cup mayo
- ½ cup cheese shredded cheddar mix
- Preheat oven to 375*
- FIll a large stockpot with water and 1 tbsp salt to a boil. While water is coming to a boil, trim the woody/hard stem ends off the brussel sprouts. For sprouts larger than a golf ball you will cut them in half through the stem to keep the sprout half intact.
- Place trimmed sprouts into boiling water for about 10 minutes, or until fork tender.
- Drain the sprouts from the salted water and then transfer to a baking/casserole dish. Using a flat bottom glass gently smash each sprout.
- Sprinkle the entire casserole dish over the smashed brussel sprouts with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.Then, using a butter knife, place/smear a small amount of mayo on top of each of the smashed sprouts. Next, top each smashed sprout with a little bit of shredded cheese.
- Place casserole dish in 375* oven for 15 minutes. After the initial cook time, turn to the oven to broil for 1-3 minutes to brown and crisp the cheese.
- Remove from the oven, serve and enjoy.
