These Crispy Brussels Sprouts Chips are easy to make and SO delicious even your kids will love them!
This recipe has been a long time coming. I have to give all the credit to my husband, Tim. It was YEARS ago now that he first suggested I make Crispy Brussels Sprouts Chips.
When I first started roasting Brussels Sprouts, he noticed how much he loved the crispy outer leaves the best. Then, our son Luke would ask for more of the “chips”. So one day Tim said, “Why don’t you make a batch of just the Brussels Sprouts Chips?”
I finally listened.
I only wish I’d listened sooner.
Don’t make the same mistake I did. I know Brussels Sprouts aren’t as universally hated as they once were, but if you’re still slow to come around, give these a try. I am convinced that these Crispy Brussels Sprouts Chips can bring over even the haters.

You don’t even need a fork. You can eat these crispy little flakes with your fingers, and that makes my kids happy. Okay, it makes me happy, too.
To make these, it takes one extra step more than if you were just roasting them regular style. Trust me, it doesn’t take that much longer and it’s totally worth it.
All you have to do, after you cut off the tough end and cut it in half, is peel away the outer leaves until you get to the core of the sprout. Don’t throw those middles away–you can totally use those for roasting and they are still delicious.
You want to make sure you give the leaves plenty of room on the baking sheet. If you overcrowd them, they won’t get as crispy. I recommend two sheets for the amount in the recipe. Here are some before and after shots of the Crispy Brussels Sprouts Chips:
