You've been cooking your Brussels sprouts all wrong… SMASH and fry to make them crispy and delicious

THEY'RE arguably the most controversial part of a Christmas dinner.

But if you aren't a fan of Brussels sprouts, it might be down to the way you're cooking them.


Instead of boiling them until they resemble green mush, one TikToker has come up with an innovative way to make the vegetables crispy and delicious.

Jackie Hartlaub, who posts under the account LowCarbStateofMind on the social media site, shared a video of the cooking method, which began with her shelling the sprouts and popping in the microwave in a bowl of water.

After cooking them in the microwave, she placed them on a baking tray and used the bottom of the bowl to "smash" them.

She then sprayed the sprouts with oil spray, before seasoning with salt, pepper and garlic granules.

Once fully seasoned, she popped them into her air fryer.

"I air fried these at 275 degrees for 10-12 min per side and then cranked the heat up to 350 and AF (air fry) till crispy on each side (maybe 10 more min total)," she wrote.

In response to the video, viewers were quick to praise Jackie for the clever recipe.

"My husband LOVED them and I actually tried a brussels sprout for the first time!," one person wrote, while another added: "I tried them last night! Omg!! My favourite."

However, if you don't have an air fryer, then you could either try frying in oil or grilling.
