What goes go good with spicy brussel sprouts?

Brussel sprouts of any kind go excellent with meat and potoates! When the brussel sprouts are spicy though, they are the star of the show when it comes to being an addition to a basic meal of meat and potatoes. Sometimes I bring brussel sprouts for my lunch to work just to eat as a main dish because I love them so much!

Variations of spicy brussel sprouts:

  • oven roast-you can make spicy roasted brussel sprouts in the oven if you do not have an air fryer! Follow the same directions, but put them in the oven instead of air fryer. You can broil them for about 2 minutes on a lower rack and get the same effect.
  • add a protein-spicy brussel sprouts with bacon are a show stopper! Bacon is the most obviously protein to add, and they taste pretty good that way. Just add cooked bacon to the mixture in the bowl.
  • addtional spices-if you need additional spices, add more red pepper flakes or garlic! If you what different spices all together, finding what spices compliment brussel sprouts can be difficult. You just have to try to find something that works for you!
