Cheesecake Factory's 20-Minute Crispy Roasted Brussel Sprouts Recipe With Bacon & Maple Butter Glaze

The Cheesecake Factory shared its easy recipe for roasted brussels sprouts and crispy leaves tossed with bacon and Vermont maple butter glaze. Oh, my! How fun to make this delicious restaurant dish at home. Brussels sprouts are in peak season, making this the ideal side dish to serve at your Thanksgiving gathering.

The Cheesecake Factory likes to fry these brussels sprouts, adding a nutty, earthy, almost roasted flavor. The technique also gives them a wonderful crispness. And, they're ready in only about 20 minutes. Enjoy!

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 1


  • 6 ounces brussels sprouts, washed and drained well
  • 1 ounce brussels sprouts leaves
  • pinch of coarse salt
  • 1 slice bacon, cooked crisp and chopped
  • 1 ounce maple butter glaze*

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Carefully remove some of the whole outer leaves from the brussels sprouts and set aside.
  2. Cut the brussels sprouts into quarters and fry them until completely cooked, hot throughout and slightly crispy. Remove from the frying oil and allow to drain on paper towels.
  3. Fry the brussels sprout leaves until crispy. Remove from the frying oil and allow to drain on paper towels. Sprinkle a little coarse salt over the crispy leaves.
  4. Place the quartered brussels sprouts into a mixing bowl. Add the chopped bacon into the bowl. Drizzle the maple butter glaze evenly over the ingredients and gently toss together. Place onto a serving plate or into a bowl.
  5. Gently mound the crispy brussels sprout leaves on top of the quartered brussels sprouts.
