Keto Brussels Sprouts Sliders

Advertisement

These mini keto Brussels sprout sliders are the perfect snack or breakfast to fuel hunger with protein and fiber!

Slider buns get a veggie makeover, ditching the bread in favor of roasted Brussels sprouts. The vibrant sprouts are first roasted to tenderize and lightly brown the outside before being topped with a slice of hardboiled egg and smoky bacon! These 4-ingredient sliders are a great post-workout snack or breakfast to pack in big flavor in a small portion.

When looking for Brussels sprouts, choose the largest ones you can find so they can be topped with the hardboiled egg. Pasture-raised bacon adds meaty goodness and breakfast appeal to the recipe. Hardboiled eggs are a less messy way to add an egg and a dose of protein. The eggs can be prepared a day or two in advance for easy assembly.

When it comes to bacon, look for a pasture-raised variety with no added sugar or preservatives to keep the recipe keto and Paleo-friendly.

Brussels sprouts can become a mini slider for just about anything you can fit in a burger or sandwich with a little bit of planning. Mini beef hamburgers, sautéed onions, grilled mushrooms, and even deli meat can be used to make mini, two-bite Brussels sprout sliders.

Tips

  • Brussels sprouts should be roasted long enough to tenderize them so they are easier to eat.
  • Allow five extra minutes of baking if they are still tough after 20 minutes.
  • The sliders are best eaten right after assembling for the best flavor and texture.
  • This recipe can easily be doubled to serve a crowd.
