How to Make the Cheesecake Factory’s Crispy Brussel Sprouts

This recipe is super easy to make at home and makes a perfect Thanksgiving side dish. All you need are 5 ingredients and an oven!


  • 6 oz. Brussels sprouts, washed and drained well
  • 1 oz. Brussels sprouts leaves
  • Pinch coarse salt
  • 1 slice bacon, cooked crisp, chopped
  • 1 oz. maple-butter glaze (or buy a bottle)


Step 1: Cook the Brussels sprouts

Carefully remove some of the whole outer leaves from the Brussels sprouts and set them aside. 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.

Step 2: Cook the Brussels sprouts leaves

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.

Step 3: Put it all together

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.

Step 4: Plate and serve

Place onto a serving plate or into a bowl. Gently mound the crispy Brussels sprout leaves on top of the quartered Brussels sprouts and voila—you’ve got Cheesecake Factory Brussel Sprouts, ready to be served.
