But really, move over, kale.
I don't know about you, but my absolute favorite part of roasting Brussels sprouts is eating the pieces that flake off and get extra crispy when they come out of the oven. If you're like me, then you will love these crisp and delicate little bites, too. They're so simple to make, ready in less than 15 minutes, and are incredibly nutritious. Sure, they're no comparison to a greasy potato chip from a bag, but they're a perfectly delicious alternative that satisfies those salty-crunchy craving. Bring them to your next party, serve with this creamy-tangy Sriracha Mayo sauce, and just watch these little chips disappear before your eyes.
