If you’re one of the many people who head to The Cheesecake Factory when hunger strikes, you may want to hold on to your hat. Although the popular restaurant chain has an expansive menu that you probably still haven’t worked your way through, if you’ve happened to taste their crispy Brussels sprouts and wondered how you can make them at home, you can put your curiosity to rest. The recipe is now available for everyone to try — and it’s super easy to put together.

These crispy Brussels sprouts only call for three ingredients outside of the main star of the dish (the actual sprouts). According to the recipe, all you need are 6 ounces of Brussels sprouts, 1 ounce of Brussels sprout leaves, coarse salt, some crispy bacon, and a bit of their maple-butter glaze.

The one-serving recipe is as quick as it is simple: After you wash and cut your sprouts, add them to your hot oil in your frying pan. Then, you fry your sprout leaves until crispy and sprinkle a bit of salt over them. After they’re done, throw in your pieces of cooked, chopped bacon, and top with your maple butter glaze. In less than 30 minutes, you’ll have a tasty and filling dish that’s suitable for any meal of the day. What a win-win.

While The Cheesecake Factory doesn’t give the recipe for their maple-butter glaze, it is noted that you can pick up your own in “fine food markets” or find the recipe in various cookbooks. If you aren’t able to find the glaze at any place near you, however, you can always try your hand at making our quick maple butter glaze recipe (used to top our maple pecan blondies).
