Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays, you are surrounded by your friends and family, catching up, and eating the best food! We are thrilled to have Jessica Potts of A Happy Food Dance to share her amazing Brussels Sprouts Nachos recipe with us today. These nachos look amazing with the variety of colors and are seriously delicious, we will be making these way after the holidays! Bonus, you can eat these guilt-free because they are veggie based instead of the typical nachos, perfect! Read on below for Jessica’s recipe:
“Thanksgiving leftovers are the BEST leftovers! I mean, who can resist a turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce sandwich with a drizzle of gravy? My mouth is watering just thinking about it! These Thanksgiving Brussels Sprout Nachos are going to give your leftover sandwich a run for it’s money because these are DELISH!
Start with a layer of crispy, oven roasted Brussels Sprouts, add a blanket of crispy leftover stuffing and top that all with gooey, melty cheese. I garnished with pomegranate seeds, walnuts, and spicy jalapeño slices, but you could easily add your own favorites.
Not only are these perfect for your leftovers, but they make the best game day snack. Instead of eating all those chips, you’re just eating veggies, so be sure to grab yourself an extra serving!”
