Ever make a recipe and after that first bite you’re like, “OMG! This is so good…but next time I would do this and that differently?”  That’s pretty much how this recipe happened.  I made a brussels sprouts skillet with pancetta.  It was really good, but I was immediately anxious to try it again with a crispy Parmesan and prosciutto topping.

So I got creative with some of my Hungryroot ingredients.  I used Parm Crisps as my topping and ground them up in a food processor.  Then, I took sliced prosciutto and placed it in a skillet to crisp.

Once crispy, I set the prosciutto aside and added Brussels sprouts to the pan with butter, garlic, and lemon.  Before serving, I topped the sprouts with the crumbled Parm Crisps and prosciutto.

Not only is this a delicious side dish for any time of the year, it would make a great side dish for Easter.  Plus, it’s super easy to double if you’re feeding a crowd.  And you’ve got to love that all you need to make it is a skillet!  Easy cleanup for the win!

Crumbled Parmesan Crisps in a food processor.

So let’s get started!  First thing’s first, add the bag of Parm Crisps to a food processor.  Pulse until the Parm Crisps resemble coarse bread crumbs (like Panko).  Remove the crumbled Parm Crisps from the food processor and set aside.

Now, let’s crisp up the prosciutto.  Heat a skillet over medium heat and add the prosciutto to the pan.  Cook for 3-4 minutes, then flip and cook another 3-4 minutes or until crispy.

Place the crispy prosciutto slices on a paper towel lined plate and set aside.

In the same skillet, add the butter to the pan and heat over medium heat.  Once the butter has melted, add the garlic and cook until fragrant, 2-3 minutes.

Add the Brussels sprouts to the pan and toss to coat with the melted butter mixture.  Season with salt and pepper and sauté for 5-8 minutes, or until tender.  Add the lemon juice and zest to the pan and stir.
