Units Scale


  • 1 lb trimmed and halved brussels sprouts
  • 1/4 cup grated, shredded or shaved parmesan for serving


  • 8 oz finely cubed sourdough or similar bread (3 cups cubed)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

Dressing (no anchovies):

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce (make sure it’s anchovy free if you have an allergy/don’t eat fish)
  • 2 large or 3 small garlic cloves, grated
  • 3/4 tsp dijon mustard
  • 3/4 tsp white vinegar
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F.
  2. Slice bread into 1/4” cubes. In a medium bowl, whisk together olive oil, salt, parsley, pepper, and garlic powder, then add in bread cubes and toss to coat. (It’s easiest to use your hands for this). 
  3. Transfer to a sheet pan and bake for 17-20 minutes, stirring halfway, until light golden brown and toasted. 
  4. Whisk together all dressing ingredients. 
  5. Trim the ends of the brussels sprouts and cut in half (this way, you don’t end up with any huge shreds). 
  6. Using the shredder attachment on your food processor, a mandoline, a knife, shred your brussels sprouts into 1/16” shreds. You can also buy a bag of pre-shredded brussels sprouts at most grocery stores.
  7. Add the brussels sprouts to a large bowl and toss really well with the dressing until all shreds are evenly coated. Top with croutons and more parmesan.
