ROASTED BRUSSEL SPROUTS

I am surprised that there are no brussel sprout recipes on this blog seeing that they are my favorite! Like I am seriously obsessed with them. I’ve been known to make these oven roasted parmesan Brussel sprouts for lunch or even a snack. The flavor, the crunch and char on them, and the ease of preparation make them my favorite. 

If you’re not familiar with Brussel sprouts they are little cabbage like vegetables. You can buy them already trimmed and prepared and ready to use, or you buy the ones that you have to trim and cut in half. Either way, the flavor is similar to cabbage (but better!) and cooking them in the oven gives them a crunch and a char. The best part of these are those charred pieces!

HOW TO MAKE ROASTED BRUSSEL SPROUTS

Combine parmesan cheese, olive oil, garlic powder, salt & pepper with the Brussel sprouts in a bowl and mix together. Spread that onto a baking sheet and let it cook. It’s a no fuss, quick side dish.

The key to the best roasted vegetables is the high temperature and spacing them out on the cookie sheet. If the veggies are touching or on top of each other, you will end up steaming them rather than roasting them. When you spread them out try and make sure that the veggies are not overlapping.

Tips for making the best Brussel Sprouts

  • DO NOT have the brussel sprouts overlapping or touching on the cookie sheet. You want them spread out so that they crisp up, get that nice charred exterior. If they are touching or there are too many crammed onto the cookie sheet, you will end up steaming them instead. 
  • Feel free to use fresh garlic if that’s what you prefer. 
  • You can buy brussel sprouts that are already trimmed OR buy the regular, untrimmed ones. Just make sure that you cut the end off (looks like a stump) and I also like to peel the exterior layer of skin off as it’s usually bad looking. 
  • I know it’s an extra step but you do need to cut them in half.

Even if you *think* you don’t like Brussel sprouts or have never had them, try these and it just might change your mind or make you a fan of them. Let me know if you try them!

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 lbs brussel sprouts (trimmed & halved)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Very lightly spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a bowl, combine brussel sprouts (that have been halved and ends trimmed) with the remaining ingredients. Toss together to coat all the brussel sprouts.

  3. Spread onto the cookie sheet making sure they are not touching.
  4. Cook for 16-18 minutes. Serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

This recipe is so versatile. Add in additional seasonings if wanted.

 

You can use the cheaper grated parmesan cheese in the green can or shredded parmesan cheese that comes pre-shredded, or even shred your own fresh parmesan cheese. 

 

I always use extra virgin light olive oil as the flavor is very mild.

    November 11, 2017 at 8:35 pm These were delicious. Thanks for sharing. My 10 and 12 year old granddaughters loved them too! I used ground parmesan cheese, so had to add extra olive oil, next time I will use fresh grated Parmesan cheese.

      November 13, 2017 at 12:04 pm So good to hear! I could eat an entire batch myself I love these so much 😊 I have used both fresh Parmesan and the cheaper ground Parmesan, and I honestly like them both equally.

        December 27, 2018 at 10:10 pm If it's a side dish then you could safely feed 4-6 people depending on how much they take. I love these brussels so much that I can usually just make a meal out of them :)

    February 26, 2018 at 9:02 am My fiancé is picky when it comes to vegetables, so it’s hard for me to pick out a winner when I cook dinner. When he makes dinner it seems like he just skips the veggies all together. But now that I’ve made them and he LOVED them, he’s started to cook them when it’s his turn to cook dinner. Which I am also LOVING!! thank you for the recipe :)

      October 13, 2018 at 12:44 pm No, and I probably would not recommend it. The store sells packs of already trimmed Brussel sprouts so all you have to do is cut them in half and peel off the outside skin layer (cause it's usually dirty). Buying these packs makes it easy without all the prep work. You could always experiment with frozen Brussel sprouts but I can't say for sure what the outcome would be.

    November 3, 2018 at 11:40 am I love sprouts, but have only ever eaten them as a boiled vegetable with a roast dinner (preferably Christmas dinner LOL). I wouldn't have ever thought to use them in this way - what a brilliant recipe, I will have to try it! x

    November 29, 2018 at 7:36 am I had never made brussel sprouts before and was a little nervous, but these were so delicious! Even my hates-everything-green husband enjoyed them. Roasting veggies is definitely the best way to make a healthy & yummy side dish.

    December 4, 2018 at 2:51 pm Omg, long story short but I take care of my mom who lives with me now, my sister brought a bag of Brussel sprouts the other day and my mom sa id why on earth would she do that, well as kids she made us eat them so my sister said it was just a funny. Anyhoo, I decided to try your recipe that said even if you never liked them you may this way and it was AWESOME!!! Thank you and now my sister is actually going to try them since my mom can't stop raving about them. A wonderful backfire!

    December 29, 2018 at 12:48 pm I have tried all my adult life to like brussel sprouts, which were always boiled or steamed. I could not gag them down, no matter how much butter was on them! Then, one day, my adult son roasted some...holy cow, what an amazing difference! They had a whole new flavor! And the darker/crispier, the better. They are now my favorite roasted veggie.
