With only 4 ingredients and some seasoning, this recipe for garlic Parmesan roasted Brussels Sprouts will really be The Best Brussels Sprouts of Your Life! This recipe really couldn’t be any simpler or more delicious.
Who knew Brussels Sprouts could be so exciting? I mean really – Brussels Sprouts! I guess I always thought of them as something that was served steamed or dare I say, boiled to an inch of it’s life. I guess that’s why after bad childhood experiences, many of us wouldn’t go near a Brussels Sprout again.
I think I was in my thirties and living in England before I had Brussels Sprouts as an adult. My in-laws make them every year for Christmas. They have them plain and steamed. With a little butter, they’re not bad, but they are far from exciting.
The excitement came in the form of a comment right here on this site. I had a reader make my The Best Broccoli of Your Life recipe and commented that she loves the recipe and uses it with Brussels Sprouts as well. Now I’ve used the same recipe for different dishes like my Garlic Roasted Green Beans and my Garlic Roasted Carrots, but I never thought to try it with Brussels Sprouts. I tried it on Thanksgiving and let me tell you – they really were outrageous! The caramelized, crispy little beauties really were the star of the side dishes this year (Thank you, Melissa).
Making this dish is super easy. Start with cleaning and trimming the brussels sprouts (if you haven’t bought them cleaned for you).
Halve the brussels sprouts, then place in a large roasting pan a large baking baking sheet.
Add thin sliced garlic to the pan.
Add grated Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and olive olive oil
Toss to coat.
Roast at 400F for 20 minutes.
Scatter with more fresh grated Parmesan cheese and serve.
I’ll let you in on a little secret – I use this little gadget to slice my garlic. I’m telling you, if you don’t have one, you need to get one because it is amazing! You just fill it with pealed garlic, twist and thin sliced garlic! It’s changed how I cook forever! You can get one here on Amazon.com.
Just look at how thin it slices below! It really did make preparing this dish a breeze!
- Make sure to taste and season well before serving.
- For an extra kick of flavor, try adding lemon zest before roasting and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice before serving.
On further inspection, this is not the first roasted Brussels Sprouts dish ever created; Jamie Oliver does a Lemon Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts recipe that looks amazing and there are a few similar to mine too, but in case you’ve missed it – I had to share!
