Parmesan Roasted Brussel Sprouts

I didn’t start eating Brussel sprouts until much later in life and I’d like to think it’s because my tastebuds hadn’t quite matured, however, I think it’s more I matured.

My palate was relatively bland and thus moving to New York City after graduating allowed, and sometimes forced, me to expand my food preferences.

Brussel sprouts fell into this category of newfound favorite foods and now I prepare them often. Not only do I now find them delicious, but they’re easy to prepare.

There are many ways to prepare them and this parmesan roasted version is quickly becoming a favorite.

How to Trim Brussel Sprouts

Brussel sprouts can be roasted whole, however, they tend to have a slightly softer texture when halved. To trim the brussels sprouts use a knife to slice off the bottom stem. Remove any brown or wilted leaves and then cut in half from top to bottom.

Equipment Used in Making this Recipe

  • Parchment Paper: I can’t stress always using high-quality parchment paper enough. I’ve ruined countless recipes because I bought a cheap version.
  • Rimmed Baking Sheet: I only have 1 rimmed baking sheet being a minimalist, and it’s all I’ve ever needed.
  • Paring Knife: When cutting small vegetables like Brussels sprouts I prefer to use a paring knife like this one.
  • Cutting Board: This Joseph cutting board is one of my favorites. I use mine all the time.
  • Fish Spatula: This type of spatula is great for tossing ingredients on a baking sheet as well as using when cooking fish.

How to Bake Crispy Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Roasting Brussel sprouts is one of the easiest ways to prepare the vegetable, but getting the perfect crispiness can sometimes be tricky. Below are a few tips that apply to this recipe.

  • Cutting the sprouts in half will help them to cook more evenly in this recipe and result in crispier Brussel sprouts.
  • The breadcrumbs and parmesan combined will add extra crispiness to these particular sprouts.
  • Roast the Brussel sprouts for 25 to 30 minutes only at 400℉. Cooking them any longer will cause them to dry out.
