Roasted Brussels Sprouts: Love ’em or Hate ’em? When you mention Brussels sprouts, chances are you’ll find a lot of people who don’t like them. But I’ve found that when prepared correctly, they’re some of the most DELICIOUS roasted vegetables out there. Not a believer? Give this recipe a try and let me know in the comment section what you think. The great thing about these roasted Brussels sprouts is that they pair extremely well with other side dishes, such as mashed potatoes, wild rice salad, and Thanksgiving dressing. When Brussels sprouts are mushy, that texture alone is a turn-off for most people. The “secret” to this recipe is making the Brussels sprouts crispy, which really enhances the flavor and texture. And overcooked sprouts get that high-sulfur smell, just like boiled cabbage has. QUICK TIP Brussels Sprouts do look like little cabbages, and they’re in the same general family of veggies. The unusual name, though, refers to Brussels, Belgium, where the veggie s first appeared in northern Europe during the 5th century. How do you make Roasted Brussel Sprouts crispy? The key is to roast them in the oven. Jump to the next section to learn more about how to do that. The important thing here is don’t let the sprouts overlap. If they overlap they’ll steam instead of roast and get soggy. Use two sheet pans if needed. Cover the sprouts in olive oil. This allows them to caramelize better, and as a bonus, allows the panko and Parmesan to stick to them better. How do you roast Brussel Sprouts in the oven? Roasted Brussels Sprouts aren’t as difficult as you might think. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Toss the sprouts in both olive oil and melted butter. The oil will caramelize the vegetables in the oven (make them crispy!), while the butter enhances the flavor. Coat the Brussels sprouts in Parmesan cheese and panko/breadcrumbs mixture, then spread evenly on a tray. Bake for 18-23 minutes until crisp-tender. Can Roasted Brussels Sprouts be made in advance? These are best served fresh and warm, and I do not recommend making these in advance. You can prepare the Brussels sprouts up to a day in advance by washing, trimming, and halving them ahead of time. If you elect to do this, make sure to store the uncooked sprouts in an airtight container in the fridge. What should you pair with Roasted Brussels Sprouts?

Course Side Dish Cuisine American Keyword roasted brussel sprouts Prep Time 15 minutes Cook Time 19 minutes Total Time 34 minutes Servings 4 -6 servings Calories 180kcal Author Chelsea Ingredients▢ 1.5 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved▢ 2 tablespoons olive oil▢ 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted▢ 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt▢ 1/4 teaspoon EACH: garlic powder, freshly cracked pepper▢ 1/3 cup Panko (or breadcrumbs) See Note 1▢ 1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese, separated InstructionsPreheat the oven to 425 degrees F.Trim the Brussels Sprouts and slice large ones in half. Place in a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil and melted butter. Add in the salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Toss gently until seasonings are evenly distributed and sprouts are well coated. They need to have enough oil and butter so the panko and Parmesan will stick; add an additional tablespoon of oil if needed. Finally, add in the Panko and 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese. Toss again to ensure the panko and cheese coat all the sprouts.Transfer to a large baking sheet and spread the sprouts so they aren't overlapping. Some of the panko/Parm will fall to the tray and that's fine, as long as most of the sprouts are well coated in it. If not, sprinkle the mixture on the sprouts.Bake 18-23 minutes or until sprouts are lightly browned, tender, and the cheese is melted. (This may vary, depending on actual oven temperature and size of sprouts.) Remove from the oven and sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese on the hot sprouts. I like to take some of the toasted Panko from the tray and add it on top of the Brussel Sprouts! Video Recipe NotesNote 1: I think panko makes all the difference in these sprouts, but breadcrumbs will also work. You can leave these out either entirely, of course, if you prefer.
