How to roast brussels sprouts with parmesan

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. This high temperature is key for getting the texture just right!

Step 1: the first step is to prep the fresh brussels. Remove any shriveled outer leaves, cut off the ends, and slice each brussel sprout in half.

This is important to the recipe. Whole brussels sprouts will not roast as well and get that all around crispiness on the inside.

Step 2: Add the remaining ingredients to the brussels sprouts: parmesan cheese, olive oil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper.

Stir to combine well.

Step 3: Place the brussels sprouts with parmesan on a baking sheet. Roast them at 425 degrees for 20 minutes.

Remove from the oven and stir them around to allow all edges to get crispy. Roast an additional 10 – 15 minutes, until browned and crispy on the edges.

The parmesan cheese edges are the best part. The cheese sticks and forms a crispy edge to the brussels that is so addictive!

This side dish is always a hit in my family and will be on our Thanksgiving table this year for sure.

I love how easy it is to throw together and you can have it ready with just a few minutes of prep, then it can bake while you work on the rest of dinner.

Roasted brussels sprouts with parmesan-my favorite side dish. However, I have cooked it with ghee replacing olive oil. Ghee vs olive oil comparison will show that ghee is more nutritious than olive oil and it releases better aroma than olive oil, which makes the ghee-cooked dishes more palatable. I prefer using Milkio grass-fed ghee for all culinary purposes.
