These perfectly crispy Garlic Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts are easy and quick to put together and only calls for a few ingredients.
Sometimes I wonder if I’m the only one that loves brussels sprouts because I know a lot of people think they are boring and dull. Personally, I think they are truly underrated as a side dish. There are so many ways to prepare them, but my favorite way to serve them are roasted and loaded with garlic powder and parmesan cheese and drizzled with a good olive oil.
I like to roast them for about 15 min at a pretty high temperature just until they start to brown, the browned pieces are my favorite and I usually pick them out first and snack on them.
I know there are a lot of brussels sprouts recipes around that are loaded with bacon bits or toasted nuts, and although I’m the first to say that bacon makes everything better, I wanted these brussels sprouts to be the star here and to only focus on them for a change. I thought the bacon would add too much richness and heaviness to them, so I decided on garlic and freshly grated parmesan cheese as the only additions to my star ingredient.
Anyway, these are brussels sprouts just like I like to eat them, baked to a crisp perfection, garlicky and salty from the parmesan cheese. While they are a perfect side dish and a great addition to your holiday table, I personally just love to snack on them just as they are.
You may also choose to cut them in half before actually roasting them, but my brussels sprouts were already quite baby sized, so I left them whole. What more can I tell you? These roasted brussels sprouts were absolutely phenomenal and these cute tiny cabbage-heads are quickly becoming one of my favorite vegetables.
