What makes them so special? It’s all about the roasting. Brussels sprouts are bitter, but when you cook them until they’re golden and crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside, they turn into sweet bites. Roasting brings out the natural sweetness – they taste amazing!
My favorite part about Roasted Brussels sprouts is the crunchy outer leaves. The contrast in texture to the soft and tender insides is so delicious. I can eat them with just some salt and pepper, but roasting them with Parmesan cheese takes them to a new level.
These roasted Brussel sprouts with Parmesan are so easy – the perfect recipe if you’ve never roasted sprouts before. I’m sharing all of my best tips, so they turn out perfectly every time. Once you start making them this way, you’ll never want them another way again!
Ingredients in Parmesan Brussel Sprouts
- Brussels sprouts trimmed and cut in half (if they are large, cut them in thirds)
- Olive oil
- Salt and pepper
- Onion powder
- Garlic powder
- Grated Parmesan cheese
How to Make Roasted Brussel Sprouts
- Coat a rimmed sheet pan with cooking spray.
- Place the sprouts in a bowl and add the olive oil, seasonings, and cheese. Toss to coat them evenly.
- Place them on the baking sheet cut side down, and roast them for 30 minutes at 400°F. Stir them once or twice during cooking so they roast evenly.
Store leftover roasted Brussel sprouts in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They will keep well for three to four days.
I’ve been roasting Parmesan Brussel sprouts for years and have the best roasting method. So be sure to follow the tips so you get a perfectly roasted batch every time.
- Season the sprout really well – don’t skimp on the amounts!
- You should cut them so they are approximately the same size. Usually halving them works, but if they are large, cut them into thirds. This will ensure they all cook evenly.
- Roast them directly on the baking sheet. I don’t recommend lining the sheet pan with foil – the sprouts will get crispier without it! Also, be sure to place them cut-side down so they turn a nice golden brown.
You can use any seasonings you like, so have fun experimenting! But, honestly, even if they’re seasoned with just some salt, pepper, and olive oil, they’re so delicious.
