I kid you not, this is the sole way I eat this dish, every time



16 ounces Brussels sprouts

3 tablespoons olive oil (or melted butter)

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

3 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste

Salt and pepper, to your discerning palate


Preheat the oven to a cozy 400°F and gently prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a light caress of grease.

In a generous mixing bowl, envelop the trimmed and halved Brussels sprouts with olive oil (or melted butter), ensuring each sprout basks in a gentle coat.

Bless the Brussels sprouts with a shower of minced garlic, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning, tossing them in an aromatic embrace.

Lay the Brussels sprouts tenderly on the prepared baking sheet, ensuring they each have their own space to crisp and brown.

Allow them to roast for 20-25 minutes, or until they achieve your desired balance of tenderness and a gentle kiss of browning. Retrieve them from their hot haven once achieved.

While they bask in their residual warmth, grace them with a sprinkle of Parmesan, allowing it to melt and weave its way around each sprout. Test and adjust with salt or pepper as your palate desires.

Serve forth your Garlic Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts immediately, presenting a side dish that entwines health and unexpected indulgence in every bite. May your culinary journey be ever surprising and perpetually delightful!
