Garlic Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Ingredients:
16 oz (450g) Brussels sprouts, rinsed
3 tablespoons olive oil (or melted butter)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste

Directions:

  1. To prepare the roasted Brussels sprouts: Preheat your oven to 400ºF (200ºC). Trim the bottom of the Brussels sprouts, and slice each Brussels sprout in half, top to bottom. Prepare a large baking sheet (you can line it with parchment paper if you like).
  2. Pat the Brussels sprouts dry with paper towels and place them in a large bowl. Add olive oil, Italian seasoning, garlic, Parmesan, salt, and pepper. Toss gently to coat the Brussels sprouts evenly.
  3. Place the Brussels sprouts on the prepared baking sheet, spreading evenly into one layer. Bake the parmesan Brussels sprouts on the center rack for 25 to 30 minutes – Adjust the time depending on your oven, the vegetables should be golden brown.
  4. Transfer the parmesan roasted Brussels sprouts to a large serving bowl and sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley if you like.

Tips for the roasted parmesan Brussels sprouts:
Make sure to cut the Brussels sprouts into even pieces to achieve a similar texture.
For a nice golden sear, turn the Brussels sprouts cut side down on the sheet pan.
Make sure your oven is at the right temperature for at least 5 to 10 minutes before putting the sheet pan in. This will help to lightly sear the outside of the Brussels sprouts and get the insides soft.
Feel free to add more parmesan to the Brussels sprouts.
To make this side dish more substantial you can add chopped bacon to the Brussels sprouts. Other nice add-ins might be sweet potato cubes, quartered onions, whole garlic cloves.
