I had no idea I was a fan of brussels sprouts...until TODAY! These were so good that I had to stop myself from eating all of them and was able to save just a few for another time. They were a hit with 2 out of the 3 little kids (though the 1 year old ate one raw, so his approval may be a little questionable). 

I kind of mixed both of the above recipes together. I put olive oil on a cookie sheet (with edges) and cut the sprouts from top to bottom as thinly as possible with my paring knife. I mixed them around for a bit and sprinkled them with sea salt, garlic salt, and pepper.

I threw it in the oven (at 400) for 20 minutes, stirred them around and put them in for another 10. I sprinkled parmesan cheese on them at the end (I think you're supposed to use fresh, but I only ever have the shaker). They came out perfectly! I was so shocked at how good they tasted, and I can't wait to make them again!




Please comment with any other ideas you have for flavors/different techniques! I would love to try it next time!

    1. For some reason I had a preconceived notion that they were gross...but they are so good!

  3. I never ate Brussels sprouts - detested them - until I sampled roasted Brussels sprouts at a local supermarket. I love them roasted, and now eat them that way several times each winter. The Parmesan cheese sounds like a perfect addition. Alana visiting from the UBC.

    1. Yes! The parmesan was good! I bet the garlic cloves would have been too.

  4. I LOVE Brussel sprouts but it took some convincing to get my girls to give them a try. My hubby loves them oven roasted. I cook them in a similar way to this recipe but I add herbes de provence (thyme, rosemary and oregano). I also make them into a delicious soup :-)
