Parmesan’d Brussel Sprouts

Standard

This was an excellent way to enjoy brussel sprouts! They hardest part was having the time to do this!

Ingredients:

1 lb. brussel sprouts, cut in half

Olive oil

1/4 c. breadcrumbs

1/2 c. grated parmesan cheese

Salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400. I used my oven on convection mode – it seems to cook them more evenly and quicker.

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.

Place the sprouts in a foil covered baking sheet.

Cook for about 40 minutes, or until done (check it at 30 minutes).

Tasty and easy! My kind of side dish!

Ingredients:

1 lb Brussel Sprouts, cut in half

2 cloves minced garlic

Olive oil

Sea salt

Cayenne pepper (optional)

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400.

Boil the brussel sprouts for a few minutes until slightly tender.

Drain and put in a bowl. Add the garlic,olive oil and cayenne and mix it altogether.

Place the brussel sprouts in a casserole dish and spread out.

Sprinkle the salt over them.

Cook them for about 20 minutes or until they start to brown. If it’s taking too long to brown after the 20 minutes, turn the broiler on and carefully broil them until brown and crunchy (be careful not to burn them!)
