I had never been a big fan of Brussels Sprouts. I had tried them years ago, in fact I think the ones I tried were even fried in some fatty batter, and I still didn't like them!
But this past weekend, I picked up a few at the local farmer's market and made a pretty bomb.com little snack out of them if I do say so myself!
You can get super creative with them. If you like spicy, salty or even sweet snack options, I'm sure with a few attempts you could achieve any of those with Brussels Sprouts!
But with my recipe below, I'm more than sure your little taste buds and tummies will be quite content. Enjoy! :)
Britaña's Roasted Brussels Sprouts
What you'll need:
Grated Parmesan Cheese, Olive Oil Cooking Spray, Black Pepper and Pimentos!
Preheat your oven to 400°F
Rinse your Brussels Sprouts in cold water and tear off any leaves that don't look appealing. Also, trim the stems!
Next, you'll want to cut the Sprouts lengthwise, from stem to the top.
I then lined my baking sheet with foil (because I hate getting my pans dirty!) After I lined it with foil, I sprayed the pan with Olive Oil cooking spray. Then I lightly sprayed the top of each Brussels Sprout.
After coating every Sprout with the spray, I sprinkled grated Parmesan Cheese on each one! Grated Parmesan Cheese is pretty forgiving, so I wasn't hesitant to sprinkle on as much as I wanted!
Next, I sprinkled Black Pepper on each Sprout as well. (You can try any spice that your taste buds desire! Mrs. Dash has GREAT options!)
Yummy!! They're ready to be put in the oven!!
Let them bake for 30 minutes!
Now it's time to add a little finishing touch before they're completely done baking!
Add Pimentos to the top of each Sprout!
And put the Sprouts back in the oven for 5 more minutes! Then you're done! Let them cool a few minutes before serving!
