Garlic Lemon and Parmesan Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Garlic Lemon and Parmesan Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Don’t we all remember those times when we were young that our parents or grandparents were trying to get us to eat our brussels sprouts? It’s funny, kids and brussels sprouts, I think it’s just one of those things as we grow our taste in food changes. We crave more depth of flavor vs. that plate of pasta with butter and salt. You will love the delicious flavors in these brussels sprouts! Roasting them in the oven enhances them times ten and the added flavors of fresh lemon, garlic and parmesan, well you all know what that simple combination can do. Wonders, right?

This is a healthy side that is easy to make and sure to please. Next time I want to try these with dried cranberries and pecan pieces (while omitting the garlic, extra lemon spritz and parmesan) for another exciting flavor combo. If you do go that route, add 1 Tbsp brown sugar when tossing with oil and lemon, then add 3/4 cup dried cranberries and 1/3 cup chopped pecan pieces during last 5 minutes of roasting (and leave out those listed ingredients mentioned just prior).

Enjoy!

  • Nicola: I am really disappointed that you just seem to allow comments that are extremely enthusiastic. shame on you. November 19, 2014 at 1:30pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: You should go through my whole recipe archives because that’s entirely not true. The negative are far fewer than the positive but I always post them anyway, just like I’m approving your comment. But thanks for the shaming! November 19, 2014 at 11:26pm Reply

      • Nicola: Well,

        some time before I posted a comment that was asking what to do to prevent the brussels sprouts from getting dry – what happened when I tried your recipe. That comment was never posted. December 4, 2014 at 10:54am Reply

      • Nicola: ”

        Nicola: I tried it out today and they looked GEORGEOUS, just like on your pictures. The taste was very good, but unfortunately, they were quite dry – is there any trick to prevent them from drying out while roasting? Thank you very much in advance for your help!!!

        • Jaclyn: You can add more oil or you could roast at a lower temperature. Hopefully that helps, sorry the comment must have gotten marked as spam, sometimes the program I have installed marks some that aren’t supposed to be automatically. December 4, 2014 at 3:31pm Reply

  • Lissa: Wow – I can’t believe you are upset at a lack of negative comments. Says a lot more about you as a person than it does Jaclyn. Shame on YOU Nicola. There is plenty of negative stuff on the internet. How nice to see a place where people are appreciative of a bloggers efforts and say so. I am sure she would welcome constructive comments but her recipes are beautifully presented in the photos and worthy of praise. December 2, 2014 at 12:51pm Reply

  • Patty: I love all your recipes and plan on making this one for Thanksgiving this year. Question for you – since Thanksgiving usually means limited oven cooking availability, can you recommend a way to keep these warm by dinner time? Can I prepare them in the oven first and then reheat them in a pan (if so, any ideas on how long to cook it in the pan?)

    Thank you so much for all your recipes (a personal favorite is the caramel apple cheesecake) November 20, 2015 at 6:09pm Reply

  • Dev Jordan: This looked so good, that I made this for supper. It was delicious! It even got approval from 2 of my 3 kiddos :) It turned out perfectly. I was surprised at how simple it was to make. I will definitely be making this again! January 15, 2016 at 5:11pm Reply
