Garlic Butter Roasted Brussel Sprouts: Roasting brussels sprouts is my favorite way to cook them and you can’t go wrong with a little garlic butter and parmesan. These brussels sprouts are delicious!
Now as you slice your Brussels sprouts in half you’ll transfer them to a mixing bowl. Some of the leaves may come off but don’t worry about that, just toss those in the bowl as well. Next you’ll take a head of garlic and smash it.
Then we’ll pull out all the cloves here and start trimming off the ends so we can peel these. Now we can’t mince or crush our garlic otherwise it will burn when it’s cooking with the Brussels sprout so you can either leave them whole or you can cut them into little pieces that are a little more bite-sized.
Then we’ll spread these out in an even layer onto an ungreased baking sheet. Next we’re gonna bake these in a 475 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes. depending on the size of your Brussels sprouts. Roasting the Brussels sprouts at a high temperature will create a crispy exterior with a soft interior and it will caramelize all of the natural sugars in the Brussels sprouts. Now during the last 5 minutes of baking sprinkle on about 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese and that will melt and crisp up. Give it five more minutes and then you are ready to eat!
