You only need a handful of ingredients to put this recipe together and it’s an excellent side dish for any meal, or even as a whole meal on its own (hey, some of us REALLY like brussels sprouts!).

How to Make Roasted Garlic Parmesan Brussels Sprouts
This recipe is so easy to make you could let the kids have a go at it and it’ll still come out just as delicious! I use the skillet rather than the oven in this recipe, but you can always use the oven if you prefer.
- Heat the butter over medium heat in a medium-sized frying pan
- Add the Brussel Sprouts and fry until browned on the outside and a bit crispy
- Add in the garlic and cook for another few minutes until browned
- Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on top to serve!
Do Brussels Sprouts Need to Be Washed?
You’ll need to wash your Brussels Sprouts as they can often be quite dusty and dirty. But all you have to do is rinse them in cold water for a minute or so until clean.
How Do I Store Leftover Brussels Sprouts?
Your sprouts will keep for up to 3 days when stored in an airtight container in the fridge. If you’d like to freeze them, make sure to freeze the sprouts raw as this doesn’t freeze well when cooked. They’ll keep for up to 3 months in the freezer this way. You can then follow this recipe once the sprouts have thawed.
Tips and Tricks For Making Garlic Parmesan Brussels Sprouts
- Try to ensure the brussels sprouts aren’t too packed on top of each other. Spread them out to make sure they get nice and charred and crispy. If they’re touching or you use a pan that’s too small you’re going to end up with steamed sprouts instead of the roasted variety!
- You can use pre-trimmed or regular brussels sprouts. If you go for untrimmed, remember to take off the dirty outside later and trim off the knob at the end.
- The time they take to roast will depend on the size of your brussels sprouts but average bake time is around 15 minutes depending on how well you like them done. Check them for doneness using a fork to make sure they’re tender.
- I’ve recommended getting medium-sized brussels sprouts for this recipe but you’ll often get a mix of different sizes in a bag. In this case, keep the smaller ones whole and cut the larger ones in half to make sure they get roasted evenly.
