Ingredients and Notes

Simple ingredients is all you need for these slightly crispy roasted Brussel sprouts!

  • Brussels sprouts: Use fresh brussels sprouts, not frozen.
  • Extra virgin olive oil: Is great for higher heat plus adds so much flavor.
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper: To season and taste.
  • Parmesan cheese: Freshly grated from a block for best taste.

How to Make Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts

After seasoning and coating with oil, it’s mostly roasting time in the oven. So easy!

Trimmed brussels sprouts on cutting board with a knife.

Trim: Quickly rinse sprouts under cold water. Then cut off the ends with a paring knife and remove a few outer leaves, especially the ones that are yellow.

That’s it! The best part is you do not have to cut them.

Drizzling brussels sprouts on baking sheet with olive oil.

Place on lined baking sheet: Drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. I do not use a separate bowl or plastic bag. I use a silicone baking mat.

Stir well: Stir with a spatula or shake the tray a few times to ensure the sprouts are evenly coated in oil.

Bake at 400 degrees F: for 40 minutes. At about the 30 minute mark, shake the tray to ensure that the Brussels sprouts roast on all sides.

Toss with parmesan cheese: Before serving toss with 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese.

That’s really all there is to roasting perfect sprouts. Your parmesan brussel sprouts recipe should be crispy on the outside and ready to eat as is!

How Long Should I Roast These?

To get perfect crispy outside, yet tender inside sprouts roast at a high temperature of 400 degrees F for 40 minutes.

After 30 minutes, you will want to shake the pan a few times to ensure your sprouts are getting roasted and caramelized on all sides.

Tips and Notes

  • Dark color baking sheet: Cooks faster than aluminum sheet pan. I used aluminum lined with silicone baking mat.
  • Spread in a single layer: This helps prevent them from steaming rather than roasting.
  • Fully coat in oil: This helps them get crispy and caramelized.
  • Cut in even sizes: This may mean a larger sprout needs to be cut into halves.
  • Lemon: Before tossing with Parmesan cheese, squeeze fresh lemon over the sprouts. My favorite combo with roasted parmesan Brussels!
  • Add some garlic: Add 3-4 minced garlic cloves or garlic powder when roasting for a garlic parmesan roasted version!
  • Balsamic vinegar: Is another way we enjoy these! Add just a splash before tossing with Parmesan.
