Crispy, crunchy, and cheesy roasted brussel sprouts, the perfect side dish for any occasion.
When you roast vegetables and coat them in cheese there becomes zero reason not to eat them. Brussel sprouts on their own are boring and flavorless. With a few added ingredients (three to be exact) we can transform bland brussel sprouts into a delectable side dish.
Soggy boiled brussel sprouts are just not it. Crispy brussel sprouts are where it’s at! Don’t worry I’m about to tell you how to achieve the crispiest brussel sprouts that the whole family will love!
How Do You Get the Crispiest Brussel Sprouts?
Oven temperature matters! Roasting at a low temperature will not work. Minimum recommended temperature to roast brussel sprouts is 400 F.
Bake in a preheated and oiled cast iron skillet. When you preheat the cast iron skillet in the oven it warms it up and allows the brussel sprouts to start roasting on the bottom immediately upon entry into the oven. You’ll also get a more evenly roasted vegetable.
What Ingredients are Needed for Crispy Parmesan Brussel Sprouts?
Brussel Sprouts: One pound of whole brussel sprouts. To prep, cut in half and remove any hard or rough parts, so the stem/base and any rough outer leaves.
Parmesan Cheese: Very finely grated parmesan cheese. I like to use a zester to achieve a dusty cheesy consistency.
Garlic: Minced garlic is preferred.
Olive Oil: Don't be shy with the olive oil, this is what helps make them crispy.
Salt and Pepper

How to Make Crispy Parmesan Brussel Sprouts
Prep: Preheat the oven to 400° F and place an oiled cast iron skillet in the oven to warm up. Prep the brussel sprouts by cutting them in half and removing the hard stems and rough outer leaves. If you have very large brussel sprouts you may need to cut them into fourths.
Season the Sprouts: Place brussel sprouts in a bowl and toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, minced garlic, and parmesan cheese.
Roast the Sprouts: Spread into an even layer in a large cast iron skillet. Careful, the skillet will be hot! Be sure to make sure the sprouts are evenly spread out and not on top of each other, this will aid in making them crispy.
Roast in the oven for 20 minutes. Toss the brussel sprouts and then roast for another 10 minutes until golden brown.
Serve: Transfer to a serving bowl and finish off with a dusting of parmesan cheese. Enjoy served warm.
