I admit it my husband, and I am one of the few that enjoys Brussels Sprouts with vigor; with one exception, please do not attempt to serve me frozen Brussells Sprouts of any kind. I want them fresh as can be. The taste of fresh compared to frozen is immensely different from me and my better half.

It’s as simple as cleaning up fresh Brussels Sprouts, halving them, adding a bit of olive oil, placing them in the metal pan, seasoning them, and pan-roasting them on the stovetop until they are lightly caramelized on the outer edges, then add the Parmesan Cheese Sauce and cook the Brussels Sprouts a few more moments. How simple is that?

These Brussels Sprouts are so flavorful tasting. Even if you aren’t fond of plain Brussels Sprouts, you might find yourself loving this recipe.

Purchasing Brussels Sprouts

  • Look for the Brussels sprouts that have tighter heads; avoid any that have several loose leaves.
  • Fresh Brussels Sprouts should be very firm without any soft spots or dark marks.
  • Avoid purchasing any Brussels Sprouts with spots, blemishes, gashes, or damaged leaves.
  • Smaller Brussels Sprouts are sweeter, and the larger ones tend to taste more in line with green cabbage.

Cleaning

  • To clean Brussels sprouts, rinse them off in cold tap water to remove any dirt or undesired impurities on the produce.
  • Using a paring knife, cut off the tip of the Brussels Sprout stem and discard.
  • Remove any of the outer leaves that have blemishes, brown spots, or gashes; don’t be concerned if a few more leaves fall off during the process.
  • Place the Brussels Sprouts on a clean cutting board and slice the Brussel sprout in half from the top to the bottom of the Brussels Sprout.
