Brussels Sprouts with Parmesan Cheese is a wonderfully creamy, cheesy, and savory makeover for ordinary Brussels Sprouts; made with a deliciously flavorful and creamy Parmesan sauce that makes them an utterly irresistible side dish to serve all year long

I admit it, my husband, and I am one of the few that enjoy 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 for me and my better half.



Brussels Sprouts with Parmesan Cheese Brussels Sprouts with Parmesan Cheese Sauce is one of the easiest side dishes to make too! 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 adding 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. Trust me; I have turned a few Brussels Sprout enemies into fans with this recipe. That’s an excellent feeling, too, just knowing they didn’t like them at all until they tasted my recipe for Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Parmesan Cheese Sauce.  That’s a total win in my book.



Brussels Sprouts with Parmesan CheeseLet us talk a little about shopping and cleaning these wonderful fresh Brussels Sprouts. This will be important to prepare this dish, as I do not recommend using frozen Brussels Sprouts for this recipe due to them not tasting anywhere close, in my opinion, after being processed. If you use them, I want you to clearly understand there is a massive difference in taste and quality. They also do not pan roast or oven roast very well at all.



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 the Brussels sprouts for Brussels Sprouts with Parmesan Cheese Sauce

  • 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.

You have to love hearing that!
I don’t know about you, but Brussels Sprouts sound better and better to me by the moment too. Where can you get all that wonderful flavor with those amazing health benefits? Right in this recipe is a good start. Healthy, tasty, and easy to make sounds like a winning side dish in my book. How about you?

    I thoroughly agree! We’re huge brussels sprouts fans, but do not come near us with frozen! No way. No how! This is soon to become our favorite way to eat them! My husband saw them an said, I’m headed out to get sprouts. What do want to eat with them! Thanks for the recipe!

    1. I totally agree with you Beth, in a pinch the frozen can be used–but I would only say the organic and that’s pushing it for me as well. However. some really enjoy them. I just am a fresh veggie fan. Thank you for sharing and tell your hubby I said I hope he enjoyed them too.
