Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts are perfect for the holiday table, yet easy enough for a weeknight side dish.
I’ve mentioned to y’all many times, and left comments on many others blog posts that I lucked out in the kid department when it comes to vegetables. My girls have always eaten pretty much everything that they are served. Which to me is kinda crazy, considering I grew up as one of the pickiest eaters ever. I wouldn’t eat anything green, unless it was iceberg lettuce. I was forced to eat green beans at one point, and almost got sick to my stomach. That was the last time I was made to actually “just try it.” Ha.
When my girls were introduced to solid foods, I started experimenting with ALL the vegetables in the produce aisle. Including ones that I wouldn’t have even looked at growing up. Maybe this is the reason that they eat everything? I don’t know what the magic is to get your kids to eat green veggies, other than having them take a little bite, and prepare them in all sorts of ways.
Eating them all sorts of ways may give your kid the chance to find a way that they actually like them. Brussels Sprouts are one of those veggies that most all kids turn their noses up at. Heck, I only eat them certain ways….remember…I was uber picky growing up, and honestly, I still am. One of the only ways that I will eat these green orbs is by roasting them. I have a couple of roasted sprouts recipes, and these are really the only ways that I eat them. When I tossed in freshly grated parmesan cheese, and crunchy seasoned bread crumbs, I knew that this would be another great recipe that I would love.
This recipe is simple enough for a weeknight side, and perfect enough for the holiday table! If you love sprouts, you’ll love these. If you have a kid that doesn’t love sprouts, try preparing them in a different way, you may be surprised that you run across one that they like!
- 1 1/2 pounds Brussels Sprouts, washed, trimmed, and halved
