Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Wash and trim Brussels sprouts. Cut an "X" about 1/8 inch deep in the stem of the sprouts (this helps cook the sprouts more evenly and quickly).

  • In a medium-size pot, cover Brussels sprouts with water; add 1 teaspoon salt and bring to boil. Cover and simmer for 6 minutes or until tender; drain. Be careful not to overcook sprouts.

  • Place sprouts in a small casserole dish. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of melted butter over the sprouts and mix well to coat.

  • Combine Parmesan cheese, dried bread crumbs, garlic powder, black pepper, seasoning salt, and remaining butter and mix well; sprinkle mixture over sprouts.

  • Heat sprouts under broiler (about 4 inches away from heat) for about 5 minutes or until crumb mixture is lightly browned. Serve hot.

I usually don't consider brussel sprouts my favorite vegetable because they have a bitter flavor and after-taste. However I decided to give this receipe a try due to the previous reviews. I have to admit it really dresses up the sprouts and improves the flavor! The crumb topping is really yummy and masks the bitter taste. Great recipe and even my picky husband liked it! If you have kids this is a great way to get them to eat veggies that they normally don't like. As for the the previous reviewer CHADERINKAIA who said "would not reccomend unless you are absolutely a brussel sprout fan"... I think that's a given. No matter how much you dress up a food it's still going to have some of its original flavor. If you hate brussel sprouts don't make this dish because it'll still taste like brussel sprouts! Duh! It doesn't matter how much merlot wine sauce you put on dog food it will still taste like dog food. Read More

I didn't care for these. I thought they were quite garlicy. I made the mistake of using the frozen bag and defrosting them only. I thought they were a little hard and could have benefited from being boiled for 3-5 minutes or so even though they come blanched when frozen. I don't use the broiler too often and almost burnt these. I wish the directions would have said to broil on low. Once these go in the broiler do not leave them. I will not make these again as I am plenty happy with brussel sprouts steamed with a little butter which is a lot less work and tastes great. Read More

Excellent! I could live on this but then again I love veggies! I substituted 1/2 pound baby carrots for 1/2 pound of the sprouts and made it colorful. The kids ate the carrots. Boil the baby carrots about a minutes less than the sprouts. Thanks. Read More

These were sooo yummy!! I added a few splashes of soy sauce to mine. I guess I felt like being creative and boy am I glad I did because it made them taste delicious. My husband and I enjoy brussels sprouts and this is definitely a recipe I'll use again and again. Thanks William for this recipe and for all of the others you have submitted to this site! Read More

I followed another reviewers suggestion and used half brussels sprouts half baby carrots. The topping was really good and did not over power the flavor of the veggies. I ommited half the butter by not tossing it with the veggies before topping. I bet this topping would be good on many other veggies especially broccoli and cauliflower. Read More

Awesome recipe! I never thought I'd love brussels sprouts! Now I do. I made them twice. The first time I followed the recipe exactly. The second time I cut the brussels sprouts before tossing them in the butter & adding the bread crumb mixture. This way they absorbed more of the butter & yummy bread crumb flavoring. Read More

I made this for Christmas dinner. My husband loved it. Mee too. The kids even ate it without complaining like usual with plain sprouts. I haved the recipie and added an extra cup of baby carrots. I didn't use the butter to stir in with the veggies. Just for the topping. Turned out great. Will make this again soon. Read More

These were so quick and easy! They tasted fabulous too! This is now my new favorite way to eat brussel sprouts and I will be making them often. I used seasoned bread crumbs and left out the seasoning salt because I didn't have any but they turned out great. Read More

Absolutely loved this recipe and have already made it twice. So easy to make and so tasty too! Also really appreciated the tip about the "x" on the stems--had never heard of this but it did work. This is a keeper. Read More
