  • Trim Brussels sprouts and discard any yellow outer leaves.

  • Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add Brussels sprouts, cover, and steam until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain well, pat dry, and transfer to the baking sheet.

  • Toss Brussels sprouts with olive oil, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Spread out evenly on the baking sheet. Use a Mason jar or other heavy object to press Brussels sprouts into flat patties.

  • Roast in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Cover with Parmesan cheese. Broil until cheese starts to brown, about 2 minutes.

This is actually a question as I haven't made them yet but you need to "star"rate them before you can post anything. Is there any reason why the sprouts aren't cut in half and then smashed? Seems like they would get even more crispy. Read More

I really liked it simply as an alternative way to making Brussels sprouts. Roasting really brings out a new flavour from boiling or steaming. I didn't smash them though. I tried smashing one but I didn't feel it did much so I just roasted them. Cut them in half one time. Delicious. My new way to eat them. Read More

I really liked these and they were pretty easy to make. I forgot to buy "real" parmesan and had to use the stuff in the can. I think it'd be better shredding the real deal. Don't skimp on the red pepper flakes. Next time I will use more than the recipe call for. Read More
