Use good-quality Parmesan for the most robust flavor.
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 teaspoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/2 ounce shaved Parmesan cheese
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°.
Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl; toss well. Place Brussels sprouts mixture in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until edges of Brussels sprouts are lightly browned.
Combine parsley, butter, pepper, and rind, stirring well. Add butter mixture to Brussels sprouts mixture, and toss well. Sprinkle with cheese.
This is the first time I have cooked brussels sprouts, and really only the second time I've ever eaten them, but they were fantastic. I will definitely make this again, although I would halve the recipe for everyday since there are just two of us.
Turkey-schmurkey! My sister brought these for Thanksgiving in 2006, and we all stood around the island eating them while everything else cooked -- there were almost none left for the table! Last year, with the same number of people, I doubled the recipe, and this year my sister will triple the recipe, again for the same number of people. It cannot be overstated how amazingly delicious these are, no alterations needed.
