A Good Vegetable Side Dish for Kids
I know many kids hate broccoli, asparagus, and brussels sprouts, so I make it a personal challenge to find ways for my kids to not only eat these but crave and ask for them.
They are after all some of the healthiest veggies around. With the parmesan cheese and panko bread crumbs this recipe is definitely kid-friendly. A little cheese and a bit of crunch go a long way with kids!
How to Oven-Bake Brussels Sprouts:
The preparation and cooking process of this brussels sprouts recipe is pretty simple.
I added the loose leaves, breadcrumb, panko, and garlic about halfway through the cooking process to avoid burning.
Step 1. Prepare the Brussels sprouts
Trim the ends of Brussels sprouts and discard any tough or discolored outer leaves. Rinse in a large bowl of cold water and drain.
Halve or quarter the brussels sprouts into uniform pieces.
Step 2. Add seasoning
Place the Brussels sprouts on a large sheet pan. You can discard the loose leaves or set them aside for later. Season with kosher salt and black pepper. Drizzle with oil and toss to coat.
Step 3. Bake the Brussels sprouts in the Oven
Transfer the baking pan to the oven. Roast the brussels sprouts for 15 minutes.
Step 4. Prepare the breadcrumb and parmesan
In a bowl, mix panko breadcrumbs with parmesan, and garlic. Stir to combine.
Step 5. Add the breadcrumb mixture
Remove the sheet pan from the oven. Add the reserved loose leaves and breadcrumb mixture into the pan, toss to coat.
Transfer the baking sheet back into the oven and continue cooking for 15-20 minutes or until they're tender and nicely browned. Shake the pan halfway through cooking.
FAQ & Tips:
Select brussels sprouts that are bright green, without any browned spots or yellowing leaves.
Smaller Brussels sprouts are more tender, milder, and sweeter than larger ones. They can be cooked whole. Larger Brussels sprouts (about an inch around or larger) should be halved before cooking.
For a crispier result, use a large baking sheet, and do not overcrowd the pan. To make the most out of their sweet roasted flavor, halve or quarter the brussels sprouts and roast them with the cut side down.
Discard any discolored loose leaves. If they are nice, you can cook them. They get crispy when they roast in the oven. Just be sure to add them about ½ to ¾ of the way through cooking to prevent burning.
Store the leftover cook brussels sprouts in an airtight container. You can keep the leftover in the fridge for 3-4 days or up to 2 months in the freezer.
