Ingredients and substitutions
Parmesan cheese can be substituted with your favorite shredded cheese you have on hand.
Garlic powder can be substituted with fresh garlic. I recommend thin slicing your garlic instead of mincing, because minced garlic can burn in the oven rather quickly.
Preparing brussels sprouts
Brussels sprouts are surprisingly easy to work with, even if you've never cooked them before. First, you will want to rinse them off. Next, trim the hard stems on the bottom, removing any excess or brown parts. Usually this is a small amount, maybe ¼ inch.
Lastly, peel off any yellowing leaves and discard. If any extra leaves fall off, that's okay. You can roast these with the whole pieces.
If your brussels sprouts are very small, leave them whole. If you are preparing large brussels sprouts, slice them in half for a quicker cooking time.
Seasoning brussels sprouts
The most important part of cooking vegetables is the need to add flavor. Think of vegetables as a blank canvas. Adding salt, pepper, garlic powder, and parmesan cheese will bring tons of flavor to these otherwise plain brussels sprouts.
Want to add something extra? Crumble cooked bacon pieces on top before serving.
