Parmesan Brussels Sprouts are THE BEST ever! They’re a super easy to make side dish that will make a brussels sprouts fan out of anyone.



  • Olive oil spray (see notes)
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 lbs. brussels sprouts, cut in half
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Coat the parchment paper with a few sprays of olive oil. Sprinkle the parmesan cheese evenly over the parchment paper.
  3. Place the brussels sprouts in rows on the parmesan cheese, cut side down, pressing on each one a little to stick it to the cheese. Spray the tops with a little more olive oil and season with the salt and pepper.
  4. Bake the brussels for 20 minutes then let them sit on the counter for 2 minutes before pulling them off the parchment paper.


I find it’s easiest to cover the pan with oil by using olive oil spray. If you don’t have any on hand, you can brush the oil onto the parchment paper.
