Not just any old roasted Brussels sprouts, but Lemon Parmesan Crusted Brussels Sprouts!
No, we’re not just roasting Brussels sprouts, we’re crusting Brussels sprouts!
What to Look For When Buying Brussels Sprouts:
- They should be vibrant green with no yellow leaves.
- The stem end should look like they were just cut from the stalk. You may need to do a little trimming, but the end should not be dry and brown.
- The heads should hold together tightly.
How to make Lemon Parmesan Crusted Brussels Sprouts:
- After trimming and halving, give them a good rinse. The water is going to help the flour adhere.
- Combine flour with salt and black pepper.
- Zest the lemons. When zesting lemons, use a good, sharp zester or grater such as those made by Microplane. My mother used to struggle with an old dull grater and when I gave her a Microplane to zest lemons for her amazing lemon meringue pie, she said it changed her life!
- Combine lemon juice and eggs in a bowl.
- Combine Parmesan cheese and lemon zest in another.
- Toss the sprouts with the seasoned flour then transfer to the egg and lemon combination.
- Place in the Parmesan and lemon zest and place on a baking sheet.
- Sprinkle the sprouts with the remaining Parmesan cheese and bake!
