I improvised this recipe to use up the smaller Brussels sprouts I snapped off from a full stalk I purchased. The nutty crunch and subtle citrus flavors complement the caramelized sprouts well. I will definitely make this again!

These Brussels sprouts have a buttery nuttiness which is only enhanced by the lemon zest and sprinkling of fresh Parmesan. If you're looking for an easy Brussels sprouts recipe definitely give this one a try. It will be a delicious addition to any dinner table.

Note: This recipe uses baby Brussels sprouts. If you can't find them, cut regular-sized ones in half. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
