Honey Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Here's the Dish

I absolutely LOVE eating my veggies this way! The parmesan cheese adds the saltiness and the honey makes them slightly sweet. Talk about the perfect combination of flavors! I can almost gaurantee that you can get even the pickiest of eaters to not only eat but to love their veggies! If you’ve never tried brussels sprouts (or have tried and didn’t like them), I promise this is going to make you a fan of this green powerhouse veggie!


The estimated total time to make this recipe is 20-25 minutes.


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a sheet pan with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. (I used a cooling rack to get brussels sprouts evenly cooked on every side, and sprayed this with cooking spray as well). Microwave brussels sprouts in bag (or in bowl covered with saran wrap, pierced with a knife to let steam out) for 5 minutes. 


Place brussels sprouts on prepared pan and spray with cooking spray, (this helps seasonings to stick). Season with salt, pepper, and garlic and onion powder. Divide parmesan cheese evenly over brussels sprouts.


Roast brussels sprouts for 12-15 minutes, or until parmesan cheese becomes lightly golden brown. (I broiled mine for the last minute to ensure the parmesan cheese gets nice and golden!) Remove from the oven and drizzle honey evenly over brussels sprouts and enjoy!



1 lbFresh brussels sprouts 1
1 tspSalt
1 tspGarlic powder
1/2 tsp Onion powder
PinchPepper (or to taste)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/8 cupHoney

1 Frozen would also work, but be sure to cut roasting time in half.

Katie's Tip!

This is a great recipe to get kids to not only 'eat', but 'love' their veggies!

I have to say, I have never cooked brussel sprouts and just tried them for the first time at a restaurant last month. Since they were so tasty, I gave your recipe a shot. I have to say… UNBELIEVABLE!

I thought I overcooked because they were slightly burned, but in fact they were perfectly crispy and tasty. Hesitated on the honey and decided to trust you – fantastic! I made them again for lunch the following day. Thanks for the great recipe!

I love Brussel sprouts and this is an awesome recipe. Next time I am going to cut back a little on the salt, but other than that it is perfect.

Instead of honey could you use light agave?

I just tried this recipe, and with my dislike for brussel sprouts, I would have to say they were pretty tasty! I accidentally went crazy with the pepper, but that was the only thing that went wrong when making them!

This is a delicious recipe. I want to try them served at a buffet, movie night or sports night fare with sour cream. Do you think a light blue cheese dip would go well?

Flavor was amazing. I would have cooked at least a minute or two longer in the microwave. They were a little tough but only because they weren’t cooked long enough. Other than that, DELICIOUS!

Maybe throw some hazelnuts or pecans in before roasting for extra flavor.

I just made this and love it. My 15-mo old didn’t try it and my 4 year old is napping, so we’ll see if it goes over well or not. But either way, I love having this as a quick, warm snack idea. Thanks!
