Baked Brussels sprouts

The most important and enjoyable religious festivals are perfect occasions to show off your skills in the kitchen, creating dishes that please everyone regardless of their predilections or personal taste. That's why beyond the classic dishes based on roast meat or game, for Christmas you could also opt for specialties based on vegetables, such as Brussels sprouts. Like potatoes, mushrooms or other vegetables typically cooked or boiled, if they are baked in the oven they gain an even more inviting taste. Brussels sprouts, with their delicacy, are a delicious vegetable side dish worthy of any occasion. Discover how to make them with us ...

Peel the sprouts by removing the outer yellowing leaves and any excess stems. Cut them in half and rinse, then boil them in salted water for 10 minutes. Drain and place in a greased roasting pan or baking dish. Season with a little salt and a few knobs of butter, then sprinkle with some breadcrumbs and parmesan. Bake at 180°C for 20 minutes; serve hot.

Brussels sprouts are especially good when picked at the right moment, when compact and mature without withered leaves; to cook them successfully it is preferable that they are more or less the same size.
Despite their name indicating the main area of origin, Brussels sprouts are also grown in the Netherlands and France.
