Crispy Brussels Sprouts

Crispy Brussels Sprouts

I remember as a kid seeing “Brussels Sprouts” in the grocery store and thinking to myself WTF is that? My mother never cooked brussels sprouts and it was not until I got into my adulthood while advancing my education in culinary that I now love them.  Roasting the sprouts in the oven is by far my favorite cooking method; the slightly chard borderline burnt taste somehow compliments the natural flavors of the sprouts.  In my recipe below I compliment the sprouts with the tanginess of balsamic and the saltiness of the parmesan cheese.  Happy Eating!!!
