At Christmas time I have to have Brussel sprouts on my plate. However this year I was reluctant to boil them, they just taste like old socks that way! I'd seen some recipes for them roasted with pancetta, but as a vegetarian that wasn't much good. I adapted the recipe, served them and my 67 year old father declared them the best he'd ever had. And he's had a lot!
- Brussel sprouts
- Unsalted butter
- Parmesan cheese
- Chop the stumps off the Brussel sprouts, peel the outer layers, and cross the bottoms.
- Melt a sizeable knob of unsalted butter in a frying pan on a low heat. Toss in the Brussel sprouts and coat them with the butter.
- Transfer to a baking tray and sprinkle parmesan cheese over the top.
- Cook for 20 minutes on 200°C.
