I like finding new ways to prepare brussels sprouts and this is a new way to have from time to time. Lemon makes everything better and with the parmesan they were so good!

I think these are about the best brussels sprouts I have made! Love pepper and lemon so I bought coarse ground black pepper and eyeballed the amount of lemon rind. Added a couple of pinches of sugar and the saltiness of the cheese was a nice touch. This one is definitely a keeper. Made and reviewed for the recipe tag game For Your Consideration.

Apart from DH we are huge lovers of sprouts here. I usually roast ours with Balsamic, but this recipe made for a lovely change - and served with our Sunday roast these sprouts were enjoyed by everyone. Apart from halving the sprouts, because the ones I had were quite small - I made exactly as written, and we really enjoyed the different flavor of these sprouts! These had a lovely buttery flavor with a hint of pepper & lemon - Flavors which we really enjoyed. I personally enjoyed the addition of the Parmesan cheese on top. I will be making this again for sure!
