Carmelized Brussels Sprouts

Day 25 of the 30 Day Tasty Vegetable Challenge

Today's recipe comes from Nick, of the blog A Girl Named Nick: Grammatically Correct Cooking, which offers delicious recipes with a wry sense of humor. This recipe is another brussels sprouts  recipe because you can never have too many tasty brussels sprouts recipes in your repertoire - and I know a few "purists" were put off by the bacon in the previous brussels sprouts post although I thought it was delicious.

Caramelized Brussels Sprouts
by A Girl Named Nick
1 lb. brussels sprouts, ends trimmed, halved
1-2 T olive oil
kosher salt, pepper
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
Toss the brussels sprouts with the olive oil, kosher salt and pepper. Roast at 400 degrees, stirring occasionally, making sure that all sides get browned and crispy as evenly as possible. Trust me, these are the best bits. This may take anywhere from 20-30 minutes, depending on how small the sprouts are. Remove from oven, place in a large bowl, eat all the browned and crispy bits before anyone else can get to them, then toss the remaining sprouts with lemon juice, parmesan, and extra salt.
Believe it or not, these are better cold.
