Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Fill a large bowl with ice water.

  • Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add Brussels sprouts, reduce heat to maintain a lively simmer and cook until just tender when pierced with a skewer, 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Drain the sprouts and plunge them into the ice bath. Let stand until cool enough to handle.

  • Transfer the sprouts to a clean dish towel and pat dry.

  • Spread the sprouts on a large rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with oil; toss to coat.

  • Space the sprouts evenly on the pan then flatten them with the bottom of a mason jar or sturdy glass.

  • Roast for 10 minutes. Gently flip the flattened sprouts and sprinkle with Parmesan, seasoning and lemon zest.

  • Return to the oven and bake until the cheese has melted, about 5 minutes more.
