Brown Buttered Brussel Sprouts

Servings 4 -6 servings


  • 1 lb brussel sprouts trimmed and halved
  • 1 stick butter cut into chunks
  • the juice of half a lemon
  • freshly grated Parmesan for garnish
  • freshly chopped parsley for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Place sprouts in a baking dish, cut side up.
  • Roast for about 50 minutes or until the edges of the sprouts are nicely browned.
  • Place the butter in a deep skillet over medium heat.
  • Not stirring or moving the pan, allow the butter to come to a foam.
  • Watch for the foam to subside and listen for the butter to stop sizzling. Remove once this happens. The butter should change to a light amber brown color. Remove from heat.
  • Pour the butter over the roasted sprouts once they are done.
  • Drizzle with the lemon juice, top with Parmesan and parsley.
