Baked Brussel sprouts and broccoli are a staple in our home. Not only are these two vegetables delicious and healthy, they are also cheap! This recipe is perfect for families of all sizes since these vegetables usually come in either pre-packaged small portions or in bulk – choose for yourself – styles. Below is my favorite take on this simple and easy to do side dish.
Baked Brussel Sprouts & Broccoli with Cheese
1 – Package Brussel Sprouts (usually about 12oz)
1 – Crown of Broccoli
1 – Tbsp. Olive Oil (more if you love it like I do)
1 – Chopped White or Yellow Onion (optional)
½ – Cup Parmesan, Cheddar or other cheese of choice
1 – Tbsp. Paprika
1 – Tbsp. Garlic Powder (or substitute for fresh garlic if available)
Salt & Pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Remove brussel sprouts and broccoli from packaging and rinse well.
Cut the broccoli down to just the crowns (or buy them this way from the store for an additional cost).
Add the broccoli and brussel sprouts to a large baking dish. Coat with olive oil, paprike, garlic, and salt & pepper.
Bake in the oven for about 20 – 25 minutes.
Remove Sprouts/Broccoli and sprinkle with cheese of choice (you can also stick this back in the oven for about 5 min to ensure cheese is melted thoroughly).
Makes roughly 4 servings.
