  • 8 oz Brussels sprouts
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic (small), crushed
  • 1 dash salt (season as you prefer)
  • 1 dash pepper
  • ½ cup grated mozzarella
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan


  • Trim the end off the Brussels sprouts and peel off any damaged/spotted outer leaves. Cut slightly in to the end of the stem to help them cook more evenly. 
  • Put the Brussels sprouts into a pot of lightly salted boiling water and simmer for around 5 minutes until bright green and gently tender. 
  • Meanwhile, prepare a bowl of ice water and preheat the oven to 375F. Drain the Brussels sprouts and put into the ice water.
  • Drain the Brussels sprouts again and put in a baking dish. Toss with the oil, garlic and some salt and pepper. Use the bottom of a mason jar to gently smash them slightly flat. 
  • Roast the Brussels sprouts for around 10 minutes then top with the two cheeses and roast another 20 minutes until the cheese is fully melted and starting to brown slightly.
