Parmesan Brussels

This was everyone's favorite dish at my Christmans dinner! I like making a big batch of these as a good vegetarian side dish for holiday dinners. Although many people think they don't like brussels sprouts given their bad connotation, I've had this recipe change many people's minds!

My secret to the crispiest brussels sprouts is using my air fryer and cutting the sprouts into quarters. Ever since buying my air fryer, I will never cook brussels sprouts any other way again. They get so much crispier than when oven roasting and cook so much faster!
