This is the time of year for all kinds of wonderful roasted vegetables. Cooler weather brings in the best that Brussels Sprouts have to offer. Brussels Sprouts look like baby cabbages (and they kind of taste like them) not because they are baby cabbages, but because they’re part of the same family. With cabbages, we eat the head that grows out of the ground and with Brussels Sprouts we eat the buds that grow along the length of the thick stalk. These little treasures can be quite tasty when prepared properly. These Crispy Parmesan Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts are the cats meow.
This fabulous lightly seasoned Crispy Parmesan Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts combines both red and purple potatoes with Brussels sprouts and Parmesan. The result is flavorful oven roasted vegetables with a crisp Parmesan crunch. Have you ever tried purple potatoes? “The rule of thumb with fruits and vegetables is that the deeper and richer the color, the more nutritious the content tends to be.” You can read all about purple potatoes at Daily Health Post Surprising Health Benefits of Purple Potatoes.
This Crispy Parmesan Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts is quick to come together and clean up is an absolute breeze since you mix it all in a large Ziploc bag. I spray the cookie sheet with some olive oil so the Parmesan cheese will stick to the veggies and not to the cookie sheet.
The leftovers are great reheated in a skillet and my hubby loves them with eggs over easy served over the top of them. I have also added the leftovers to browned Kielbasa sausage and onions! Oh my! I have managed to make myself hungry yet again. Dang it!
