Cheesy Garlic Brussel Sprouts


  • oven
  • stovetop range
  • microwave
  • pan
  • ingredients:
    • frozen brussel sprouts (hopefully the steam in bag version)
    • olive oil and/or butter
    • mozzarella cheese (recommend tillamook)
    • garlic cloves or pre-diced is ok


  • From frozen brussle sprouts, microwave in a sealed microwave safe container, microwave for half the time the directions say or 3 minutes to steam them, then set aside
  • dice up 3-7 cloves of garlic and set aside
  • heat up a pan w/ olive oil and butter
  • pan fry the garlic for 2-4 minutes over medium heat (until fragrant or very lightly browned)
  • throw in the brussel sprouts, pan fry for a bit (5 - 7 minutes), stirring regularly to coat with garlic and butter. Be sure not to overcook them since they'll be going in the oven later.
  • in an oven safe casserole dish, combine brussel sprouts and cheese
  • cover with an extra layer of cheese
  • cover the casserole dish w/ aluminum foil (so the cheese melts but doesn’t burn)
  • 350 bake in an oven or toaster oven for 15-20 minutes. Check at the 10 minute mark
  • remove the foil
  • crank up the heat to broil 400/450 for 2-4 minutes to brown the cheese


  1. When broiling, keep a very close eye on the dish so the cheese browns but doesn't burn.
  2. Be sure not to overcook in the microwave
  3. Be sure not to overcook in the pan
