            2. How many calories and what is a serving?

            3. How many calories per serving for the Brussels sprouts and Parmesan recipe 

            4. Ridiculous for you to think and post that, the quantity of halved brussel sprouts you demonstrated cook throughly in 17 minutes? You do brussel sprouts who already have a bad rep a major disservice. This recipe sets anyone who tries it up for FAILURE!!! 

              It sure makes me question ANY recipe you put out being so, ridiculously wrong about something so simple!!

              • JJ,

                Sorry you feel that way, but mine were done in 17 minutes. I appreciate you feedback though.

              • Why do you have to be so mean?  Did you try them and they didn’t work?  If so, how much longer did you have to bake them?  I’m sure the size of the brussel sprouts would make a difference (larger may take longer) – but other than that the timing is perfect in a 425 degree oven. 

              • WOW! What an aggressive answer over brussel sprouts! Did you try the recipe? and if so…if they were not done to your liking in 17 minutes – simply cook them longer! or maybe steam them for 5 minutes, add the ingredients and then bake. You must have been hangry (hungry which makes some people angry until they eat) when you answered this! Eat some chips and simmer down!

              • I doesn’t take long for Brussels sprouts if you know how to cook them.. A lot of people over cook. Haven’t tried this but I’m going to.  I love brussels sprouts now that I’ve learned how to cook them properly or allow them to cook.

            5. Look really good what kind of breadcrumbs fresh or dried?? Thank you want to make.

            6. I tried these tonight. They are awesome…. loved them. Yes, they did get done in 17 mins. Thank You!

            7. Looks like a great recipe! I do something similar less the parm and breadcrumbs. We also like to cook them a bit longer… my wife likes her brussels on the crispy side. She’s gonna flip for these!

            8. Do you think this would work using the same method, but with zucchini?

              • Jayln,

                Yes, I think it would work. You may have to adjust the actual cook time so just keep an eye on them so they don’t burn or get undercooked.

                Shannon 🙂

            9. Have you tried doing them in an air fryer and if so please share temperature and length of time because I know air fryers are  more like a convection oven so it might be a shorter and they only go to 400° temperature thank you

            10. Can I freeze these after I cook then?

            11. Can you use frozen ones?

            12. I love my Air Fryer & make a lot of food in it – -But I think it would blow the cheese & crumbs all over the place ! But it might be enough oil in the recipe to keep it stuck to the Sprouts ! When recipe calls for higher temp. Then 400 – I just add a few more minutes ! ( but keep checking it ) Hope this helps you ! 🙈***Example – When I make pizza in it & sprinkle extra seasoning on it -I give it a quick spray of olive oil, so it doesn’t blow all over the place & mess up Air Fryer !
