Tips for the Cheesy Garlicky Brussels Sprouts
- Use brussels sprouts that are still fresh. Using fresh brussels sprouts with brilliant green heads, firm and weighty for their size, and firmly packed leaves will guarantee that you get the maximum taste out of this meal.
- Remove the outer leaves and stem. The leaves of brussels sprouts are generally withered and discolored, and they have the least taste. The meal will be tastier if the inner leaves are used.
- Kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator They can last up to four days in the refrigerator. Simply set the brussels sprouts on a baking sheet and reheat in the oven for about 5 minutes at 350°F.
- I don’t advise freezing Brussels sprouts cause they will lose their texture.
- Do not overcook them.
