Restaurant (Re)creation: Firefly's Yummy Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Parmesan + Truffle Oil

Firefly Restaurant is another favorite neighborhood gem on my regular rotation. These delicious brussels sprouts pop up on the menu at Firefly every year around this time, and I'm always thrilled when they do.  The recipe stays the same year to year, and the dish is consistently memorable.  The preparation is simple, but the flavors complement each other perfectly, yielding a wonderfully indulgent side dish.  I used a cast iron skillet to complete the (re)creation, since I liked the ones at Firefly so much, but any baking sheet or dish will do.  It may not be the exact same recipe, but I don't think you'll be disappointed...

Serves 4


  • 1 lb brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp freshly shaved parmesan
  • 1/2 tbsp truffle oil, for drizzling
  • salt, to taste


-Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
-Wash, trim, and halve the brussels sprouts.
-Toss the brussels sprouts with olive oil and place in a cast iron skillet or baking dish, cut side down.
-Roast for about 35-40 minutes, or until the leaves start to brown, tossing occasionally.
-Remove from heat and top with shaved parmesan and a pinch of salt.
-Drizzle with truffle oil and serve immediately.
