  • 2 pounds Brussels Sprouts, ends trimmed and brussel sprouts cut in half
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 4 pieces
  • ¾ cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese


  • Grease the insert of a 5-quart slow cooker with cooking spray or a bit of butter.
  • Add trimmed Brussels sprouts, garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper to the insert of your slow cooker; mix to combine.
  • Arrange pieces of butter over the brussel sprouts.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 2 to 3 hours, or until Brussels sprouts are tender. The bigger the Brussels sprouts, the longer the cooking time.
  • Remove cover and top with Parmesan cheese; stir to combine. Cover for a minute or two, or until cheese has completely melted.
  • Taste for seasonings and adjust accordingly.
  • Serve.


  • Optional: To brown and crisp up the Brussels sprouts, before serving, put them under the broiler for 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned.
