Prep 10 min


Cook 15 min


Ready in 25 min


  • 1½ lbs. (700 g) fresh Brussels sprouts, trimmed
  • 2 oz. (60 g) fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 3 oz. (90 g) white cheddar cheese
  • ½   lemon
  • 3½ tbsp (47 mL) olive oil, divided
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) Garlic & Herb Rub
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) panko breadcrumbs
  •  Optional: Toasted bread


  1. Place the Brussels sprouts into the large Steamer Basket. Pour 1 cup (250 mL) of water into the inner pot of the Deluxe Multi Cooker. Place the basket into the Multi Cooker. Lock the lid and select the STEAM setting. Adjust the time to 5 minutes and press START.

  2. Grate the Parmesan with the Microplane® Adjustable Fine Grater. Grate the cheddar with the Microplane® Adjustable Coarse Grater.

  3. Use the Citrus Press to juice the lemon into the 1-cup (250-mL) Silicone Prep Bowl. Add 3 tbsp (45 mL) of the oil and all of the rub, then stir to combine.

  4. Place the oven rack 2–3" (5–7.5 cm) away from the heat source. Preheat the broiler.

  5. When the timer on the Multi Cooker is up, press CANCEL. Press the steam-release button to manually release the pressure.

  6. Brush the Rockcrok® Grill Stone or Pizza Stone with the remaining oil. Transfer the Brussels sprouts to the stone.* Smash them with the bottom of a Measure-All® Cup or the Meat Tenderizer.

  7. Drizzle the oil mixture over the Brussels sprouts and top with the cheese and panko. Broil for 4–6 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and slightly browned. Serve plain or with toasted bread.
