  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Place the halved sprouts in a large bowl, pour over the melted butter and toss to coat. Add the breadcrumbs, Parmesan, thyme, cayenne pepper (if using) and seasoning, and stir together.
  2. Tip the sprouts onto a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake for 12-15 mins, until the sprouts are cooked through and the crumb coating is a deep golden colour.

Tip: Brussels sprouts vary in size, so if you have larger ones you may need to quarter them before coating and baking, or increase the oven time by 5-10 mins.
