Breaded Brussels Sprouts

1 1/2 lbs. brussels sprouts
1 tsp. salt
4 Tbsp. butter, melted
4 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
4 Tbsp. dried bread crumbs
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
or regular fine black pepper
1/4 tsp. seasoning salt

Wash and trim brussels sprouts. Cut an "X" about 1/4" to 3/8" deep in the stem of the sprouts; this helps to cook the sprouts quicker. In a medium size cooking pot, add sprouts and cover with water, add 1 teaspoon salt and bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 6 minutes or until just tender, do not overcook; drain and discard water. Place sprouts in a six-cup or a 9" x 9" oven-proof casserole dish. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons melted butter over the sprouts and mix well to coat.
Meanwhile, combine parmesan cheese, dried bread crumbs, garlic powder, black pepper, seasoning salt and remaining butter and mix well together. Sprinkle mixture over sprouts.
Heat sprouts under the broiler in the oven until crumb mixture is lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Serve immediately with your main course.
Serves 12.
