- 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

Place the Brussels sprouts into the large Steamer Basket. Pour 1 cup (250 mL) of water into the inner pot of the Quick Cooker. Place the basket into the Quick Cooker. Lock the lid and select the STEAM setting. Adjust the time to 5 minutes and press START.
Place the oven rack 2–3" (5–7.5 cm) away from the heat source. Preheat the broiler.
When the timer on the Quick Cooker is up, press CANCEL. Press the steam-release button to manually release the pressure.
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.
