Ingredients for Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts Fresh is best for texture and caramelization when roasting vegetables. When buying them at the grocery store, try to choose sprouts of the same size. Frozen can be used, but they won’t get as crispy.

Oil I use olive oil since it’s always on my counter but any light flavored oil works just fine. Melted butter or even bacon fat can also be used.

Variations – Try adding in some sliced or cubed sweet potato or turnip, carrot, squash, or another favorite vegetable that tastes excellent when roasted!

Swap up the seasonings and add a bit of balsamic vinegar, red pepper flakes, or lemon zest or add in your favorite herbs like thyme.

How to Roast Brussels Sprouts

  1. Prepare the Brussels Sprouts by removing any loose or discolored outer leaves and trimming off the bottom. Cut them in half if they are large.
  2. Season the Brussels right on the pan (no need to wash an extra bowl!). Toss with oil and seasonings per recipe below. (This can be done right in the pan.)
  3. Place them flat side down and roast in the oven until tender crisp. Smaller sprouts may cook quicker, so check them early.

Tips for Perfect Sprouts

  • If you save bacon grease, use it in place of olive oil for a boost of flavor!
  • Place them in a single layer (cut sides down) on a foil-lined sheet pan for easy cleanup. You can also use parchment paper.
  • You’ll know they’re done when they’re golden brown on the outside, tender, and fragrant.
  • Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and broil for 1 minute if desired.

Extras – Serve them as an appetizer with a couple of favorite dipping sauces like honey mustard sauce, homemade garlic aioli, or a spicy aioli.

Or drizzle with sweet honey or maple syrup, or even a tangy balsamic glaze before topping with bacon crumbles.

Leftover Brussels Sprouts

  • Raw brussels sprouts will keep in the vegetable crisper in the fridge for about 4 days, in a brown paper bag, but be aware the flavor will get a little more bitter as they age.
  • For leftover roasted brussels sprouts, store them in a covered container in the fridge and they’ll keep for about 2 days.
