Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe

Ah, roasted brussels sprouts. I just love how simple it is to make roasted vegetables like these brussels sprouts. It is my favourite way to serve side dishes in the cooler months.

In the fall, I buy local brussels sprouts and roast them in the oven at least a few times a season. Brussels sprouts are high in antioxidants, vitamin K & C, fibre and Omega-3s. Now that’s a whole lot of goodness in such a small vegetable package. 🙂

Roasted brussels sprouts is a winning side dish that is easy enough for busy weeknights and fancy enough for the Holidays. You’ll want to try this recipe!

How to Make Roasted Brussels Sprouts

  • Trim brussels sprouts: Quickly rinse the brussels sprouts under cold water. Then cut off the ends with a paring knife and remove a few outer leaves, especially the ones that are yellow. That’s it!

  • Place on lined baking sheet: Drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. I do not use a separate bowl or plastic bag. I use a silicone baking mat.
  • Stir well: Stir with a spatula or shake the tray a few times to ensure the brussels sprouts are evenly coated in seasoning.

  • Bake at 400 degrees F: for 40 minutes. At about the 30 minute mark, shake the tray to ensure that the brussels sprouts roast on all sides.

Pro Tip: Dark colour baking sheet cooks faster than aluminum. I used aluminum lined with silicone baking mat. You can also roast mini cabbages in large cast iron pan but only 1 lb, half the recipe.

Variations for Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Oven roasted brussels sprouts are extremely versatile. You can add flavors based on your taste, pantry and fridge ingredients and let’s face it – what day of the week it is:)

  • Parmesan and lemon: Grate fresh real Parmesan cheese over the brussels sprouts in a bowl. You can also squeeze fresh lemon. My favorite combo!
  • Balsamic glaze: Drizzle with store-bought balsamic glaze.
  • Honey garlic: Drizzle with honey and add minced garlic before roasting. All to taste. I also like to add a bit of grated fresh garlic to already roasted brussels sprouts.
  • Maple syrup and heat: Drizzle with maple syrup and sprinkle with a bit of red pepper flakes before baking. Sweet with heat version. All to taste.
  • Bacon: Cook some diced up bacon in a skillet on medium heat. Then add to roasted brussels and toss.

Need an idea for your leftover Brussels? Include them on a wintry charcuterie board with a dip! And if you are a looking for a crispy way to enjoy them, try air fryer salmon with brussels or just air fry brussels on their own!
