Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I love a roasted veggie, don’t you? Roasting brings out the earthy complex flavors of foods that can’t be duplicated any other way. Bonus: most kiddos will eat a roasted veggie over any other cooking method. < Not scientific, just my own personal observation.

When you roast Brussels sprouts, the outside takes on a crispy crunchy bite, while the inside is soft and creamy. Oh, momma!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Y’all know when I cook, I make enough for an army, so the following recipe can be halved for you normal folks. This recipe, as written, makes a generous side dish for any table.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

(recipe adapted from: Green Wave Farms)


2 pounds Brussels sprouts

4 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp Kosher or Himalayan salt

1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper


In a large bowl, mix sprouts with olive oil, salt and pepper.

Line a large baking sheet (with a lip) with parchment paper, then pour sprouts on pan.

Roast for 40-45 minutes @400°.

Shake the pan every 20 minutes to brown evenly.


Here’s what I mean by a baking sheet with a lip:

When you go to shake your veggies to ensure proper browning, the lip prevents the sprouts from falling off the pan. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

End result = Brussels sprouts perfection!

Happy Roasting, Y’all!

  1. Do love roasted vegetables and eat a lot of them Merry Christmas.

  2. You know, I’ve never been a fan of brussel sprouts. But then again, I haven’t eaten them in like 20 years. I should probably give them another shot. These look easy!

  3. I just discovered Brussel sprouts a couple of years ago and this is exactly how I make them although I must confess I don’t measure anything.

    P.S. Came over via Grand Social!

  4. Thanks for the recipe. My husband had roasted brussels sprouts last year (not from me) and really liked them. Which was funny to me because I was sure he would find them disgusting – which is why I never make them. I grew up on them and like themt. Anyway….I have never roasted them, so now I can do it for him. Adding a new veggie to my husbands plate.

  5. I’m trying to learn to love new vegetables…. I’ll have to give this recipe a try!

  6. when i’m in a hurry i just spray the brussels with olive oil spray and salt them right in the pan. ditto for broccoli and cauliflower. carrots and onions too. everything tastes better olive-oiled and roasted. thanks for the reminder.

  7. OH thank you for this! I love brussels sprouts but they have to be done right and they can be tricky. You’ve made it simple and these look delicious.

    I love Brussel sprouts, they are my favorite green vegetable. Your recipe seems to be easy to follow, I like adding just a little maple syrup to the finished product. Joe

  9. Roasted Brussels Sprouts are just… Perfection in my mind… And mouth. However, ask me if I like brussels sprouts, oh 15 years ago and I would have laughed in your face!
