Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Don’t let brussel sprouts scare you. I was scared to try them at first, and so was my husband. They stink while cooking in the oven, but in the end they still taste good. This is a really easy recipe to make if you are curious about trying brussel sprouts for the first time. Just a little olive oil, salt, and pepper, and cook them in the oven at a high temp for awhile and they taste amazing. They’re so cute too, almost remind me of little baby cabbages. I’m sure bacon would make them taste even better.

I am horrible at trying to get a vegetable in every day. I try to do that at dinner time, and I’ve been trying lately to get a new one in every week. Roasted broccoli is also good this way.

Roasted Brussel Sprouts


  • 1 1/2 poundsouts brussel sproiuts
  • 3 tablespoons good olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


Step 1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Step 2
Cut off the brown ends of the Brussels sprouts and pull off any yellow outer leaves. Mix them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Pour them on a sheet pan and roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Shake the pan from time to time to brown the sprouts evenly. Sprinkle with more kosher salt ( I like these salty like French fries), and serve immediately.

    Try a little balsamic vinegar sprinkled on them after you have roasted them. The balsamic adds just a slight sweetness. I will even eat them left over cold with the balsamic on them, so tasty.
