Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

If you haven’t tried Roasted Brussels Sprouts, you are in for a treat! Gone are the days of mushy, smelly, overcooked brussel sprouts. You’ll love the subtle crunch and mild flavor of these veggies when roasted with just a few simple ingredients.

I’ve tried a few recipes where the brussels sprouts are roasted with bacon. I like bacon but love the brussels sprouts on their own so I actually prefer them without the added bacon. I do like to drizzle them with a little balsamic glaze right before I serve them. Not for everyone but I sure like it.

Tips from Cooking After Class for making Roasted Brussels Sprouts:

  • Be sure to keep any loose leaves on the pan. Don’t throw them away. They will brown and become nice and crispy…one of my favorite parts of this dish!
  • If you place the brussels sprouts cut side down, the insides with steam and become a bit more tender. The bottoms will camelize a bit and the tops will get crispy. I don’t usually do this because I typically toss them a few times while cooking and put them back in the oven however they land 🙂
  • Line your baking pans with silicone liners to prevent food from sticking. Bonus…they make clean up a breeze too!
