Tips for Roasting Brussels Sprouts

There are a few key things to remember when roasting any type of vegetable:

  • Cut the vegetables into even pieces to achieve similar texture. (although, having some variance in sizes can result in multiple textures and a different eating experience, so I guess this is up to your preference).
  • Space vegetables out on the baking sheet. If you overcrowd your veggies they will STEAM, rather than ROAST and you won’t be happy with the end results.
  • Don’t use too much oil. You want the vegetables to be lightly coated in oil… not dripping.
  • Preheat your oven. Make sure your oven is to right temperature for at least 5 to 10 minutes before putting the veggies in. This will help to lightly sear the outside and get the insides soft.

    Delicious!!! I loved how crispy the parmesan gets that falls on the pan. I used non-stick aluminum foil which worked perfectly, and organic toasted sesame oil which was sooooo yummy!

    Oh my heavens to Betsy!!!! You are a genius. This recipe has turned me from the biggest Brussels Sprouts hater to a lover of the sprouts. Where were you 35 years ago when my mom would serve those nasty, bitter, soggy green “turds” as my sisters and I would call them? These are fantastic! I will absolutely make these again. They were amazing.

    I do not add the cheese until the Brussels are roasted & sprinkle it on just before serving, it doesn't burn & the taste is amazing..
      1. I haven't been able to find a nutritional calculator plugin that is efficient enough for me to add to my recipes, but there are all sorts of apps that can help figure out that info for you. I would give yourself a cup per serving.

      I made these last night with frozen Brussels Sprouts and it turned out good. I'm sure it would have been better with fresh but I had frozen. I microwaved them long enough to be able to cut them in half. I added 5 minutes to the cook time and did not add the cheese until the last 5 minutes

    The breadcrumbs added nothing except calories and carbs to this, so I will leave them out next time. Maybe use a bit more olive oil and fresh garlic instead of powder. Still came out tasty this time though!

    Excellent recipe If I succeeded it must be excellent! FYI, in GB civilized is spelled with an S not a Z - French influence And we did commit to metric system conversion invthe 80’s - British system drives computers bananas, in particular then So indeed we are are civiliz(s)ed because we have proven so far we are able to accept any civilization, draw and grow from them

        As Parmigiana is already quite salty, I'll skip salt next time until the end and season accordingly. A bit too salty for me this first time but fine

    Looks well tasty, can't wait to try it. Temperatures and weights should be in Celsius and metric to match the civilised world though :)
    1. Rickey Owens-Smith
      This is America, and here we don't use the metric system. You'll have to be intelligent enough to make the proper conversions. And I promise you, the United States of America is the most civilized nation in the world. We at least know how to spell civilized!

    Made this recipe for the family last night. Paired well with Rosemary Pork Chops. Turned out to be a great fall dinner. Thank you for the recipe. As for the comments, pop another Prozac, take your yellow H2 to the Stepford House, and get over yourselves. Jesus.
      1. Lynn Mackinney
        They were really good. The only thing I would do differently would be to move them around every five minutes or so so the cheese doesn't get so brown. I also added some minced garlic.

    I am one of those people who would rather starve than eat Brussels Sprouts. About three years ago, I made up a recipe that is very similar to yours - and that was that - my new favorite vegetable! If you feel like it, try pan roasting on high heat - you will get that crunchy outside and tender inside - just make sure you stir very quickly so as not to burn. Also, I use Panko bread crumbs (or other Japanese tempora crumbs) for the extra crunch, and a little lime or lemon juice at the end for a bit of tang and to offset the saltiness of the Parmesan. Thanks for posting a really great dish.
  9. Made these tonight for supper - delicious! I added crumbled bacon to use up leftovers and it was incredible! I'd cut back on the salt, we use less sodium, otherwise scrumptious.

    This website was near the top of my google search for "brussels sprouts" so maybe even the iffy comments helped. My wife still prefers them softer via steaming, but my 7 year Daddy's girl snatched several up and I chomped the rest. I made just under a pound and adjusted the ingredients accordingly. They went great with grilled cheese and apple sandwiches, and ham slices for our young omnivores. Incidentally, I used the store's plastic bag that came with the brussels sprouts. Using a bag allows my kids to be involved in the shaking without throwing sprouts around. I look forward to the roasted asparagus next, and hope the succeeding comments there are slightly more civil- thanks!
