How Long To Roast Brussels Sprouts?

It should take about 15 to 17 minutes to roast, depending on the size of your Brussels Sprouts.

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.

    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.

    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!

    Greetings from Southern Utah! (St. George)
    Thank you so much for what you do and the way in which you do it.
    I went on line to find a recipe for roasted Brussels Sprouts and chose your blog to review.
    I was stunned by the tirade that erupted over your recipe… and fact that it lasted for months.
    I felt compelled to respond to this blog and to subscribe to your newsletter for two reasons:
    > I think the recipe looks delicious. and
    > I am impressed by the polite and courteous manner in which you responded to your bloggers…In spite of their tirade.
    Thanks again.

    I am a new to your website and so sad to read some of the comments. Why people feel they must correct you is beyond my thinking. This recipe sounds so good I’m anxious to try it. Just ignore these comments by someone trying to feel superior. Thank you for the FREE recipe.

    Just wanted to know if by chance you know the caloric content of this delicious recipe! I’m very calorie conscious and these are so awesome and Ii never would eat them in the past but now I buy brussels sprouts every time I go to the grocery. They are so good they must be fattening!

  7. Laura

    I made this recipe and it tastes great. I Just wish the bread crumbs and parmesan stayed on better. I washed them then let it sit in fridge to dry, then sit at room temp, coated and baked. Just seemed like the crumbs and cheese were at the bottom of the pan. I think next time I’ll coat with oil them mix in half of that them sprinkle the rest in top,

    I have made this many times, both fresh or frozen, all Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and broccoli, is the bomb! I cook for the homeless and vets on the streets and this one of their favorites. I do defrost my frozen in towels and they aren’t as crunchy but still wonderful. I cannot believe the bashing this site has received on such sharing a great recipe. If you don’t want to use a plastic bag, a bowl works great, I just personally wash dry and save them until they are worn out, then they go the recycle center. I cook for so many and so old I do as easy as I can but also conscious of our environment. So glad some of you aren’t on my sites to critique me.

    About to try making these now. I love Brussels sprouts and have been trying to eat more veggies and way less carbs this spring. For all the plastic bag negativity people ,,why don’t you all just use the grocery bags you bring the veggies home in ? Even if u bring your own bags to the store, you still have to keep veggies clean from every thing else u buy, and keep the plastic for one more use , then dispose of. -accordingly , in recycling. My goodness So much fuss toward someone going out of her way to give us a yummy free recipe. The entire world is so entitlement driven and hurtful. So few thank you’s here in comments. So I will say . Thank you. And yes I am using the original grocery bag and gluten free bread crumbs too

  10. Bonnie Pickett

    Umm.. this looks yummy (minus the snarky jabs). Are we placing the things flat side down on the sheet or round side down (on the sheet)?

  11. Lane

    I believe these will be really great. While great for video production (just dumping dry ingredient into the bag) I would suggest blending in a bowl before adding to get an even distribution, particularly of the salt & pepper. For those concerned about the bread crumbs, maybe consider using finely crushed pork rinds – additional flavor and zero carbs.

    Look so delicious!!! I want to eat all of this at the first moment when I see them.Thank you for sharing these food.

  13. Nichnanny

    Hi Shawn, Thank you for sharing this recipe! I have always loved Brussels sprouts but your recipe takes them to a whole new level! I can’t wait to make them again soon! Delicious!!!

  14. Jennifer

    You people are ridiculous. It’s a recipe. Make it, don’t make it, use a bag or use a bowl. No one cares about spelling or grammar. It’s a recipe, not an English class



  16. Shirley

    I make Brussel sprouts by simply tossing a bag of frozen sprouts in the microwave to steam them, then empty into a microwaveable dish, put some butter, lemon pepper and parmigian cheese, stir and microwave for a minute and serve. My kids, their friends all love my Brussel sprouts. If I’m not in a hurry, I put in the oven for a few minutes

    1. Sally Cowan

      I love the recipes and look forward to trying them as a relatively new cook.
      I would comment though that there are a couple of gals on this page that need to
      get a life. They are sleeping too close to the house. We’re here to learn to better
      feed our families and serve new things; not to learn to spell.

  17. Becky Everhart

    Can these brussel sprouts be made ahead and reheated later? I want to make them at home and take them to a dinner party.
