Roasted Brussels Sprouts

November 15, 2022

These Roasted Brussels Sprouts are crispy on the outside, tender on the inside and topped with grated parmesan, toasted almonds and a touch of lemon juice. My whole family loves them, and yours will too!


If a worldwide Brussels sprout eating contest existed, I guarantee you that I would win it every year! I mean business when I’m eating Brussels sprouts. When they’re in season, I have them almost every day whether it be in a salad, air fried, or roasted. I buy stalks of them fresh from the farmers market and have bags of frozen in the freezer. Even when I make a family sized batch for dinner, I must summon my best mom behavior to share with everyone. All I want to do is hog every last one for myself!


Tips for the Crispy Roasted Brussels Sprouts

When you make Brussels sprouts, we’re all on the hunt for the perfect combination of crispy yet tender. I feel I’ve mastered the art over the years, so here are some tips!

  1. When you’re buying your Brussels sprouts, look for ones that are super fresh. They should be relatively firm and bright green with minimal wilted leaves on the outsides.
  2. Tossing these beauties in olive oil is also a big key to getting Brussels sprouts beautifully crispy.
  3. My last tip (and maybe most important), make sure each sprout is cut side down when roasting. It’s worth the extra couple minutes it takes to flip them over.

Recipes to Serve with Brussels Sprouts

This veggie is super versatile. You can serve it alongside almost any dish, and it will be perfectly complimentary.

Chicken: Serve roasted Brussels with some of my favorite chicken dishes like Lemon Herb Chicken, Air Fryer Roast Chicken or Pretzel Fried Chicken.

Fish: A beautiful piece of fish pairs well with these Brussels sprouts. Try Salmon with Fennel, Citrus and Olives, Miso Marinated Fish or Fish Sticks to start!

Pork: One of our all time favorites, Southern Style Pork Tenderloin, would also go great with these Brussels. Or try Maple Pork Tenderloin and Herb Brined Pork Chops.

Pasta: Take a simple pasta like Chicken Mozzarella Pasta or Caramelized Shallot Pasta with Gruyere to the next level with these roasted Brussels sprouts on the side.


If the thought of Brussels sprouts makes you want to run for the hills, I beg you to try this recipe and then reevaluate your decision. They’re simple yet so delicious! This recipe is an absolute foolproof way to get crispy yet tender Brussels sprouts. It may not turn you into an avid brussie lover like me (it’s a little much…), but I think this recipe will get you well on your way to discovering a new appreciation for this often misunderstood vegetable.
