Best Brussel Sprouts Ever!

Best Brussel Sprouts Ever!

If you never like brussel sprouts before you really need to give these a try because they will seriously change the way you think of them! These are roasted in the oven for 25-35 minutes with chopped garlic, olive oil and a sprinkle of salt…that’s it. They are so simple to make and the edges of the brussel sprouts get caramelized along with the garlic pieces. These are delicious served with a sprinkle of Parmesan too after they are roasted.

Ingredients – serves 6-8 people:

  • 2 lbs. fresh brussel sprouts
  • 4 lg garlic cloves coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil – plus extra drizzle of olive oil OR 1 tbsp butter after they are roasted
  • 1/4 Tsp of salt – – plus extra sprinkle of salt to taste after they are roasted
  • Sprinkle of black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Reggiano Parmesan to serve on the side (optional)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375º
  2. Cut 1/2″ off the ends of the brussel sprouts
  3. Cut the brussel sprouts in half vertically
  4. Add the chopped garlic, and brussel sprout to a cookie tray
  5. Drizzle olive oil over sprouts and garlic and sprinkle with salt
  6. Arrange the brussel sprouts so that the cut halves are all face down on the cookie tray – this inner side will be the caramelized side of the sprout

  8. Put on a serving dish along with grated Reggiano Parmesan cheese on the side

    I make something similar minus the garlic (will have to try that!) and I shake the pan every 5 minutes or so! I make 2 pounds for the three of us and the semi-burnt, crackly leaves that fall off are weirdly delicious!

      Hi Nancy,
      Yes, the crackly leaves are weirdly delicious! Try not shaking the pan every 5 minutes
      …relax and go do other things and you will see it’s not necessary. And definitely try it
      with the garlic – really yummy 🙂
