Roasted Brussel Sprouts

An incredibly easy way to prepare brussel sprouts that will literally turn them into crispy, delectible (and addicting) green treats.

Roasted Brussel Sprouts


  • 1-2 lbs of fresh brussel sprouts
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. Take all your sprouts and slice them into halves, place them into a bowl.
  3. Douse them with olive oil, then mix gently with your hands.
  4. Sprinkle salt and pepper to your taste, then mix again.
  5. Lay out the sprouts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  6. Roast the sprouts in the oven until you see them brown slightly (35-45 minutes).
  7. Serve immediately.

Quick Notes

When handling your sprout halves, be gentle.  Going rough will rip leaves off and break your sprouts apart.

I didn't put an exact amount of oil because it's all subjective.  I simply douse with some oil as if I were dressing a salad.

I like to roast mine with the salt and pepper, some like to do this afterwards.  There is no wrong or right.


You can add/remove seasonings as you see fit.  Want a really good variation?  Try Stephanie's Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon.
