If you have never eaten Roasted Brussels Sprouts, then you are in for a treat! They taste much nicer than plain old boiled sprouts and are much easier to make too… In fact, they are so good, they’ll even turn life-long sprout haters into sprout lovers!
Easy Peasy Roasted Brussels Sprouts
I am a HUGE fan of brussels sprouts… in fact, so much so I have over 14 recipes for Brussels Sprouts on this website… Everything from Pan Fried Sprouts with Chestnuts and Bacon, to Stir Fried Sprouts with Ginger and Chilli and even Brussels Sprouts with Walnuts, Honey and Stilton!
But my hands down favourite – for flavour, texture and sheer simplicity, are these Easy Peasy Roasted Brussels Sprouts. Roasting Brussels sprouts gives them a wonderful nutty/smoky flavour and a fabulous perfectly tender (but not mushy) on the inside, crisp on the outside texture. In fact, they are so good, they’ll even turn life-long sprout haters into sprout lovers!
And they really could not be easier to make… Simply halve your sprouts and place them on a baking tray. Drizzle over a little olive oil and scatter over some salt and pepper, then turn the sprouts in the oil and seasoning. Next, turn each sprout cut-side up, ensuring they are well spaced out on the baking tray. Finally, roast the sprouts in a hot oven for 10-15 minutes or until just starting to char around the edges. That’s it!
What to serve roasted brussels sprouts with?
These roasted Brussels sprouts are the perfect addition to your Christmas dinner. They go wonderfully with Roast Turkey and all the trimmings!
In fact, quite frankly, they are so delicious, I’d happily eat them as a snack!
Two ways to make your Christmas dinner even easier!
Because roasting sprouts works so well, you can make your life even easier by roasting the sprouts in with the other vegetables… as per this wonderful recipe for Easy Peasy Roasted Christmas Vegetables.
Alternatively, take this concept to the next level by roasting all of the Christmas dinner essentials in one tray in my Easy Peasy Christmas Turkey Traybake!
What to do with leftover sprouts?
Leftover sprouts work wonderfully in these deliciously easy peasy Leftover Sprouts Bubble and Squeak Cakes.
Can you freeze leftover sprouts?
While technically you can freeze leftover cooked sprouts, I really don’t recommend it, as freezing sprouts makes them go mushy. Given that these Brussels Sprouts are so quick and easy to do, I recommend making a fresh batch each time you want to eat them.
