Tips to Perfect Roasted Brussels Sprouts
- To reduce oven time, you can pre-boil brussels sprouts, even a day in advance! This is not my favorite way to prepare brussels sprouts, but softening the sprouts can reduce cook time considerably. Just be sure to really let sprouts crisp up in oven after softening.
- Trim the ends off brussels sprouts and cut in half.
- Bring 4 cups water to a boil in lightly salted water.
- Boil then reduce and cook to just softened – only about 5-10 minutes total.
- When brussels have softened, shake off all excess water, and lightly pat dry.
- Continue with directions below, but note you’ll reduce cooktime.
- Add to baking sheets and bake for 20-25 minutes, until crisp.
- If brussels sprouts are browning too quickly before they have fully softened, reduce the heat to 350 degrees.
- Make sure you heat oven to 400 degrees before adding brussels to oven – a preheated oven will help them cook faster and crisp up.
Balsamic Glazed Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Cranberries
This roasted brussels recipe is fantastically delicious when combined with a slightly sweet and tangy balsamic glaze – I am adding this recipe variation if you’d like a little more flavor from the dish!
- Find a balsamic reduction you love and isn’t too tart.
- Prep recipe as described below in a large bowl, but when adding olive oil and salt also drizzle a *little* balsamic over brussels sprouts and cranberries (you want to infuse balsamic flavor as the brussels cook – but don’t want to burn the balsamic.)
- When brussels have finished cooking, drizzle more balsamic glaze over the dish and toss to coat.
