the trick to perfectly-roasted Brussels sprouts!
In the past, we’ve dived deep into all the tricks to getting perfect roasted Brussels sprouts (you can take a look at our Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic and our festive Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Parmesan and Cranberries) but I’ll summarize the highlights:
- Choose small Brussels sprouts, about 1-1/2 inches in diameter, because they will be more tender and sweet than the larger ones
- For a dark caramelization, roast the Brussels sprouts on a bare sheet pan, cut side down
- Don’t crowd the sheet pan or the sprouts will steam and not roast
- Use a HOT oven – we roast these veggies at 450°F
- If you can smell the Brussels sprouts roasting, you’ll know they’re overcooked
This might just be my favorite way to eat Brussels sprouts and carrots. The carrots and bacon with the sweet/savory glaze is like a flavor party you hope will never end!
Add this one to your list of favorite side dishes, and get it on that dinner rotation, FAST!
Happy eating, friends! Enjoy.
