Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts

lewis.mary.e Posts: 225 ✭✭✭

I received a bag of fresh Brussels sprouts in my Misfits Market box 2 weeks ago and just today managed to get them in the oven. No- one likes them but me so I cooked them up for lunch. I'll eat what's left as a side with a burger tomorrow.

I cut the the stems off, sliced the sprouts in half, tossed them in toasted sesame oil and a splash of Balsamic vinegar, salted and peppered lightly, and laid them flat on aluminum foil in a cookie sheet. Roasted for 15 minutes in a 425 degree Fahrenheit oven.

They caramelized a bit, and the outsides were crispy.

    I have three ways I do Brussel sprouts.

    1. Just cooked and seasoned with sea salt

    2. Cooked and afterwards while they drain melt a good spoon of butter in the pot adding some sugar and a splash of apple cider vinegar. Add the drained Sprouse back to the pot serve. Favorite of my four children aged 7 to 13 😊

    3. Cut sprouts in half and stir in a pan with butter. Season with salt black pepper, sweet pepper and chili to liking. This will last around 15 minutes

    @lewis.mary.e And @Jens I’m loving your suggestions. Brussel sprouts are a very underrated vegetable. I usually give a quick boil, then drain, cut in 1/2, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle of sumac, salt and pepper and bake for 30 mins. They really benefit from a bit of charring in the oven. Adding garlic and or bacon when in the oven, lifts them again! White miso also works.

    Those are REALLY good! Another thing I do is leave them whole and lacto-ferment them. They are like little kraut balls!

    I'm gonna try this one! I love the air fryer, and this looks super easy.

    @judsoncarroll4 great idea. I have never fermented brussels sprouts. Going to try that. I usually end up blanching and freezing my extras. But my ultimate favorite way to eat them is raw.

    My wife roasts them with pecans and pomegranate

    @jens She uses a pomegranate balsamic vinegar and a full bodied olive oil as well. I never liked Brussel sprouts much before, but these are awesome.

    A standard at my Thanksgiving table I shred them then saute with white wine and asiago cheese.

    Balsamic and honey is my go-to glaze for brussels sprouts, but I just got gifted a set of various flavors of balsamic that I think might be good.. I'll try the fig balsamic first!

    I love Brusselsprouts and all these recipes sound really good. My brother brought some to thanksgiving dinner a few years back with bacon, and panchetta, and pecans; it was amazing...

    @maimover  I was going to add my roast with bacon recommendation, but you got there first! Delicious.

    Roasting is my favorite way to cook Brussels Sprouts! I mix them with a chive infused olive oil for more flavor.

    I love roasted or stirfried brussel sprouts. Olive oil, salt and some parmesan.....yummy! I also love to cook them in bacon grease with bits of bacon. Soooooo good.

    Roasting is my favorite way to cook brussel sprouts. A couple of weeks ago my Aunt gave me some beautiful stalks from a farmstand. Most of them I roasted in the oven in bacon grease- my mom and I were eating them like potato chips- just couldn't stop.

    We steam them and have Brussels sprouts as a side dish. Or add them to a vegetable soup. I have a lot in my garden and they do not mind winter, snow or cold. I always pick them fresh also from under the snow. I love them as natural as they are.

    There are so many ideas. I think We shall try roasting. Sounds delicious! Thank you for all the ideas

    I love brussels sprouts too. Even if you like them or love them but don't have room or area to grow them their are ones in a steamable microwave pouch that are quite good. Have found them at several grocery places in Wisconsin.

    There's a brussle sprout seed now that grows half as tall and takes a shorter season. It's still an heirloom and not GMO. I was thinking of growing that this year as My season is shorter than some peoples

    I think one reason so many people don't like brussell sprouts is they had them cooked (usually mush) the first time they had them

    The recipes and suggestions have been great! Thank you

    Love to brown bacon pieces on the stove in a cast iron skillet, remove from the grease, add halved brussel sprouts tossed with olive oil, pink salt and pepper and roast them on the stove top. Add back the bacon pieces before serving. Delicious!

    I would love thoughts on growing them. I have never had mine turn out.

    @Acequiamadre MY first experience with brussel spouts was a bit of a bust. They tens to start out slow and then kick in. Thye taste better when they get a bit of a frost. We have many people around here that harvest them for thanksgiving and go knock the snow off of them.
