Holiday Recipes Sides Vegetables Vegetarian

These SUPER crispy roasted brussels sprouts are a great side dish you can make in for the holidays or for a side to go with your next weeknight meal! They’re perfectly crispy around every inch of the brussels sprout, just like what you’d expect at the restaurant and so easy to make at home!

I personally prefer these extra salty like potato chips, so feel free to season them to your liking with salt at the end! The brussels sprouts will crisp up upon resting.

Try and buy evenly sized brussels sprouts at the store if you can. You’ll want evenly sized sprouts so that they cook as evenly as possible and crisp up at the same rate. Otherwise, you may have some brussels sprouts that are burnt by the time the larger ones are crispy.

I recommend using a high quality extra virgin olive oil for this recipe. Aside from the seasonings, your oil is the key ingredient that will turn your brussels sprouts into a showstopper of a side, so you want to use a good quality oil.

Cooking Crispy Roasted Brussels Sprouts: Recipe Instructions

Prepare and cut the Brussels Sprouts in half

Preheat your oven to 450F and place your baking tray in the oven to preheat with it. Next, wash your brussels sprouts of excess dirt and pick off any out leaves that may be yellow or wilted. Once they are prepped, simply slice each brussels sprout in half lengthwise as seen below.

Season the Brussels Sprouts

Once the brussels sprouts are cleaned and halved, place them in a large mixing bowl and combine with half of your olive oil along with kosher salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and honey. Give them a good mix and toss to evenly coat each brussels sprout with seasoning an oil.

Roast the Brussels Sprouts at high heat

Drizzle the other half of your olive oil in the preheated baking sheet and lay the brussels sprouts face down. Roast the brussels sprouts at 450F for about 30 minutes or until the leaves are dark golden brown and crispy (the cooking time will vary based on your oven). Check the brussels sprouts about halfway through and add more olive oil as needed. If you don’t hear them crisping up in the oven, add a little more oil and roast them for a few more minutes until your desire crispiness is achieved!

Depending on your oven and the size of your brussels sprouts, cooking times may vary. If possible use similar size brussels sprouts to ensure even cooking throughout and check the brussels sprouts occasionally until they are crispy to your liking!

These brussels sprouts will absorb the oil in order to get crispy, so don’t be afraid to add a little extra olive oil on them as needed.

  1. OMG!!!!!!!!!!! These are perfect and the best Brussels ever. I always ask for them extra crispy when I order them out and do not always get them that way. These are exactly how I love them. Thank You!!!!

    I just finished cooking the recipe and it’s fantastic! I fell in love with an ultra crispy Brussel sprouts dish I tried in Colorado and was looking for a way to replicate. I don’t own an Air Fryer which gives that texture easily but this is the alternative! I added a pinch of the veggie roaster blend I have for extra spice 🙂 Thanks for sharing this. One for the books!

    Fantastic method!
    Used Thai peanut sauce instead of the honey. Added more sauce and sauteed onions at the end. So crispy and delicious!
