I have never liked brussels sprouts until a friend served this for dinner at her home. It was so simple and yet so delicious. The brussels sprouts had a beautiful nutty and caramelized taste. We loved this dish so much, we included it into our regular vegetable rotation!
A word of advice: Always use fresh brussels sprouts, the frozen ones will taste less crunchy and more mushy in the middle.

prep: 15 minutes
cook: 45 minutes
makes 6 servings
1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts, ends trimmed and yellow leaves removed, cut an “X” into the stem end of each sprout with a paring knife (you can my “X”s in the photo)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
- Place trimmed Brussels sprouts, olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper on a baking sheet. Mix everything well together. Place on center oven rack.
- Roast in the preheated oven for 30 to 45 minutes, shaking pan every 5 to 7 minutes for even browning. Reduce heat when necessary to prevent burning. Brussels sprouts should be darkest brown, almost black, when done. Adjust seasoning with kosher salt, if necessary. Serve immediately.
