Recipe Monday: Roasted Brussel Sprouts (My Kids LOVE Them)!

I have a new go-to side dish that my kids love! If you’re not a fan of brussel sprouts, try this recipe at least once and see if it doesn’t change your mind.

Recipe from Ina Garten, Food Network Kitchen:


1 1/2 pounds of brussel sprouts (the stalks are great, just pick them off)!

3 tablespoons good olive oil

3/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut off the ends of the brussel sprouts and pull off any yellow outer leaves. I like to cut them in half, but that’s up to you (Ina doesn’t)! Mix them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, and pepper, transfer them to a baking sheet and roast for 35-40 minutes until crisp outside and tender inside. Shake the pan from time to time to brown the brussel sprouts evenly. Sprinkle with more kosher salt (optional) and serve hot.

I made these last night and every single one was eaten. I made a few more today and tossed them in a salad with arugula and balsalmic glaze for lunch. They will definitely be served at Thanksgiving.

I got a funny look at Costco yesterday from the checker when my kids noticed the brussel sprouts in the cart and got really excited.
