Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

The Best Ever Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts. This is the only recipe you will ever need. I have never liked Brussels sprouts. Until now.



Growing up, Brussels sprouts were on my 'not a chance I am putting that in my mouth' list.  My mom was a fabulous cook, but Brussels boiled and coated in white cream sauce was NOT up my alley.

There were a handful or two, of other items on that same list.  You might say I was a picky child.

I didn't like meat, wouldn't eat most veggies, and don't even get me started on milk.  Some things never change.  Somethings do. Side dishes seem like they can make or break a meal.

As a grown adult I can say, besides lemon and cake, vegetables are my favorite.  I would eat broccoli all day every day if I could.

Brussels sprouts have just been that thorn in my side.  I wanted to like them but they didn't fit my tastes.

Finally I gave in to my senses and decided to combine my favorite flavors and roast them in the oven.  Voila!

Like magic, Brussels sprouts, red onion, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper come together to create the most delicious Brussels sprouts you will ever eat.&

I honestly devoured this entire recipe in one day.  I couldn't get enough.  Now, my green veggie detesting husband...  That is a battle for another day.

{{With my apron behind me like a cape}} I feel like a super cook that has conquered yet another vegetable fear and saved the day.  Until next time...

This bread is super simple, great for a party, and can be prepped ahead of time if you're in a pinch when party planning. It's a great touch on a holiday table as an alternative to traditional rolls.

  1. Brussels sprouts entered my life late. Late as in maybe 2-3 years ago. And I should probably be thankful because as a kid, I might just have not appreciated them much. Yet now it's one of those food items that I indulge in whenever I the purse has a few jingles. It's pricey here being imported and all. I posted a recipe cooking it with chorizo and orange juice. Soooo good!

    1. Do you pre-cook the bacon pieces, or just chop the bacon & toss it in the mix?

  7. Heating olive oil to over 180 C ( 356F) is said to damage the fatty acids. Some say you should never heat it at. I like to gently saute lightly steamed Brussels with garlic, ginger, a little soy sauce and balsamic vinegar.

  8. I'm going to try this one. I usually use balsamic vinegar & sea salt & pepper. Looks great.

  16. Roasting is the best of the best! I like to slice mine core to top and add onions and bacon so they are nice and crunchy. Cut off the bottom of course. Add garlic powder and sprinkle blood orange olive oil at the end. Yummmmmmy

  17. I usually cut mine in 1/2, toss with olive oil salt and pepper and roast in the oven. Then make a sauce with a couple slices sauteed bacon, toss in chopped shallot garlic and chopped mini bell mushrooms and cook until shallots are translucent. Then I add some cream sherry and heavy whipping cream, when that has thicken a little put in the roasted brussel sprouts and toss. I know its a very rich dish, but its the holidays and your not going to eat the whole thing anyway. My granddaughter who is 13 and a very picky eater and hates mushrooms went back for more and didn't even know she was eating mushrooms. I also used to tell my kids that brussel sprouts were baby cabbaged and broccoli was baby trees.
