Brussel Sprouts Recipe : How to Actually Make ‘Em Taste Good!

I know Brussel Sprouts get a bad rap…in fact I grew up thinking they were the most miserable, disgusting vegetable ever to grow out of the earth.  Not because I’d tasted them and thought they were gross though.  I never even had one until 2010.

Turns out, they’re DELICIOUS!  AND super easy to make.

Here’s my favorite and simplest Brussel Sprouts recipe.  If you’re fan and have a favorite way you make them, I’d love for you to share your best brussel sprouts recipes with us in the comments below the post!


Brussel Sprouts, rinsed and cut in half, discard top layer of leaves (especially if they’re not organic)

Olive Oil

Sea salt



1.Pre-heat oven to Convection Bake 425 degrees for best results

2. Clean and cut brussel sprouts

3. Put them in a large bowl.

4. Amount of olive oil will depend on amount of brussel sprouts, I’ll leave this up to you, I never actually measure it

5. Sea salt and paprika to taste (again, I’m not big on measuring for this, I usually do “a couple of shakes”)

6. Bake for 12-15 minutes (may want to set for 10 minutes to start and check on them, I’m sure ovens vary, don’t want to burn them)

The best part by the way, are the crispy single leaves that fall off in the pan.  YUM…Brussel Sprouts CAN taste good! –> Click to Tweet

BONUS TIP: Try this same recipe for broccoli, green beans, or cauliflower … switch out paprika for your favorite seasoning.

    I’m a BIG advocate of roasting brussel sprouts too! A far cry from the “boiled to mush” sprouts my mom made growing up. My husband roasted some sprouts for me a few years ago, and I’m pretty sure we have them now at least every other week!

    Brussel sprouts are my second favourite veg after asparagus so I can eat them any way…boiled, steamed, plain, seasoned….My husband on the other hand, hates them. However, whenever I roast them with some EVOO, garlic, and rosemary he will eat them. I do almost all my veg this way as he will eat anything I put in front of him, but it helps if you actually like/can tolerate the taste as well. I’ve never used paprika but will definitely give that a go next time. Thanks for the tip!!

    love brussel sprouts!!! a little bit of honey is really good too! and if you were like me and didn’t love the bitter taste when i first started eating them, the honey sweetens them up! now i love them with just evoo and sea salt!

    Made brussel sprouts tonight for dinner…instead of sea salt I added hot sauce! Totally went out on a limb trying it but THEY WERE AMAZING!!

    Thanks for giving a shot out to the under-rated BP’s!!

    Kick your brussel sprouts up a notch by adding thinly sliced red onion and fennel before roasting. The onion adds sweetness and the fennel a flavor boost.

    Roasted Brussels sprouts are amazing! I like to add a little cumin to mine as well.
