Brussel Sprouts Recipe
How Do You Make Roasted Brussel Sprouts?
To make roasted Brussel Sprouts start by cutting the ends off and quartering them and then place them in a medium bowl. Next, melt butter in the microwave, add seasonings, salt and pepper, and pour over sprouts. Toss until well coated. You can also use olive oil but I prefer the taste of butter on my Brussel Sprouts.
Once your sprouts are well coated, spread them face down evenly on a greased cookie or baking sheet. You want them to lay in a single layer on the sheet and not overlapping one another.
Preheat the over and bake them at 375 degrees for about 25 minutes (longer if you want them crispier). Add some bacon bits and you could have a whole meal of just Brussel Sprouts! It’s not just a side dish 🙂 I served them with Coca Cola BBQ Chicken Hand Pies and they were delicious!

I personally like them slightly crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
