Roasted Garlic Brussels Sprouts

If you need to convince someone to like brussels sprouts or it's their first time trying them; the best way to have brussels sprouts is to roast them!

Did y’all hear that news story yesterday how the FDA ruled that trans fat in foods is indeed bad and isn’t safe? If this is finalized, then trans fat can’t be added to food without approval.

Personally, I think that’s great and probably a lot better for everyone’s health! Ever since the word got out about trans fat, I feel like that’s all you ever saw on packaging, “no trans fat!” – it’s interesting how the food industry has changed so much.

I feel like everything is bad for you unless you make it yourself, lol

Anyway, you know how much I love roasting vegetables so I thought there had to be a roasted veggie as a side dish for any day of the week.

Roasted garlic brussels sprouts! They’re super easy to make (who doesn’t love easy side dishes?) and everyone will gobble this up.

I seriously can’t think of a better way to eat brussels sprouts. You know what they say, people who say they don’t like brussels sprouts haven’t had it cooked the right way and roasting brussels sprouts is definitely the right way! :)

    I love brussels sprouts! I’ve never had them with garlic, but that would be a nice change. I usually roast them with cranberries and pecans.

  2. 11/08/2013 at 8:36 am

    Love brussels! These look perfect!

  3. 11/08/2013 at 8:42 am

    Brussels Sprouts are my favorite veggies and roasting them is my favorite cooking method. These look perfect!

  4. 11/08/2013 at 8:51 am

    I love brussels sprouts, and this is a great easy and delicious looking recipe!

  5. 11/08/2013 at 9:13 am

    We eat roasted brussels sprouts every single week–I just love how caramely they get in the oven. Your idea of adding garlic would be so flavorful too!

  6. 11/08/2013 at 9:14 am

    Yes! Love roasted brussels sprouts. Trying your version tonight. xo

  7. 11/08/2013 at 9:19 am

    Yum! Love brussels sprouts! Great recipe for the holidays!

  8. 11/08/2013 at 11:03 am

    Roasted brussels sprouts are my favorite, can’t wait for our garden harvest of sprouts this year!

  9. I agree with you about roasting Brussels sprouts. I’d never tried them til a couple of years ago when I had them roasted, and it changed my life. Now when winter comes, I can’t wait to roast up a big pan and enjoy them.

  10. 11/08/2013 at 11:25 am

    Now let’s see how long it takes them to follow suit with what other countries are doing in regards to food and additives that don’t need to be there. So unnecessary. Yes… homemade is so much better and just generally fun to make!

    I love Brussel sprouts. We roast them with sweet potatoes and pancetta with rosemary oilve oil and garlic. Its a great side dish cuz you have potato and greens! its delish! I never liked brussles untill i had them this way, now i love them=-)

  12. 11/08/2013 at 11:29 am

    LOVE roasted brussels, I just wish I could get my kids to agree with me

  13. 11/08/2013 at 11:38 am

    I totally adore brussel sprouts! I don’t think I can wait for Thanksgiving to make these!

  14. 11/08/2013 at 12:08 pm

    Yum, brussel sprouts are my favorite! Especially when you can buy them on the stalk and cut them off, So cute. And funny note, I made roasted brussel sprouts with garlic salt for dinner last night! The best way to eat them : )

    Vegetables were my enemy growing up! How times have changed though, brussels sprouts are a favorite of mine now. And I’m right with you, having them cooked the right way is a game changer.

  16. 11/08/2013 at 12:44 pm

    Definitely my favorite way to prepare brussels sprouts. Didn’t like them until I tasted them roasted. :)

  17. 11/08/2013 at 1:13 pm

    LOVE roasted brussels sprouts!

  18. 11/08/2013 at 1:34 pm

    Pretty excited to see a community full of brussels sprout lovers! For a long time I feared I was the only one. :) Perhaps we need ‘Brussels Sprout Lovers Unite’ t-shirts?

    I love them roasted with lemon juice and raw honey. Can’t wait to try the garlic twist!

    • 11/08/2013 at 8:21 pm

      Love the t-shirt idea!! :)

  19. 11/08/2013 at 2:40 pm

    Love brussels sprouts roasted and also mashed with lots of butter (the way Julia Child loved them)! Thanks for sharing, Julie!

  20. 11/08/2013 at 6:16 pm

    I agree, i’m not a huge brussels sprout fan, but I do like them roasted.

  21. 11/08/2013 at 7:00 pm

    I love roasted brussels sprouts, and with garlic, I know I’d inhale these!

  22. 11/08/2013 at 8:05 pm

    Mmmm… I love brussel sprouts. My favorite way is in a pan with a little butter until the edges start getting crispy. Yum!

  23. 11/08/2013 at 9:17 pm

    I’ve never roasted brussel sprouts, but I heard its the best way to make them. These looks absolutely gorgeous, and I’m definitely willing to give them a try!

  24. 11/09/2013 at 2:29 pm

    Definitely bookmarking these! The combo of brussel sprouts and roasted garlic sounds perfect for Christmas!

  25. 11/09/2013 at 8:36 pm

    I grew up with brussels sprouts at the Turkey day table every year and I loved them!! These look so perfect!!

    I tried making these last night… They were burnt, like bad. I’m trying to figure out what I did wrong? They also were dry. I used 1/8 cup (2 tbsp) and baked them at 400 for 35 min. I was really bummed because this recipe looks delish! Any tips or suggestions? Thanks! Love your blog! This is the first recipe I’ve ever had difficulty with. :-/

    • 11/11/2013 at 12:48 pm

      Hi Kim! I’m really sorry these didn’t turn out for you :( if they’re a little dry, maybe sprinkle more olive oil on them? I know I mentioned 1/8 cup (2 tbsp.) but that is what worked for me and the size of my brussels sprouts so maybe yours were bigger or something and needed more olive oil? I’m sorry! I’ll add a note in the recipe in case this happens to someone else and the dryness issue. I hope you try this again, maybe use extra oil, like 1/2 cup to make sure they’re all covered well. Thanks for the feedback and I hope you try this again!

      • Kim
        11/11/2013 at 12:55 pm

        Thanks for replying! I will try again using smaller sprouts too, the ones I bought were huge! I’m trying to eat healthier so I really don’t want to use a ton of oil, but I will try it out again! Thanks so much!!

  27. 11/11/2013 at 4:29 pm

    I find myself CRAVING brussels sprouts this time of year. Love these!

  28. 11/11/2013 at 7:06 pm

    Thanks for the recipe, Julie! I’ll bet your recipe will make brussels sprouts taste amazing!

  29. 11/12/2013 at 11:06 am

    ahh my favorite vegetable!! Love them roasted..and they’re so perfect with garlic!

  30. 11/12/2013 at 6:03 pm

    Roasted brussels sprouts are the best!

  31. 11/20/2013 at 11:02 am

    I can’t get enough brussel sprouts :) these look SO tasty!!

    Could you add garlic cloves so they get roasted too? Or would it ruin the whole batch?

    • Julie
      06/01/2014 at 10:04 am

      Sure you can! Roasting garlic can be tricky if you’ve never done it before so just keep an eye on it so they don’t burn. I’m also not sure how much of a garlic taste your brussels sprouts will get though if it’s not mixed with the brussels, unless you’re planning on mashing the roasted garlic cloves together with the brussels sprouts afterwards.

    This is recipe is to die for, it’s simple, healthy and it worked perfectly. I did not use garlic salt, but used 2 finely chopped cloves of fresh garlic, increased the olive oil, to how it appeared to need, and voila~ I love roasted or grilled vegetables, so this was a hit with us! Thank you! ( p. s. at such high heat, which is actually the secret to the texture of crispy outside and tender inside, one must watch them; every personal amounts/needs are different, so use common sense, right? The note about using oil according to appearance/amounts is a good idea. Mine were perfect.

    To cut down on calories I simply used the butter flavored cooking spray both in the oven pan and shaken together with the sprouts and garlic salt. No butter needed worked fabulous soooooo yummy.

    Also goes well with ginger, I sometimes do them in a frying pan with ginger. They compliment each other really well.

    thanks the recipes and you effort to contact me.

    So I just made these, and 35 minutes is TOO LONG. I did 35 the first time and they were crispy and burnt. This time I did 15 minutes and they’re lovely. Perfectly roasted. Added a little salt and chord down.
