How do you Trim Brussels Sprouts?

You always have the option of roasting your Brussels sprouts whole, but I recommend cutting them in half for this recipe. This allows the insides to cook more evenly and also creates those sought-after caramelized edges. Here’s how to trim your Brussels sprouts:

  1. If your sprouts come on the stalk, use a sharp knife to detach them.
  2. Trim the tough bottom off of each sprout.
  3. Remove any yellow or damaged outer leaves.
  4. Cut each sprout in half, lengthwise.
  5. Rinse your sprouts under cool water in a colander.
  6. Lay them flat and pat them dry with a towel.

How to Roast Brussels Sprouts in The Oven

  • Preheat your oven to 400 °F.
  • Toss prepared brussels sprouts with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Make sure each sprout is well-coated.
  • Lay your Brussels sprouts on a baking sheet and sprinkle on cooked, chopped bacon if using. Tip: For the crispiest sprouts, lay each sprout cut side down.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes in the oven!

Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts

You can Air Fry Brussels Sprouts at 375˚F for 15 minutes, tossing the brussels sprouts halfway through for even browning.

How to Store Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Store roasted Brussels sprouts in an airtight container in the fridge. They will stay fresh for up to a week. I don’t recommend freezing Brussels sprouts, as they are prone to getting soggy when reheated. However, if you must freeze them, allow them to thaw in the refrigerator overnight before reheating them according to the directions below.

Can Brussels Sprouts be Made Ahead?

Even though they do reheat well (see reheating instructions below), we find roasted brussels sprouts are the most vibrant when enjoyed fresh out of the oven. If you want to get some prep work done in advance for your holiday dinner or party, you can trim and cut brussels sprouts in half and pre-chop your bacon. Keep those refrigerated in separate air-tight containers then proceed with the recipe and bake before serving.

Reheating Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon:

Reheat your sprouts by baking them in the oven at 350 °F for five minutes. You could microwave them, but know that they will end up being a bit soggy. We prefer reheating brussels sprouts in the oven or even in the air fryer so they can re-crisp.

  • Roasted Beef Tenderloin – so easy and you’ll love the crust
  • Baked Salmon – with incredible garlic, lemon dijon glaze
