- Brussel Sprouts – You’ll want the fresh brussels sprouts to be washed, the end trimmed off, and then cut into halves or quarters! I like to cut small ones in half and larger ones in quarters to keep them nice and crispy all over.
- Olive Oil – Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is the best for this recipe. You want all that good quality flavor!
- Salt – I like sea salt or Himalayan salt for this recipe, but you can use whatever you have on hand!
- Black Pepper – Freshly ground black pepper is best for this recipe!
- Balsamic Vinegar – I like an aged balsamic vinegar for the brussels sprouts, as it will have the most sweetness and flavor! You’ll just add this to taste.
- Honey – Honey adds a delicious sticky sweetness to the brussels sprouts that makes this side dish irresistible! You can add whatever honey you prefer here – I like wildflower honey!
If you’d like, you can add some chopped herbs like thyme, sage, or rosemary with the salt and pepper for a savory, herby flavor that complements the balsamic vinegar so well!

If desired, you can cook for an additional 5 minutes for extra crispy brussels sprouts.

💭 Angela's Tips & Recipe Notes
I highly recommend using fresh, not frozen brussel sprouts, for this recipe!
- Using fresh will ensure the sprouts bake up nice and crispy and aren’t ever soggy!
- If you can only find frozen, you don’t want to defrost them. Toss the frozen sprouts with the seasoning and place them directly in the oven to roast so they are less soggy!
Try not to crowd the pan when adding the brussel sprouts!
- Putting the sprouts in one evenly spaced layer will ensure that the sprouts roast and don’t steam so they stay delightfully crisp! You can even use two pans if needed.
Before you cut the brussel sprouts, it’s good to trim them too.
- Remove any loose or discolored leaves. Then cut off the tough bottom end, as this can sometimes be hard to chew.
- After the sprouts are trimmed, cut in half or quarters so that they roast evenly, and all have the same amount of tenderness.
🥡 Storing & Reheating
Brussel sprouts will keep in the fridge, but their flavor will get more pungent and less sweet as time passes. I would recommend eating within no more than 3-4 days. To store them, put the cooled roasted brussels sprouts in an airtight container or freezer bag.
If desired, you can freeze these tasty roasted brussel sprouts! Once cooked and cooled, transfer to an airtight container or freezer bag and freeze for up to 1 year!
Reheating Balsamic Roasted Brussel Sprouts
Reheating leftover roasted brussel sprouts is so easy! The best method, in my opinion, is using the oven.
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and spread the leftover sprouts (don’t defrost if you’ve frozen them) evenly on a baking sheet. Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes or until they’re hot and crispy again!

Brussel sprouts are a cruciferous vegetable like cabbage or broccoli. When overcooked, they produce chemicals that can give that sulfur odor that none of us enjoy. My roasted brussel sprouts have a quick roast at high heat – so they’ll be perfectly cooked and never smelly!
If your sprouts turned out soggy, it’s possible they were overcrowded in the pan! It’s important to give them lots of space so they don’t steam. Also, make sure you roast them until they reach your desired level of crispiness! If they’re still not crispy after the initial time listed, you can add 5-minute intervals until they’re delightfully crisp!
