Introducing the Last Brussels Sprouts Recipe You’ll Ever Need


At $.50 a serving, no excuses not to make it!
Brussels Sprouts gets a bad rap.

  1. They’re not just for fancy holidays.
  2. They are not supposed to be mushy and smelly.

Naysayers, I used to be one of you.
Brussels Sprouts is a heated debate on both sides. We’re about to call the whole thing off…RIGHT.NOW.



  • Plentiful
  • Cheap (about $1/lb.)
  • Incredibly potent anti-cancer properties

Forget what you think you know about Brussels Sprouts and try this least one time!

This is THE way to eat them, especially if you want nothing to do with them…


Cut off all those stems and pull the yellow, wilted leaves.

Nothing simpler, than oil, salt and pepper.

Crisp, salty outside; tender inside.

Robust Roasted Brussels Sprouts


  • 1 1/2 lbs. Brussels sprouts
  • 3 tablespoons the best olive oil you can afford
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt (kosher preferred)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut off the stems and pull off any yellow, brown or wilted leaves.
  3. Toss to coat in a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper.
  4. Place on a sheet pan and roast for 35-40 minutes until crisp on outside and tender on inside. Shake pan once during roasting to make sure they cook evenly.


If you have a favorite way to make them, I’d love to hear! I found this recipe to be the best way to convert the die-hard anti-Brussels sprouters. (I’m not confident that’s a word.)



 Smoky and salty flavor at it’s finest…or fanciest.

  6. Jennifer C. says:

    This is exactly how we make sprouts at my house. Everyone eats the up — except the 4 year old, but that is because she thinks they have tiny little faces on them. HA!
