Add some green to your plate with these delicious Roasted Brussels Sprouts! Ring in the new year with a healthy side dish that the whole family will love.
Cheers to 2019, friends! What are some of your goals for the upcoming year? I have a few things I’m aiming to accomplish… and one of them is to get our toddler on board with eating veggies.
These Roasted Brussels Sprouts are downright incredible.
With a touch of brown sugar and a slight kick from the whole grain mustard, these little gems will please even the pickiest of eaters. You’ll end up popping them into your mouth one after another (… and another, then another), I swear.
To start, cut the Brussels sprouts in half and remove any damaged leaves from the exterior. Place the halves in a large bowl and set aside. Next, finely chop half of a small sweet white onion. The onion is completely optional but I think it gives this dish a flavor enhancement. Toss it into the Brussels sprouts bowl once chopped.
In a small bowl, mix together some grain mustard, brown sugar and extra virgin olive oil. Next you’ll pour the brown sugar-mustard mixture over the Brussels sprouts and mix all elements together until well combined. Add a pinch of salt, to taste, and pop those bad boys onto a lined baking sheet. Roast at 375F for approximately 25 minutes, or until just browning and the Brussels are tender. Poof, done.
Want to upgrade these veggies into a jaw-dropping, mouth-watering, totally addicting bowl of awesome?
After they’re done cooking, toss them with my Sweet & Spicy Candied Pecans. The pecans are incredibly easy to make and have a subtle kick of habanero. When paired together with the Brussels sprouts, they turn this recipe into a party-in-your-mouth, “I can’t get enough”, kind of side dish. Not kidding.
- 1 pound Brussels sprouts cut in half
- ½ small Sweet White Onion, finely chopped

- Preheat oven to 375F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
- Prepare Brussels sprouts and white onion and place into a large mixing bowl.
- Combine mustard, brown sugar and olive oil in a small mixing bowl and then pour over the vegetables.
- Sprinkle with a pinch of salt, to taste, and bake for approximately 25 minutes, or until just browning and the Brussels are tender.

- Other flavorful add-ins include: crispy bacon, crumbled feta or goat cheese and/or chopped apples.
- To make a full meal, we love serving these with grilled chicken and a side salad.
- Our little guy loves a slight kick of spiciness. However, if you’re not a fan of heat go ahead and skip the hot sauce when making my Sweet & Spicy Candied Pecans.

Simply delicious! Even my two young daughters said these brussels sprouts were delicious. I don’t think they have EVER said that about any green on their plates. THANK YOU, THANK YOU for this wonderful recipe! I have shared it with my entire family. I substituted candies pecans as I wasn’t sure how my kids would respond to anything spicy but will definitely give the sweet and spicy pecans a go next time.
YAY! I’m so thrilled you tried these! They’re seriously our fav. You can make the sweet and spicy pecan recipe and skip the hot sauce! The contrast of sweet pecans with the savory Brussels is divine! 🙂
Oh my gosh. I made these tonight and they may be the best Brussels sprouts I’ve ever had. They smelled AMAZING while they cooked, so I was hopeful. Smell is not always indicative of how it’ll taste, but the flavor was just as good as I’d hoped. Maybe better. I did use more than a pinch of salt (maybe about the normal amount I’d use on roasted veggies) and didn’t make use of any nuts since I didn’t have any on hand. Still AMAZING. So glad to have come across this recipe. So tasty and incredibly simple and easy to do. Thank you so much for sharing this one! This will definitely become a staple for me.
I’m so happy you were able to try this! It’s also great tossing them with crunchy bacon. 🙂
