But I think it’s high time we gave the humble sprout some love.

BEST Ever Roasted Brussels Sprouts and More!

1. Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

These garlic-roasted Brussels sprouts are easy to make and only require a few ingredients: chopped sprouts, garlic, butter, paprika, and salt. 

Garlic, salt, and butter are kind of a culinary godsend. And once they hit the oven, the paprika helps the sprouts achieve a satisfying golden color. 

Serve alongside a tasty protein such as grilled chicken, or add them to a creamy pasta dish. I like to serve these with mac and cheese!

2. Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Vinegar and Honey 

This killer side dish is a terrific option for your next potluck! 

The honey glaze helps neutralize the Brussels sprouts’ bitter flavor, making them ideal for picky eaters. 

Even if your family are staunch Brussel-haters, this recipe is worth a look. It’s so simple to make and comes together in just 30 minutes.

3. Brussels Sprouts Casserole 

With plenty of bacon and cheese, this casserole is the perfect way to sneak this healthy green into your next meal. 

Creamy, smoky, and packed with plenty of cheesy goodness, you might even forget the veggies are there!

Be sure to shave the Brussels sprouts as thinly as possible so they soak up all those flavors. Feel free to buy them pre-shredded to save on time.

4. Kale and Brussels Sprout Salad

I know what you’re thinking: Brussel sprouts and kale? How does adding another bitter green to the mix make sprouts more appealing?

Trust me, this bright and crunchy dish infuses colorful winter veggies with plenty of yummy flavors you won’t be able to resist.

The pecans are nutty and buttery, while the cranberries bring a delightful sweet chewy note to every forkful.

5. Balsamic-Glazed Brussels Sprouts 

Who says Brussels sprouts can’t be decadent? 

Just add some balsamic vinegar, give them a quick roast in the oven, and get ready to take tons of photos for your Instagram!

You’ll toss chopped Brussels sprouts in a punchy mix of balsamic vinegar, olive oil, Parmesan cheese, and red pepper flakes.

So every bite is sweet, spicy, savory, and tangy. Delish!

6. Crispy Deep Fried Brussels Sprouts 

If you’re struggling to get your family on board with sprouts, it’s time to bust out the deep fryer!

While it’s not super healthy, it’s a fantastic way to give French fries a break.

And these Brussels sprouts are so impossibly light, crispy, and packed with flavor, you won’t miss the fries one bit!

Once fried, toss them in sweet and tangy Asian-inspired seasonings, then top with deep-fried shallots.

7. Sautéed Brussels Sprouts

The era of boiled and mushy Brussels sprouts is over!

Instead, these sautéed Brussels sprouts are crispy on the outside and super tender on the inside. 

While they’re perfect with just a little salt and pepper, you can dress these babies up however you like.

I think they’re best with balsamic vinegar and pine nuts for added crunch.

8. Garlic Lemon and Parmesan Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Need a simple and delicious side dish in a flash? Look no further than this scrumptious garlic, lemon, and Parmesan Brussels sprout recipe.

This simple dish doesn’t use many ingredients, but it’s still packed with massive flavor. 

Just slice the Brussels sprouts in half, and toss them with oil, garlic, lemon juice, and cheese. Then, roast until crispy and fragrant.

How easy is that?

9. Maple Balsamic Brussels Sprouts and Cranberries 

This recipe is like autumn on a plate. But while it’s perfect for Thanksgiving dinner, it’s so tasty you’ll make it year-round. 

Simple to make and packed with rich flavors, these sprouts pair well with pretty much everything, from chicken and turkey to thick and juicy pork chops.

So there’s no need to even ask what to eat with Brussels sprouts.

10. Grilled Brussels Sprouts

Why let burgers and hotdogs have all of the fun on the grill?

These skewered and grilled Brussels sprouts are tender, crunchy, and jam-packed with summery flavors. 

Before hitting the grill, toss the sprouts in plenty of rich seasonings, including fresh parsley and garlic.

A touch of lemon juice lifts those decadent flavors and keeps things light. Serve these with chicken or fish.

11. Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Roasting Brussels sprouts is probably the best way to celebrate the natural goodness of this delicious veggie. 

And this recipe is no exception. 

It brings together simple ingredients you likely have on hand and whips together in a flash. So, this is an excellent recipe if you don’t have much time. 

Toss them with bacon, cheese, and toasted nuts to amp up the flavors.

12. Air Fryer Brussels Sprout

I love any reason to bust out my Air Fryer. And this recipe is one I come back to again and again. 

It’s nearly impossible to mess up this simple dish, and the lack of oil makes it super healthy. 

Oh, and the creamy dipping sauce is a must-make. They’re just not the same without it!

It uses creamy mayonnaise with maple syrup for sweetness and stone-ground mustard for a bit of added tang. Wow!

13. Kung Pao Brussels Sprouts 

These Kung Pao Brussels sprouts capture the magic of Kung Pao chicken…without the chicken. 

They’re rich in sweet and salty flavors and a heavenly Asian-inspired sauce. 

A blend of sesame oil, honey (or maple syrup), rice vinegar, soy sauce, and garlic is all it takes to make your sprouts craveable.

Top with red pepper flakes for a kick of spice, or peanuts, fresh cilantro, and green onions for something more mild.

14. Crispy Smashed Brussels Sprouts

You’ve heard of smashed potatoes, but what about smashed Brussels sprouts? 

Smashing Brussels sprouts provides a larger surface area for flavor and texture. So, just like their potato cousins, they’re more crispy and incredibly flavorful.

Toss with simple spices, and don’t forget the cheese!

15. Sweet Potato Brussels Sprout Hash

Brussel sprouts for breakfast? Yes, please!

This incredibly satisfying and savory breakfast hash is a beautiful way to fit a helping or two of veggies in first thing. 

The sweet potatoes pair perfectly with Brussels sprouts and salty ham, and it all comes together with a cracked egg on top. Yum!

16. Creamy Garlic Parmesan Brussels Sprouts & Bacon 

Even if Brussels sprouts are low on your list of favorite veggies, this creamy and cheesy skillet is hard to resist. 

That’s all thanks to fan favorites cheese, bacon, and garlic!

It’s a combo everyone loves and ensures your whole family will go nuts for these sprouts!

17. Harvest Chicken Skillet with Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts

This one-skillet meal bursts with fall flavors and comes together in under an hour.

It’s rich and meaty with plenty of veggie goodness, thanks to the sprouts and sweet potatoes.

There’s also Granny Smith apples in the mix for a pleasant hint of sweetness.

18. Spicy Maple Dijon Grilled Brussels Sprouts 

Brussels sprouts are naturally bitter and even a little sweet. So, why not enhance those flavors with some spice?

You’ll start with cayenne pepper, mustard, and garlic, then throw in some maple to keep it all balanced.

Skewer the sprouts and toss them on the grill with the burgers. Pretty soon, they’ll be caramelized and scrummy.

19. Brussels Sprouts Gratin

If you’re tired of the same old potato recipes, give this sprout dish a spin.

It combines all the creamy and cheesy goodness of potatoes au gratin with added leafy greens. 

Again, slice the sprouts very finely, or opt for pre-shredded. That way, they cook perfectly and soak up all the creamy sauce.

Gruyère and Parmesan cheese ensure this is nutty, cheesy, and slightly salty. It’s a flawless cheese blend, so don’t make any substitutions!

20. Brussels Sprouts Tacos

Using veggies instead of chicken or beef in tacos is such a genius idea.

It cuts down on calories and makes them less heavy (though just as hearty). That means you can have an extra one!

Featuring chimichurri sauce, black beans, jalapeños, and corn, these veggie tacos are just as tasty as any meaty recipe.

And with all of these rich flavors, no one will miss the meat. 

21. Peanut Butter Sriracha Roasted Brussels Sprouts

This killer side dish packs so much into every forkful, you might not want to share.

That Asian-inspired sauce is creamy, nutty, spicy, and sweet. And to be honest, it’s tasty on everything.

But it’s extra yummy on crispy sprouts!

Serve this with grilled chicken or baked salmon. 

22. Honey Sriracha Brussels Sprouts 

Try this honey and Sriracha recipe if savory peanut butter isn’t your jam.

It’s just as sweet and spicy, but it’s sticky rather than creamy.

It’s also effortless to make, and you likely have everything on hand already.

23. Fried Brussels Sprouts with Cider Vinaigrette and Bacon Crumbs 

Here’s another fantastic deep-fried recipe that’s sure to leave your family wanting more.

Between the crispy sprouts, salty bacon, and tangy cider vinaigrette, you don’t even need a protein on the side.

These are so good, your family will forget all about those potatoes!

24. Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad

This fresh and impossibly crunchy shaved Brussels sprouts salad gives any leafy bowl a run for its money.

Paired with crunchy veggies, seasonal Honeycrisp apples, and dried cranberries, it’s a flawless blend of savory, crunchy, chewy, and sweet.

It’s just what you need on those warm fall days when it’s not quite sweater weather.

25. Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples and Maple Mustard Dressing

Rustic, packed with unique flavors, and so simple to whip together, this roasted sprout recipe is the one to beat.

It includes roughly chopped apples for sweetness, along with bright flavors of apple cider vinegar, mustard, and maple syrup dressing. 

It’s a super simple side to make on hectic weeknights and pairs particularly well with pork chops.

26. Bang Bang Brussels Sprouts

This gluten-free side dish is a terrific way to spice up Brussels sprouts.

Tossed in a blend of Sriracha, cayenne pepper, and oil, these babies are roasted in the oven until they’re insanely crisp.

But it doesn’t end there!

Once they’re cooked, toss them in a mix of creamy Greek yogurt (or a vegan substitute), sweet chili sauce, hot sauce, and rice vinegar.


27. Sweet and Spicy Brussels Sprouts

I should start with a warning here: make these once, and you’ll make them for every potluck and dinner party for years to come!

Smothered in a dressing of hoisin sauce, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, and garlic paste, they’re tangy, sweet, and insanely savory.

Then, once they hit the oven, the sauce caramelizes into a rich golden brown crust that’s impossible to resist. 

28. Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries and Prosciutto 

Speaking of hard to resist: the salty, savory, and meaty notes in this Brussels sprouts and prosciutto dish are to die for.

Add some tangy dried cranberries for a chewy contrast, and it’ll be a hit at your next holiday party!

29. Brussels Sprouts Pizza with Balsamic Red Onions 

Step aside, pepperoni, because this Brussels sprouts pizza is the new top dog!

Healthy and oh-so-satisfying, you’ll use packaged pizza dough to keep the prep light.

Cook the Brussels sprouts in a savory and slightly sweet balsamic glaze, then add sliced red onion for a punch of peppery flavor.

Top it off with veggies and mozzarella cheese before baking until golden and bubbly. Enjoy!

30. Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Cinnamon Butternut Squash with Pecans and Cranberries 

Rich and decadent, this dish is fully loaded with fun fall flavors.

The roasted Brussels sprouts are wonderfully savory next to the sweet butternut squash, buttery pecans, and chewy cranberries. 

Every bite is salty, sweet, and nutty. It’s an excellent option for a weekend meal or your next holiday party.
