The key to unbeatable flavor in these Roasted Brussels Sprouts is the hot oven temperature. When you combine that with a little olive oil and garlic, you have the best browned Brussels sprouts you ever did see. These are the perfect easy side dish to so many meals from my Creamy Tuscan Chicken to my Instant Pot Beef and Shells!



2 lbs Brussels sprouts, 8 cups whole, ends trimmed and cut in half

2 tablespoons olive oil, avocado oil, or bacon grease

1 clove garlic, minced or 1 teaspoon garlic powder, see notes

1/2 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


Preheat the oven to 450ºF.

Toss the halved Brussels sprouts together with the olive oil, garlic, sea salt, and black pepper on a large baking sheet. Make sure the garlic is thoroughly mixed in through the sprouts.

Spread out the Brussels sprouts evenly and flip them to be flat side down on the baking sheet.

Roast the Brussels sprouts in the oven until browned and tender, 15-20 minutes, rotating halfway through. The cooking time will vary depending on the size of your Brussels sprouts. Mine measured on average 1 1/2″x2″ before cutting them.

You may need to place your baking sheet on the bottom of your oven for part of the baking time. Experiment to see what works well with your oven.

When the Brussels sprouts are done, serve immediately.


Be sure you garlic powder doesn’t contain salt, or adjust your seasoning accordingly.

Use a good quality baking sheet to roast these. The thin cookie sheets warp at high temperatures and will cook unevenly and burn in places.

These brown perfectly in the middle rack of my oven. But when I’ve cooked them in different ovens, I’ve found they don’t always brown on the middle rack, and I cook them on the bottom rack for half the cooking time.
