If you’re a Brussels sprouts lover like I am, then you have to try this recipe.  It is so simple, and the end result is perfectly roasted sprouts covered in a sweet and tangy balsamic glaze.  Everyone in our household loves these, including my four-year-old son, James!

Why this Recipe Works:

  • Using only a few simple ingredients, this is one of the easiest roasted veggie recipes out there.
  • The roasting process and the balsamic glaze helps make these Brussels sprouts slightly sweet and tangy with the perfect touch of salt.

Where can I find Balsamic Glaze?

  • Stores such as Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods typically carry it and can be found in the vinegar section.  It may also be called “Barrel-Aged Balsamic” or “Reduced Balsamic.”
  • Balsamic Glaze can also be found on Amazon.
  • You can also easily make your own balsamic glaze using regular balsamic vinegar by following THIS recipe.

How to Make Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts:

1. Preheat your oven to 400°. While you’re waiting for the oven to heat, prep your Brussels sprouts. For medium-sized or traditional-sized sprouts, simply trim the stubby ends and then cut them in half. For larger sprouts, trim the ends and then quarter them. For a shortcut, buy pre-cut Brussels such as what I have here:

2. Place Brussels sprouts in a mixing bowl and toss with garlic powder, salt, pepper, and oil. Tip: No need to wash your bowl right away – you’ll be using it again after the Brussels have roasted!

3. Spread out your sprouts evenly on a baking sheet (or two), cut side down. Tip: Line your sheets with parchment paper for easy clean up!

4. Put your sprouts in the oven to roast.  At the 15 minute mark, take the Brussels out of the oven to flip/stir, then reduce your oven temperature to 350°. Roast an additional 15-25 minutes or until fork tender and the edges are brown and crispy.

6. Transfer your roasted sprouts back to your mixing bowl and toss with balsamic glaze to evenly coat. Serve in your dish of choice, and enjoy!

I’ve tried something similar to this but ended up with more burnt than brown. I like your version better and will try it very soon.
Thanks

Thanks! Yes – I find the key is to toss in that glaze post roasting to prevent that from happening.
