We love roasting Brussels sprouts in the oven spread out in a single layer on a baking sheet so that they cook evenly.
It is the perfect technique, and there is no sauteing to worry about and no extra dishes to wash!
Just throw everything on a large baking sheet and roast in a hot oven.
How to Prep Brussels Sprouts
Brussels sprout are very easy to prepare.
When purchasing them, look for Brussels sprouts that are firm and don't have any shriveled or withered leaves.
Use a paring knife to carefully trim the bottom of the sprouts and then cut them in half. Be sure to halve the sprouts lengthwise to keep the leaves intact at their core.
Aim to cook your Brussels sprouts within 3-4 days of purchase, as they tend to lose sweetness as they age.
