Notes

  1. To make clean up easier, line the sheet pan with silicone baking mat or spray with pan release.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425 °. Be sure it reaches 425 ° F before putting the Brussels sprouts in the oven. Roasting requires high heat.
  3. Use fresh Brussels sprouts, not frozen.
  4. Distribute the Brussels sprouts evenly so that they can brown. If they are crowded on the pan, they will steam and will not brown.
  5. Do not use too much oil otherwise, the Brussels sprouts will not roast properly.
  6. Flip the Brussel sprouts halfway through baking so that they will brown evenly.
