I originally wrote this post six years ago, but I’m bringing it back because truly this is so good and not just for Thanksgiving, but I do want to tell you that last year I started a Thanksgiving group Pinterest Board, and I urge you to follow, as you will see many very high quality bloggers sharing their Thanksgiving Recipes.
I usually roast them. That is my secret and I promise you that they will be one of the favorite holiday traditions for years to come. This is how I came to love something I used to hate. Traveling from boil to roast changed my relationship.
Yes, because brussels sprouts are beautiful and available FRESH from September to February. Not only are they delicious (when cooked properly), they are a super food. Check out the amazing health benefits here.
Is there a recipe?
Actually there is a master recipe that is so simple that it makes it hard to believe that so many brussels sprouts were doomed to in the past to be destroyed by boiling. Roast quickly with olive oil and salt. From this recipe, you can add in all sorts of ingredients, such as nuts, dried fruits, fresh fruits, or cheese.
First start with the freshest brussels sprouts you can find, right on the stalk, as they are still drawing nutrients.

- I use a stone baking sheet, and convection roast setting, which
- quickens cooking time. Some outer leaves will darken and get crispy. That’s my favorite part.
