Combine the Salt, Pepper and Olive Oil in a Small Bowl
Brush the Olive Oil Mixture on the Brussel Sprouts. Make sure to get into all of the grooves and turn the stalk to have it thoroughly coated
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
Place the sheet pan in the oven and set the timer for 15-17 minutes. When the timer goes off, rotate the stalk ⅓ of the way around
Repeat this two more times for a total of 45 - 50 minutes. All sides of the Brussel Sprouts Stalk should be well cooked and a golden brown.
After cooling, carefully cut off the individual Brussel Sprouts.
Tip: I will usually cut the sprouts in half again after I remove them from the stalk. They will sometimes get a bit too large to eat without cutting them again.Variations:
Balsamic Vinegar. Brush on a tablespoon or two of balsamic vinegar for a fun tangy taste.
Bacon, Bacon! Serve this with bacon. Everything goes good with bacon, right? Roasted Brussel Sprouts are no exception!
Garlic. Sprinkle some minced garlic over the brussel sprouts during the last 20 minutes.
Honey. Mix some honey in with the olive oil or balsamic vinegar for a bit of a sweeter taste. If your kids aren’t big fans of brussel sprouts, a bit of honey may help! My teenager stands by sheet pan when it comes out of the oven just waiting until he can have a plate of them.
Adding Cheese: Wait until the end to sprinkle on the parmesan. You can wait until you are done cutting the brussel sprouts off of the stalk before adding the parmesan if you are afraid it will melt on the sheet pan. The pan roast Brussel sprouts will still be warm enough for the cheese to melt slightly.Storage: If you are able to, it's best to store in the refrigerator and it will keep for a few weeks, unlike a lot of veggies you buy and they go back within a few days. If you can't store the whole stalk in the refrigerator, cut the Brussel sprouts off and they should keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. Freezer Friendly: These freeze great fully cooked. It is best to "flash freeze" these on a sheet pan and then once frozen, transfer to a freezer safe container or Ziplock bag. Flash freezing them will allow them to be frozen and not stuck together.
