Roasted Brussels sprouts are absolutely delicious and I’m so glad that Brussels sprouts are making a comeback thanks to the magic of roasting. To this day, my dad still doesn’t love Brussels sprouts and I’m convinced it’s because he had to eat his sprouts steamed or boiled as a child. Let’s face it, boiled Brussels sprouts are no one’s idea of a good time.
But, here is the good news – a few simple, and flavorful, ingredients plus a hot oven can go a LONG way in giving you Brussels sprouts you actually want to eat. Roasting Brussels sprouts with just oil, salt, and pepper at 425 degrees can make a huge difference in their taste. They suddenly go from being boring and sad, to full of crisp yet tender deliciousness that I know you’ll actually enjoy.

The whole grain mustard seeds mellow out to a milder flavor after roasting. And, when the whole grain mustard is combined with sweet honey, they grains begin to caramelize a bit which gives the Brussels sprouts even more delicious flavor and texture.
