How to Make Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Garlic
STEP 1: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Optionally, line a medium baking sheet with foil for easy clean up.
STEP 2: Place the brussels sprouts and garlic on the baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and arrange in a single layer.
STEP 3: Bake for 30 – 40 minutes, flipping halfway through to ensure even cooking. The brussels sprouts should be tender and the outer leaves should be crispy. Depending on the size of your sprouts and personal preference, cooking time may vary. Test for doneness starting around 30 minutes.
Serve immediately, optionally with additional salt and pepper to taste.

How long to cook the brussels sprouts
The cooking time for this recipe varies greatly depending on the size of your brussels sprouts and personal preference. Your brussels sprouts should be tender all the way through (poke one with a fork to test) and the outside should be browned and crispy. I find that ours can take up to 40 – 45 minutes.
How to cut the brussels sprouts:
To prepare you brussels spouts, slice them in half and trim the stems if preferred. If you have some sprouts that are very large, slice them into quarters to help them cook evenly.Print
