Why these Roasted Brussels Sprouts with garlic are a winner…

These Roasted Brussels Sprouts with garlic could not be easier to make.  You just toss the sprouts in olive oil, lemon, and garlic.  If you are making them ahead of time I like to put all the ingredients in a ziplock bag and them when it’s time for dinner I can just pop them onto a sheet pan.  I, of course, use foil, because who likes cleaning up that thing?

Ingredients in Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Garlic

The ingredients in my Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Garlic are easy and simple.  This recipe only takes a handful of ingredients.

  • Brussels Sprouts: Cut them in half or quarters depending on how big they are.
  • Olive Oil: Olive Oil pairs perfectly with roasted vegetables and is a healthy fat.
  • Garlic Powder: You could use fresh garlic but I like the way garlic powder spreads the flavor evenly.
  • Lemon: Lemon brightens up the flavor of the side dish.

You also generously salt and pepper these to taste.

How to Make Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Garlic

Curious how to make Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Garlic?  I roast them at a high heat so they will purposefully get that gorgeous char… because that’s where the magic happens.  The Hubs HATES burnt food… he will not even eat toast with a little bit of dark brown… but LOVES these nearly charred sprouts.  I purposefully let them stay in the oven just long enough to almost caramelize.  The nearly charred parts are actually my favorite.

  1. Line a sheet pan with foil and pre-heat the oven.
  2. Toss the Brussels sprouts in the olive oil, lemon, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  3. Roast on high heat – 450 degrees – for 20 to 30 minutes.

You can either toss the sprouts in a bowl or put them in a ziplock bag in the fridge if you want to prep them ahead of time.

  • 12 ounces brussels sprouts, about 4 cups
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • cooking spray


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees and spray a foil lined cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  • Cut the sprouts in half.
  • In a large bowl mix together the brussels sprouts, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper or if prepping ahead of time but the sprouts in a large ziplock bag.
  • Put the sprouts on the cookie sheet.
  • Roast for 20-30 minutes, flipping each sprout with tongs half way through.


Prepare this in the morning and put the ziplock in the fridge. It will be ready to cook when you get home from work. The smaller the sprout, the shorter the cooking time, closer to 20 minutes. Larger spouts will take closer to 30 minutes. Watch the small ones carefully so they don't get too burnt.

    I swear you make all of the things that I love! Have never added lemon juice to my sprouts, must try!

      I buy a big bag of lemons every time I go to the store and use them all the time. They make everything taste fresher in my opinion.

    Haha! They sure trained you well 🙂 My white dog ‘fake pees’ in order to get a treat. I now have to watch him!

    love Brussel Sprouts…the other 4 people in my house not so much….will have to try this…not a lot of snow here in SC

    Good snowy morning Julie 🙂 , thanks for the recipe , I love brussel sprouts , they’re like little cabbages , yum , will try your recipe soon.
    I know it may sound like a mean trick , but you might try putting a few of the pup treats in a clear plastic container , feed the pooches those until the can is empty ( shouldn’t take long , lol ) but put the can where they can see it , they’ll see no more treats , and maybe leave you alone for a while 🙂

    I love Brussels sprouts and this recipe looks amazing. I’ve also never marinated mine before – great idea!

    You always post the foods I happen to have on hand! Not even joking! We just got brussels sprouts in our co-op veggie box a few days ago! My hubby hates them, but I LOVE them.. might just try your recipe! <3 –

    I have learned to break the pup-peroni into 1/2 inch pieces. When they come back in get that 1/2 inch piece and break that in half so each gets a piece of what they want so badly. (works like a charm)

    • JulieWunder February 26, 2015 at 9:12 am - Reply

      That stuff is like puppy crack!!!! I have never seen them so excited over treats. Thanks for the tip.

    Yum, this looks delicious! I love the idea of putting them in a marinade overnight. Luckily I have a bag of fresh brussels in my fridge right now, so this is very timely! Thanks for the recipe.

    • JulieWunder February 26, 2015 at 9:13 am - Reply

      Thanks Meg! I love them. The extra garlic powder and the char on the skins is amazing.

    Ha! No dogs to run us in this house, but that story is hilarious! I loooove roasted Brussels sprouts! Yum! And, I just read yesterday’s post–you nailed it with encouraging balance! Loved that whole post and your attitude. 🙂

    Your dogs aren’t crazy; they are smart!

    I love caramelized brussels sprouts! I made some last week and they are just so yummy.

    • JulieWunder February 26, 2015 at 9:14 am - Reply

      Toooo smart. And they work together against me. It is pretty funny.
      The char on the outside is my favorite part.

    You’ve got some smart pups there! Give them a brussels sprout the next time that they come in (if you can spare them)–likelihood is that they may be heaven to you, but they won’t be heaven to them!

    • JulieWunder February 26, 2015 at 9:15 am - Reply

      Hehehehh! Rhett would eat it right up but Reina would push it around the floor for awhile until Rhett would swoop in and eat it up. At least that would entertain them for awhile!

    I am obsessed with brussel sprouts and these look amazing. I have never marinated mine so I will definitely have to try that! I ususally do them with balsamic vinegar, a little brown sugar, and if I’m feeling really crazy……. Bacon!

    • JulieWunder February 26, 2015 at 9:16 am - Reply

      Yum! I’ll have to try balsamic next time. Such an easy, but feels fancy side dish.
