Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Warm Honey Glaze image

These roasted brussels sprouts get a fair amount of spice from the crushed red pepper flakes, which cuts through the acidity and sweetness of the glaze, but if you're spice-averse, feel free to leave them out!

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 10

1 1/2 lb. brussels sprouts, trimmed, halved
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp. kosher salt, plus more
Freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar
3/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
3 Tbsp. unsalted butter
3 scallions, thinly sliced on a diagonal
1 tsp. finely grated lemon zest


  • Place a rack in bottom third of oven and set a rimmed baking sheet on top; preheat oven to 450°F. Toss brussels sprouts and oil in a large bowl; season with salt and black pepper.
  • Carefully remove baking sheet from oven. Using tongs, arrange brussels sprouts, cut side down, on baking sheet. Roast on bottom rack until tender and deeply browned, 20-25 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, bring honey to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring often, until honey is a deep amber color but not burnt (it will be foamy), about 3 minutes. Remove from heat; add vinegar and red pepper flakes, if using, and whisk until sauce is smooth (it will bubble quite aggressively when you first add the vinegar). Set saucepan over medium heat, add butter and remaining 1/2 tsp. salt, and cook, whisking constantly, until glaze is glossy, bubbling, and slightly thickened, about 4 minutes.
  • Transfer brussels sprouts to a large bowl. Add glaze and toss to coat. Transfer to a platter and top with scallions and lemon zest.

These were a bit too sweet for me, but my kids loved them.

The sprouts were a bit overcooked for my taste, but the glaze was really good.

I'm not a huge fan of brussels sprouts, but these were actually really good. The glaze was the perfect amount of sweetness and the sprouts were cooked perfectly.

These were really good! I used maple syrup for the glaze and it was amazing.

These were okay. I think I prefer my brussels sprouts roasted with olive oil and salt.

I've made this recipe several times and it's always a hit. The sprouts are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, and the glaze is the perfect balance of sweet and savory.

These were so delicious! I halved the recipe and it was the perfect amount for two people. I also added a bit of chopped bacon to the sprouts before roasting and it was a great addition.

A bit too sweet for my preference, but still good.

I used less honey than called for and they were still very sweet. Instead of maple syrup, I used 1/4 cup of brown sugar and it turned out great!

These were incredible! I've made roasted brussels sprouts many times before, but this recipe was by far the best. My family couldn't get enough of them
