Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Vinegar & Honey

5 stars based on 78 votes


These Brussels sprouts are roasted in a high temperature oven until golden brown and crisp, then tossed with a touch of balsamic vinegar and honey. Make extra — they’re as addictive as french fries!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Vinegar & Honey

Servings: 6
Total Time: 30 Minutes


  • 1-1/2 pounds brussels sprouts, halved, stems and ragged outer leaves removed*
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. In a large bowl, toss brussels sprouts with 2 tablespoons olive oil, kosher salt and pepper. Transfer the brussels sprouts to baking sheet and roast, stirring occasionally to ensure even browning, until tender and caramelized, about 20 minutes.
  3. Place brussels sprouts back in bowl. Add remaining tablespoon olive oil, balsamic vinegar and honey and toss to coat evenly. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary, then serve.
  4. *If you have some brussels sprouts that are very large, cut them into quarters. They should all be cut about the same size to ensure even cooking.

  • Do I cook the frozen Brussel sprouts before putting them in the oven?

    - maxine on October 11, 2016 Reply
    • Hi Maxine, I think fresh Brussels sprouts are best here, but you can use frozen if that’s all you have. I don’t think they’d need to be cooked first.

  • Are you oven roasting them fresh or are they frozen Brussels?

    Just did these for my dad’s birthday….and they disappeared in no time. I doubled the recipe as there were 10 of us, but I should have done more. I can’t imagine it feeding 12 as per the recipe. I also cooked on convection and a lot longer than 20 minutes (they were still hard at this point). These will be one of my regular recipes from now on!

    - neila c brantley on September 24, 2016 Reply
    • Yes Nelia, Yes, that will work. Just reheat them in a 350-degree oven when you’re ready to serve them (and wait to toss them with the remaining olive oil, balsamic and honey until right before serving).

  • Hi! I am planning on making this dish for tonight’s Seder. There are going to be 30 people so am making a huge amount. I plan on roasting them in a large disposable roasting pan. Should I stir the sprouts half-way through cooking or are they fine left alone? Also, I am guessing cooking time remains the same, yes?

    Thank you!

      Ha!…I’m actually doing the opposite. Substituting the brussel sprouts for cabbage in a corned beef and cabbage pizza recipe. I think it will work, the acidity of the vinegar will balance the sweetness of the cheese, corned beef, and roasted potato slices. Just have to be careful not to over caramelize prepping them so they don’t get burned on the pizza.

    I prepared these roasted Brussels sprouts with balsamic vinegar and honey for the first time to serve as a side dish with dinner. My husband is not a big fan of “little cabbages” as he so affectionately calls them. To hear him state that “These are awesome!” made me glad I chose your recipe.

    I had a great experience with homegrown Brussels sprouts when I was much younger. They were very mild and tender, and I couldn’t get enough. I’ve been looking to duplicate that taste ever since. This dish came closest, probably since I used fresh, not frozen, sprouts. The balsamic addition made it far more interesting to my more mature palate., too. But my final conclusion is that fully mature, large Brussels sprouts are just too intense for my taste. If I should come across some teeny tiny sprouts in the future, I’ll use this recipe.

    - Shelley on December 8, 2015 Reply
  • Hello- I had a recipe I was going to use that called for balsamic, lemon juice, s&p, garlic powder and part reggiano. But your recipe sounds better- I like the idea of cutting the tartness of the balsamic with honey. Do you think you could add a little parm reggiano to this or would it not work with the honey? Thanks so much (I can’t use bacon as one of my guests is a vegetarian.) and happy Thanksgiving!

    I selected this recipe because I had some great roasted brussels sprouts at a restaurant recently. Made this yesterday and loved them!

    I bought brussels sprouts on the stalk – cut them off, halved them, bigger ones I quartered. I roasted a bit longer than the recipe called for and the balsamic/honey glaze lent the right amount of tang and sweetness. I got a lot of compliments and will make it again.

Got a request from a teenager to make roasted brussel sprouts for her special dinner – found this recipe and it was a hit – I’ve made it several times in the past 2 months.

    Part of my weekly routine is to walk to the local grocery store, pick up some sales produce and then come home and cook them in new and interesting ways. This week had brussels sprouts on sale and I opted to use the Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Vinegar & Honey recipe. On the first try it came out phenomenal. Even with never having cooked brussels sprouts before the recipe was simple and clear and took only a short time to prepare serving three. I would definitely recomend this recipe for anyone looking for a simple healthy dish for your day.

    (On a note, I’m considering substituting the last Tbsp of olive oil for walnut oil for a little extra bit of nuttiness and nutrition. I might even consider some shaved almonds to be mixed in to give the recipe some variety to keep it fresh and interesting.)

    These are amazing! I started a grain-free, low carb, low sugar, diet about two months ago. (So far I’ve lost 20 lbs I could never lose before!) I miss bread and pasta and sweet treats, but have gotten over them. I have to tell you that the first taste sensation I received when I popped the first lil sprout into my mouth was that of a donut hole! Weird, I know, but; nonetheless, true! What a delightful surprise for this ex-donut eater! They are yummy!

    These were amazing! I don’t like brussels sprouts that much, but these were addicting. I added a 1/4 tsp brown sugar at the end because the balsamic vinegar was a little bit too strong, but my whole family loves these and I can’t wait to make them again. The simplicity is a huge plus as well. The only problem? I didn’t make enough :)

    Loved these! I had never had brussels sprouts growing up, but on my quest for healthier food for my family, I gave these a try. I used a sugar free honey and during the last 5-10 minutes, I added fresh minced garlic to the pan. After I was finished cooking, I transfered them from the pan to a serving dish and topped them with fresh grated parmesan cheese, and covered them for a few minutes to let the cheese “melt”. I definitely will be on the lookout for more fresh brussels sprouts so I can make these again!

  • I couldn’t’t find fresh Brussels sprouts , so I thawed the frozen ones,and everyone loved them,a granddaughters said she doesn’t’t like Brussels sprouts,but tried these and loved them.

  • Great recipe! Hubby and I love brussel sprouts, but kids tend to ‘dislike before even trying’. I did not have honey on hand so I used a little bit of brown sugar. Recipe was a huge success! One note, if using a convection oven reduce temperature by 10 degrees and cooking time by 5 minutes.

  • Jenn, These brussel sprouts were great. Didn’t know how they’d go over with the family, but they were gone. Great recipe for a healthy side dish — Thanks.

  • I’ll toss in toasted pine nuts ot pecans at end (can find at Trader Joes or toast yourself). Maybe test a good meyer lemon olive oil to give it another twist. Could be really yumm(l)y.

  • WOW!!! best I’ve ever had and I made them myself! Unbelievable recipe. I did deviate on the amounts of honey and balsamic but the bitter sweet was just perfect. OMG people you have to make this!

  • I have a recipe that only uses olive oil, pine nuts, garlic cloves, fresh or dried rosemary and just a pinch of salt, given to me by a workout website I follow. I am all about eating healthy and this recipe is simple and the best I’ve tasted so far! I am not a huge fan of brussels sprouts but eating clean is all about experimenting with new recipes so I gave them a try. Will have to try this one and tweak it a bit, but def. will try as well!

  • I didn’t add any honey to my recipe, but I think these turned out great. I had a bear of a time getting the outer shells to stop falling off and therefore charred a few of those, but otherwise they were delicious.

    I’m not sure I created a total convert in my husband, but nonetheless, he ate them and seemed content.

    I don’t think it really needs the honey, so I’ll continue to leave it out. I quite like the bitterness of the balsamic and even added a bit of white balsamic. I served this with pasta.

  • I never liked sprouts and then I tried this recipe and now I make them often! I tried them sans honey and vinegar, in the skillet using evoo instead with garlic, fresh ground pepper and a tablespoon of butter – great. Also, a splash of chicken broth made them pop.

  • I have made this recipe repeatedly, just for myself. I have gone from a Brussels sprouts hater to a lover with this recipe which first brings out all the wonderful flavor by roasting, and then, taking it over the top by combining the finished product with balsamic vinegar and honey. I sadly eat this like it is candy, and have to force myself to save some for leftovers. Thank you so much.

  • Brussels Sprouts are one of my favorite vegetables. My mother-in-law hates them so I’m not allowed to bring them to Thanksgiving dinner which breaks my heart! I always make my own sprouts to treat myself when we return home from the festivities. It’s not a proper holiday without Brussels Sprouts. I will definitely add your version to my recipe box.

  • I am a huge fan of Brussels Sprouts and love to try new ways of preparation. I have used this recipe and the results were delicious! As a twist, I left the sprouts on the stalk (just trimming the ones on the bottom off so the stalk would lie flat on my pan) and roasted. Easy and delicious, too!

  • I made this last night for Thanksgiving, and my friend who claimed she hated Brussels sprouts LOVED it! I think the honey and balsamic vinegar really enhanced the flavor. Our guests took all the Brussels sprouts leftover, so I’m dying to make some more. When I tasted them for the first time, my eyes lit up because they were the best Brussels sprouts I’ve ever had. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thanks!!
