Steaming and boiling use moist heat, and moist heat can make Brussel Sprouts mushy and stinky—not a good combo. Give them the treatment they deserve by roasting them instead. If they’re cut in half, roast them with the cut side down to make the most out of their sweet roasted flavor.

Can you roast Brussel sprouts ahead of time and reheat?
Up to 24 hours in advance, cook the brussels sprouts and bacon for 25 minutes. Let them cool, cover them, then put the baking sheet into your fridge. Once you take the turkey out of the oven, put the brussels in for 15 minutes to finish cooking.
Why are my brussel sprouts not crispy?
Not using enough oil. The other secret to ridiculously crispy Brussels sprouts is tossing them in plenty of oil. We like to use olive oil, but plain vegetable oil is great too. If the sprouts are well-coated, they’ll caramelize and char instead of simply softening in the oven.
Should I cut brussel sprouts in half to roast?
Place the sprouts cut -side down: Trim and halve the sprouts and roast them with their cut side against the baking sheet. The cut side will caramelize beautifully while the outer leaves crisp. Roast them right along with the Brussels sprout halves; they turn into incredibly crisp little chips.
Should sprouts be boiled?
Sprouts should be boiled according to their size, but as a rule of thumb, sprouts should be left to boil around 3 to 5 minutes to ensure enough harmful bacteria is destroyed, and that the sprouts are soft and tender.
Can you overcook brussel sprouts?
