Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Lemon Recipe

This post may contain affiliate links. See my disclosure policy for more details.

Brussels sprouts have a bad rap straight out the starting gate—they look like little green shrunken heads and smell less than stellar so I can hardly blame myself or anyone else for not wanting to eat them—but as I’ve recently discovered the jokes on us; try this recipe and you’ll discover for yourself how wonderful they can taste. Who knew? I certainly didn’t but now I do.

The first step is to roast the brussel sprouts in a baking tray. Toss with olive oil and seasoning before roasting.

Finish the dish off with fresh squeezed lemon juice and butter. A few breadcrumbs on top will give it a little crunch.
