I have never liked brussels sprouts.  Just one of those things that never appealed to me.  But now I’m thinking that this is because I had never had them cooked any way other than steamed.  Roasted brussels sprouts?  That’s a whole different thing.  These honey garlic roasted brussels sprouts were delicious.

I discovered roasting brussels sprouts a couple of years ago, and I’m so happy I did.  Brussels sprouts are one of those sides that my husband loves, but I never cooked for him because I didn’t like them.  Roasting them has convinced me to actually want to make this little vegetable occasionally, which equates to a happy husband.  And happy kids.  Evidently they like brussels sprouts.  Whose kids are these anyways?

Granted, I did coat them in honey, so maybe it’s the honey they like?  That and the fact that my boys have decided that brussels sprouts make them strong and they’ll be faster, better hockey players if they eat them.  I’m kind of okay with this.

Hey, if it makes them gobble up their brussels sprouts, I’m all over that little idea.

Pretty sure all the veggies are going to be “make you better hockey players” food now.  Whatever works, am I right?

At any rate, these honey garlic brussels sprouts were quite tasty – and that’s from a self professed brussels sprouts hater.

So if any of my American friends are still looking for a Thanksgiving side dish this week, try these honey garlic roasted brussels sprouts.  They’re a bit sweet, tender on the inside, with some crispy edges that I adored.  If you like brussels sprouts, you’ll love these.  And if you don’t like them, try these ones, you may be surprised!  I was.

    I didn’t always love brussels sprouts but I really do now – especially roasted. It makes such a difference and this honey garlic combination sounds incredible! Can’t wait to try this :) Hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    I’ve been looking for a new recipe to try at Xmas this year. These sound amazing so i will try them out on my two sisters (one of which being your mother in law – ha ha) and the rest of the family. I’ll let you know how it goes. Love your blog and the way you write. Well done Stacey!

      I don’t know if I’d go that far, but way healthier! And definitely the best way to cook veggies in my opinion! Thanks Mir!

    I was never a big fan of brussel sprouts growing up, but now that I’ve had them prepared in different ways, I love them! Your honey garlic version sounds fantastic, Stacey! I love that you roasted them, too. Sounds like such a great side dish!

    • stacey says

      This is honestly the first time I’ve ever liked them, I even had them for lunch the next day after taking photos, which told me I must have liked them a lot! I think roasting makes all veggies better! Thanks Gayle!

    I can’t say I’ve ever made brussel sprouts….I actually don’t even think I’ve tried them! I am SUCH a wuss when it comes to vegetables, but honey and garlic are such an epic combination, these really sound good! I might just have to give them a try :)

    I loooove Brussels sprouts! Though that certainly wasn’t always the case. We just bought a whole stalk of them for the first time ever and we stared at it now sure how we wanted to prepare it. Made it last night though on the grill. Next time we grab a stalk, I will totally be trying this instead! Honey and garlic a a glaze sounds fantastic!

    • stacey says

      A stalk? Really? You can buy them like that? Of course, I live in the frozen north so maybe that’s why I’ve never seen them that way! I bought a bag. :) Thanks Sarah!

  7. says

    Yum!! I actually do really like brussels sprouts, and would eat them pretty much all the time. My husband on the other hand, is pretty darn picky about them! I think he would like this sweet and savory combo though!

    • stacey says

      Thanks Annie! Seriously, if I liked them, not to mention the pickiest preschooler in the world, I think most people would! :)

    These look amazing! I have to admit, there’s a brussels sprouts side dish recipe from Momofuku that I adore (made with fish sauce – weird I know, but SO GOOD) that I now make all the time for Thanksgiving. However the combination of honey and garlic on these sounds irresistible!
