Prepare The Brussel Sprouts
Preheat your oven to 425°F. For this recipe as written (for two servings), you will need about ¾ pound of fresh Brussel spouts. Typically this will be about 10-12 whole Brussel sprouts, depending on their size.
Trim off the stem ends (seen in the 2nd photo below). Some of the small outer leaves may fall off, but don’t worry! That is to be expected.
Once the stem end has been trimmed off, slice each Brussel sprout in half length-wise. Discard the stem and any of the outer leaves that have fallen off.
Place the Brussel sprout halves in a medium sized bowl. Drizzle 1½ Tablespoons of olive oil over them, and gently toss, to coat them with the oil.
A Little Seasoning
Once coated with the olive oil, sprinkle the Brussel sprouts with salt, pepper, garlic powder and a bit of onion powder. Stir gently, to evenly distribute the seasoning over the veggies.
Bake The Brussel Sprouts
Place the seasoned Brussel sprouts, cut side down, on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. This will also help to create less mess to clean up!
However, if you don’t have access to parchment paper, place the Brussel sprouts directly on a baking sheet, leaving a small space between each one.
NOTE: I don’t recommended using a silpat or a silicon mat, because you want the charring that occurs on the sprouts when in contact with parchment paper or a metal baking sheet.
Bake the Brussel sprouts at 425°F. for 23-25 minutes. When done, the Brussel sprouts will be slightly “charred” and crispy on the outside, but very tender on the inside!
Serve The Roasted Brussel Sprouts For Two
Use a spatula to transfer the roasted Brussel sprouts for two onto a platter or individual serving plates. See how browned they are?
We enjoy them this way, but if you prefer them less browned on the outside, simply peel off the outer leaf before serving or remove from the oven a bit early.
The flavor is quite nice as well, thanks to the simple seasoning on them. They may look browned on the outside, but they cut easily, because they’re quite soft inside.
This Brussel sprout side dish can be served with a variety of main dish meats. We enjoyed them (this time), served alongside pork chops and sweet potatoes. YUM!
