I’m back! At least I hope I am! I’ve been having some boring and totally annoying blogging problems. In fact, I’ve written this post 5 times over the past week and each time it doesn’t save and publish. The good news is that I now know every single step to this recipe by heart and could cook it in my sleep… although that’s not really saying much because it’s a REALLY easy recipe! And did I mention delicious too?


I love Brussels sprouts but my kids were not sold on the fact that they can taste really good! I mean they smell a bit powerful and they are not that pretty, but if you can get past that you are in for a real treat!

I love traditional roasted Brussels, but I wanted something a bit more special. Rosemary is special to me, so is brown butter. Put them together and you have something amazing!




  • 2 bushels of Brussels sprouts, washed and sliced in half
  • 1/4 cup of butter or vegan butter
  • 1 tbs. of rosemary
  • Olive oil spray
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Spray Brussels sprouts with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Pour Brussels sprouts on a cookie sheet and roast at 425 degrees for 30-45 minutes until they are nicely browned and soft on the inside.
  3. While the Brussels are roasting, add butter to a saute pan and cook the butter on medium heat until it is brown.
  4. Add rosemary to the butter and continue simmering for 3 minutes.
  5. Coat the Brussels sprouts with the rosemary butter.
  6. Serve immediately.

And just for the record… my kiddos are all Brussels sprout lovers now! These taste THAT good!

  • I have never enjoyed Brussell Sprout but these actually look really good! I’m going to have to give them another chance!

  • It has been a very long time since I have tried Brussels sprouts. Probably because I tried them once when I was preggo and now scared to try them again. But this recipe actually looks amazing. I want to try it and see if I can like them now.

  • I love this recipe! Now this is a way to get my son to happily eat his brussel sprouts! It’s all about having a good recipe like this to get toddlers to eat their veggies.

  • I love brussel sprouts. I will have to try this and at least enjoy them myself. My kids can be so picky about trying new things, even if they are good! I’ll try to get them to give them a chance.

  • These look so delicious! I love brussel sprouts and don’t make them nearly enough. Thanks for a new way of cooking them, we needed it.

  • My son loves brussel sprouts so this would be a win/win recipe for him. I am going to try it and see if I can tempt the other members of my family to eat brussel sprouts too.

  • We love roasted cabbage and I understand brussel sprouts are part of the same family. Yet I cannot convince my husband (who does most of the cooking) that we might actually like roasted brussel sprouts.

  • I haven’t made brown butter in a long time – now you’ve got me craving some 🙂 I’ve seen a lot of Brussels sprouts recipes lately around the interwebs, I think it’s a hint to try feeding them to my family!

  • Wow, this sounds really interesting!! You know… I am not sure if I have ever even had a brussel sprout before… sounds like a good way to try them 1st!

  • This is exactly how I make my brussel sprouts, except I hadn’t tried the rosemary! I love rosemary, so I will be doing this my next go around for sure!

  • These look so yummy. I’m usually not a brussel sprouts fan, but I would definitely try this! 🙂

  • i don’t care for brussels sprouts. at all. and yet i want to make this because it looks so good!

  • Yum! I have never cooked brussell sprouts this way and can’t wait to try it. It looks delicious.

  • I have never actually had brussell sprouts! These look good, though. Like I could mix them in with stir fry.
