  • Cook's Note:
  • I adjust roasting times for desired doneness. I prefer a darker roast and will sometimes roast for 30 minutes. Change to suit. Directions for this recipe are for FROZEN Brussels sprouts (i.e. still iced when placed in the oven). Fresh veggies require less roasting time.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I rarely assign 5 stars, because it means there is zero room for improvement. I have given this recipe one of my coveted 5-star ratings, as I truly don't see any way to make it better. Starting with the frozen Brussels sprouts. I urge you not to think you will improve this recipe by using fresh. Unless you are pulling them from your own garden, Brussels sprouts are never truly fresh, and they rapidly deteriorate once harvested. If you MUST use fresh, be sure to at least use the ones that come still attached to the stalk. The reason they sell them that way is because of the rapid deterioration these vegetable experience once harvested. This is also why so many people think they don't like Brussels sprouts! Just be sure you thaw them first. Use your microwave defroster to speed this process. The original recipe here has conflicting instructions on that point (see the footnote). I assure you that you want them to be thawed. The misture of apples and onions into this recipe is perfect, and the lemon adds a nice tang. As the orignal recipe notes in the footnotes, you can adjust roasting time for desired doneness. I find that 40 mintues produces a better result, turning the vegetables every 10-15 minutes for even browning. You want them slightly darkened and carmelized. I am experimenting with using the convection feature of our oven to see if I can acheive this effect quicker. Best to use non-stick foil to line your roasting pan to prevent sticking.

I prepared this recipe with 1 cup pecans. The apples did not do much for me. I did like the pecans with the crunch. I will not be making this again.

Let me preface by saying I combined this and the Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Pecan recipe because I like apples and pecans :). I started the process on the stove with my cast iron skillet to ensure a caramelized brussels sprout and then moved to my oven for 15-20 minutes. Absolutely delicious, no bitter taste either and the apples added a wonderful flavor.

Loved this!! Unfortunately we only had one onion on hand, and we used fresh brussel sprouts, and one granny smith apple and one gala apple. We placed everything in cast iron bowls and put them on the grill instead of in the oven, it was awesome!! Loved the little bit of char and carmelization.

Loved these! However-I had to use what I had on hand....Used fresh Brussels sprouts (about 16 oz), 1 apple, 1 onion and no lemon. Also, I mixed all ingredients and placed the mixture in aluminum foil and baked for about 50 minutes. Delicious!

Very tasty and easy to prepare! I used fresh brussels sprouts and cut them in half... came out great. I am glad to have a brussels sprouts recipe that doesn't include bacon or butter.

Amazing. I made with fresh brussel sprouts. The secret to making them good is to cut out the choke. YUM!

I have made this recipe but use parchment paper (no cleanup) and I put the brussels and apples in a bag and drizzle olive oil into bag along with sea salt to cover them all before putting them in my table top convection oven for 20 mins at 400-425 degrees. So easy!
