  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts stems removed and halved
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt add more to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper add more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon finely minced garlic
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • Parmesan cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • Trim the stems off the Brussels sprouts and cut them in half, making sure they’re all similar in size for even cooking.
  • Toss the Brussels sprouts with olive oil, salt, smoked paprika, and black pepper.
  • Arrange them cut side down on a baking sheet. (Tip: Preheat the pan before adding the Brussels sprouts for extra crispiness.)
  • Roast in the oven for 15 minutes.
  • While they roast, heat a pan over medium heat. Add the butter, garlic, honey, red pepper flakes, and balsamic vinegar. Stir together and let it simmer for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Quickly remove the Brussels sprouts from the oven and pour the sauce over them, tossing to coat. Return to the oven for 3 more minutes. Alternatively, you can fully cook them in the oven and then toss them in the sauce afterward for an even stronger flavor.
  • Once out of the oven, sprinkle lots of freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top and enjoy!
