These spicy Brussels sprouts are roasted until ultra crispy, then tossed with a spicy sweet balsamic sauce. So good, they taste like restaurant style!


  • 1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce, plus more to drizzle: Frank’s Hot Sauce, Sriracha, or other


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Slice off any hard ends of the Brussels sprouts, as needed. Slice them in half lengthwise and place them in a large bowl.
  3. Mix the sprouts with the olive oil, kosher salt, and lots of fresh ground black pepper.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper*, then pour the spouts onto the sheet. Turn them all cut side down.
  5. Roast for 25 minutes until very browned and tender (don’t stir!).
  6. While the sprouts are roasting, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, honey or maple syrup, and 1 teaspoon hot sauce. When the sprouts are done, pour over the mixture and toss to combine. Then generously drizzle with more hot sauce to taste. Serve immediately.
