14 of the Best Brussels Sprout Recipes (2024)

Think you don't like Brussels sprouts? We promise that these tempting, easy-to-make Brussel sprout recipes will change your mind. Whether you prefer roasted with pieces of pancetta, sautéed in sesame oil with ginger and soy sauce, tossed into pasta with Pecorino, or shaved and sprinkled over pizza, there's a Brussels sprouts recipe here for every flavor palette.

Remember: When shopping, look for Brussels sprouts that feel firm. Skip over sprouts that have leaves with holes or appear wrinkly or shriveled. If you spot a few yellowish or dry-looking outer leaves, that's fine, but make sure the leaves look like they're tightly layered.

The best tool for prepping your Brussels sprouts is a paring knife—the small blade and lightweight handle give you complete control and make removing the stem a breeze. Store Brussels sprouts in the crisper drawer of your fridge in an airtight bag and (ideally) consume them within three days of purchasing them for optimal flavor.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts With Pancetta and Lemon

14 of the Best Brussels Sprout Recipes (1)

A crispy Brussels sprouts dish is delicious, but a crispy Brussels sprouts with pancetta? That's heaven. The bacon-like cubes of ham release mouthwatering, umami-flavored fat onto the pan, which gets soaked up by the sprouts as they roast. Usually, you'd have to fry Brussels sprouts to get them adequately caramelized, but the pancetta boosts crispiness (and plenty of deliciously rich and salty flavor).
