Roasted Brussel sprouts are incredible, but everyone can agree that the worst part of making them is the prep! Trimming, cleaning, and slicing can eat up a lot of precious meal prep time.
Thankfully, it’s totally possible to roast frozen brussel sprouts and have an incredible side ready and on the table in minutes. Oh, and they’re almost always cheaper than fresh!

FROZEN brussel sprouts Roasting SUPPLIES
You’re going to need:
- a baking sheet with rimmed sides. I have these from Amazon and use them almost daily.
- oil – olive, avocado, coconut, etc. If you prefer to use an oil spray, I make my own using a Misto.
- salt – optional. I use Maldon but feel free to leave off or use your favorite.
- parchment or foil – optional. It makes for quicker cleanup, but it is a disposable item. If you use foil, spray it with olive oil spray before adding the veggies. Want something that’s not single-use? Try a reusable silicone baking sheet.
FOUR TAKEAWAY TIPS FOR Cooking Frozen Brussel Sprouts
- Look for bags marked as “baby brussels”. Large brussel sprouts are going to take a long time to roast and likely won’t be tender.
- Fully preheat the oven. It is so tempting to start cooking while the oven is preheating, but doing so will give you soft veggies.
- Preheat the pan and oil. After the pan has preheated, add some of the oil to it and stick it back in the oven for 2 minutes. A hot pan and hot oil will give the veggies a jump start on the roasting process.
- Don’t crowd the pan! Give the brussels plenty of space to roast. Too much veg all smushed together will cause the water to steam instead of evaporating. Try using two or even three pans if you want to roast larger batches.
Pro Tips & Variations
- After 10 minutes of roasting, feel free to slice the brussel sprouts in half and then continue roasting for 10-15 minutes. I don’t find it necessary but some people prefer it that way.
- Add shredded cheese (Parmesan, asiago, and gruyere are favorites) in the last 3 minutes of roasting.
- Add whole cloves of garlic to the pan to roast with the sprouts.

Made these, but added bacon (of course). Love how easy and delicious they are!
Bacon is the candy bar of meats!
Ever since Iron Chef Geoffrey Zakarian said on The Kitchen that you don’t need to trim the bottom of the Brussels sprouts, I stopped except when they still have part of the stock on them. It’s really cut down on prep time.
I have found waaaaaay too many little crunchy bugs in those first few layers of leaves to not cut/trim my sprouts.
