Brown Butter Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time40 mins
Total Time50 mins


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 lb brussels sprouts halved
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  • Add butter to a small saucepan over medium-low heat. It's best to use a light colored pan so you can see the butter turning color.
  • Swirl the pan so the butter can move around and stirring every once in awhile.
  • The butter will foam and the color will progress from a lemon-y color to a nutty brown. Once you see brown flecks, remove from heat immediately. It goes from brown to burnt pretty quickly.
  • This whole process usually takes around 10 minutes.
  • Toss brussels sprouts in brown butter and then place on prepared baking sheet.
  • Roast brussels sprouts in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  • Serve and enjoy!
