👩🍳 Expert tips
Make sure to read and follow these expert tips to ensure complete success with this honey sriracha brussels sprouts recipe:
Parchment - be sure to line your baking sheet with parchment paper, it helps with clean up. The glaze can get baked on pretty hard if you don't.
Honey - honey burns quite easily, it's high in sugar content so we'd recommend keeping a close eye on the brussels sprouts. Every oven is different, yours may have a hot spot.
Caramelization - you should have a nice level of caramelization after 20-25 minutes. but if you don't and the sprouts are nice and tender simply broil (grill) for a minute or use a mini blow torch to help you out if you want a bit more.
Cut side down - No need to flip these as you'll get better caramelization if you don't. Simply does it.
🍽 What to serve them with

💭 Recipe FAQs
The most important way is to ensure you get them in season and after the first frost. Otherwise make sure you use one of our recipes to add flavorings that complement but mask the bitterness.
To get a good caramelization when roasting brussels sprouts you need to have the oven at a hot temperature. But to really ensure you get a good color, the key is to use some form of sugar, such as honey, maple syrup or just regular sugar.
If reheating these, just place on a lined baking sheet in an oven preheated to 200oC/400oF for 5-10 minutes until nice and hot again. If you wish to use a microwave just reheat at full power for 2-3 minutes but note that they won't be as crispy.
