How to Make Brown Butter Brussels Sprouts

  1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  3. Roast for 10 minutes, or until the edges start to brown.
  4. While the sprouts roast, make the brown butter. Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk occasionally until it foams and turns golden brown (don’t let it burn!).
  5. Remove the sprouts from the oven and drizzle generously with the brown butter. Serve immediately.
