Recipe Tips & Notes
- Prefer oven roasted brussels sprouts? Alternatively, roast them in the oven on a sheet pan or baking sheet at 400 degrees F for 20-25 minutes, then toss with your warmed honey-sriracha sauce before serving.
- Cooking times can vary based on the size of your brussels sprouts. Smaller sprouts can be cooked whole. The best way to test them for doneness is to poke them with a fork.
Storage & Leftovers
Honey sriracha brussels sprouts will last up to 5 days in the refrigerator in a sealed container. You can warm them on the stove top in a pan, or in the microwave, or air fryer to enjoy again.
I do not recommend freezing this dish, as it can affect the overall texture.
