Brussels sprouts seem to be a bit like pineapple on pizza, with hardly any middle ground between love and hate. Attempts to sway people to team pineapple may be futile, but I hope to sway a few people on the fence about the sprout with these honey mustard pan roasted brussels sprouts.

You’ll only need three ingredients, and you even get to use frozen brussels sprouts. You won’t find many easier methods to cook next level veggies than you’ll see below.

And in case honey mustard isn’t your thing, I’ve included nearly ten more ideas for seasoning brussels sprouts. We’re talking ’bout pepper bacon, cranberry walnut, and sticky sweet sprouts.

How to Go from Frozen to Pan Roasted Brussels Sprouts

These honey mustard brussels sprouts are super easy to make. You’ll only need three ingredients:

  • 12-ounce bag of frozen brussels sprouts
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 2 tablespoons of whole grain mustard (dijon mustard works as well)

That’s it. To get started, simply microwave the brussels sprouts according to the packaging (about 5-6 minutes).

Once the brussels sprouts have cooked, drain any excess liquid from the bag and transfer the sprouts to a cutting board. Slice them in half, being careful to not burn yourself.

Heat a large skillet over high heat with nonstick cooking spray. It’s important you let your pan get completely hot first. A great way to test this is to flick a little water from your fingertips into the pan. If the pan sizzles, it’s good to go.

Add the brussels sprouts to the hot pan. Do your best to place most of the sprouts cut side down in the pan. You can see in the image below that I did not follow my own advice.

Leave the brussels sprouts untouched for 2-3 minutes before flipping and cooking another 2-3 minutes untouched.

While the sprouts are in the pan, mix the honey and mustard in a small bowl. After the sprouts have been in the pan for 4-6 minutes, reduce the heat to low, add the honey mustard, and stir well until the honey mustard is fully incorporated.

What Other Flavors Go Well with Brussels Sprouts?

In my frozen to roasted vegetables recipe, I included honey sriracha and pepper bacon pan roasted brussels sprouts recipes, but I believe those are the only three on my blog. So, I figured I could give you a few ideas for seasoning brussels sprouts in case you wanted to go a different direction with yours.

  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Worcestershire Sauce – you could plug brussels sprouts into something like my Sticky Sweet Ground Beef and Broccoli
  • Bacon – Is there anything bacon doesn’t go well with?

  • Fruits like apples, cranberries, lemons, grapes, pears—really just about any fruit
  • Chopped Nuts – walnuts and cranberries go together like lamb and tuna fish
  • Ground Chipotle Peppers, Paprika, Chili Powder, etc.

Okay, that’s plenty of ideas. You’ll find a printable version of these pan roasted brussels sprouts below. If you try the honey mustard sprouts or any of the variations above, I would love to see them. Snap a pic and tag me on Instagram.
