In your head, you’re thinking, “why even care about reheating Brussels sprouts?” They are soggy, green, and mushy blobs. Your parents tried to feed them to you, but could never make you like them. So, why learn how to reheat Brussel sprouts now? Because we’re going to tell you a tasty recipe to cook roasted Brussels sprouts to cook, store, and reheat.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe
Use a knife to trim tough stem at the end of the Brussels sprouts. Remove damaged or yellow leaves, cutting them lengthwise from tip to end. You can use either fresh or frozen Brussels sprouts. Follow these directions to prepare roasted, not mushy, Brussels sprouts:
1. Put the oven rack in the oven’s third position.
2. Put the sprouts on a baking sheet, drizzle olive oil, and sprinkle salt and black pepper. Mix them until completely coated.
3. Spread the sprouts in a single layer and flip all to be sliced side down.
4. Bake the sprouts at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes.
5. Remove and eat
Don’t feel like eating all of them now? Store them!
To store, put them in an airtight container. Put the container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Don’t freeze them because they can get soggy. If you have several sprouts leftover, freezing them is the only choice you have to ensure they remain edible later.
Put the fully roasted sprouts in an airtight freezer-safe container. You can store the sprouts in the freezer for up to 2 months. When it is time to reheat the frozen Brussels sprouts, take them and put them on the counter to thaw overnight.
After a while – not more than 4 days if in the fridge and not more than 2 months if in the freezer– when your craving for roasted Brussels sprouts is at its peak, take them out of the fridge to reheat them.
Tips on How to Reheat Brussel Sprouts
Here’s how to reheat Brussels sprouts:
1. Lightly oil a baking sheet and then put the Brussels sprouts on top of it.
2. Preheat the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 5 minutes or until heated completely.
3. Remove, serve, and enjoy.
If you want, you can reheat the Brussels sprouts in the microwave. Put them on a microwave-safe plate and reheat for around 30 seconds or more if needed. The only downside of reheating them in the microwave is that they will become soggy. If you are short on time, you can reheat them in the microwave. Otherwise, we suggest using the oven to reheat Brussels sprouts.
When you’re cooking or reheating Brussels sprouts, you should have a pack of all-purpose sheet pans, a fish turning spatula to flip them, a non-slip cutting board to cut and slice them easily, and a grater for grating cheese or another garnishing over them.
Once you have everything, you need to cook Brussels sprouts, roast them in the oven, and store them for later to reheat and eat them later. We hope that you now know how to reheat Brussels sprouts.
