Cranberry Orange Roasted Brussels Sprouts-a great side dish to any holiday meal.
Most people have strong opinions about brussels sprouts. They either love them or hate them. I am a lover. Brussels sprouts are one of my favorite vegetables. I love them roasted, in salads, and in pasta. I am currently loving Cranberry Orange Roasted Brussels Sprouts. They are so good and so easy to prepare, which makes them the perfect recipe for your Thanksgiving menu.
If brussels sprouts were already on your Thanksgiving menu, good for you! You may want to switch things up a bit by making Cranberry Orange Roasted Brussels Sprouts. I promise they will be a hit! And if brussels sprouts weren’t on your menu, there is still time to add them! This recipe is easy peasy and you only need a few ingredients!
I cut the stems off of the sprouts and cut them in half. I toss them in a simple orange dressing made with fresh orange juice, orange zest, olive oil, and a little honey. Add some salt and pepper and roast away! I love when the brussels sprouts get a little burnt. The crispy pieces are my favorite:)
When the sprouts come out of the oven I add dried cranberries to the mix! They add a nice pop of color and a kick of sweetness! Brussels sprouts have never looked so good…or tasted so good! I love the refreshing orange flavor with the sweet cranberries.
If you are looking for one last side dish to make for your Thanksgiving feast, make Cranberry Orange Roasted Brussels Sprouts. I think the brussels sprouts haters will even try them…and I bet they will turn into lovers. And if your menu is set and you don’t have room for one more recipe, save this recipe for Christmas. These sprouts are festive and would be a great addition to any holiday meal!
Cranberry Orange Roasted Brussels Sprouts
- 1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts rinsed
- Juice of 1 large orange
- 2 teaspoons orange zest
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons honey or agave agave for vegan recipe
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Cut off the brown ends of the brussels sprouts and remove any discolored leaves. Cut the sprouts in half if they are large sprouts. If you have small sprouts you can leave them whole.

Pour them on a large baking pan and season with salt and black pepper. Roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Shake the pan from time to time to brown the sprouts evenly.
- Put the brussels sprouts in a large bowl and add the dried cranberries. Stir and serve immediately.

I’ve eaten brussels sprouts almost every day for the past month. I am a huge lover of them, and they’re so good this time of year. Pinned this – so pretty! Cran + orange have gotta be great too in here!
I love these teensy tiny little cabbages! Yours are bea-yoo-tiful! Perfect for the upcoming Holiday. Plus, cranberries and orange? Yea, that’s a good idea!
So one of my favorite local restaurants makes the most AMAZING brussels with orange. They also add soy sauce and it is a killer combination! You must try! These are so pretty!
I love the cran-orange combo! It’s so fabulous, and definitely sounds awesome with veggies!
I made a recipe just like this last week and I just love it! I sauteed mine, I’ll have to try roasting them next time. Nice recipe!
I am loving the cranberry and orange combination. It looks absolutely incredible! I am going to give them a try soon.
Yep, love them, roasted especially. Great side dish, Maria.
Gorgeous colors, Maria! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
I simply adore that you combined two popular Thanksgiving flavors/ingredients in one dish! This looks perfect!
love this! and esp love the addition of the orange zest! Happy Thanksgiving!
I need a good brussels sprout recipe – love that you have two Thanksgiving classics in this one! Pinned for future use!
Roasted brussels sprouts are the best and this flavour combo sounds great!
Do you think you could roast fresh cranberries with them? (cut in half so they don’t burst?) I wonder how roasted carrots and parsnips would taste mixed in also…
Yes, that sounds good to me!
Love how the cranberries pop in the photos!
Can you just use Craisins as the dried cranberries or do you have any other recommendations?
Yes, Craisins are perfect!
Mmmmm. Gotta love those brussels sprouts!
I have been eating brussels daily, but these look better than the ones I have been making! They are so pretty!
I never thought about combining brussels sprouts with sweet flavors like cranberries and orange but it definitely makes sense! Thanks for sharing.
I’m a recent brussels convert (addict?) and am certain I can win my family over with this recipe at Thanksgiving! Can’t wait to try it!!
I had a different brussels sprouts recipe planned for our Thanksgiving dinner, but I might just switch to this one now!
Can you make in advance and reheat in micro, then add the craisins.
Great idea to combine everyone’s favorite side with their favorite Thanksgiving condiment! It’s new and different and sounds divine! Happy Thanksgiving 🙂
Made this last night….so simple and so DELICIOUS!
This is such a beautiful spin on brussels sprouts for the holidays!
Love the orange cranberry combination. I’m the same way when it comes to decorating.
I made my Bruxelles.spr with “. Cipolline”. The sweet little onions, first given them a short boil than sautéed with butter and thyme a squize of lemon and than roast them in a broiler to give them color and crispness… Delizioso http://t.m.bn.com/r/?id=h4608045d,1b99ded3,1b99e690&sourceId=J000001828&cm_em=giancanapoli%40hotmail.com&cm_mmc=Member-_-Coupon-_-131114_MM_COU_DC_GENERIC_M-_-NA healthy…… Buon appetito
First time. Love cooking….
My daughter made this recipe, but substituted balsamic glaze in place of Orange
These are absolutely beautiful – I love the orange juice in this!
Can I pan sauté these the same way instead of using my oven? Too many temp variations to deal with on Christmas Day…
seriously, 400 degrees for 40 minutes????? did anybody else actually make these? after 15 minutes they were almost charcoal. glad i opened the oven to “shake the pan”!
This recipe sounds delicious, but I’m not a big fan of honey. Do you think maple syrup would work as a substitute? Thanks in advance!
Do you think I could roast these on the stove in a pan? I only have one oven and my turkey-less loaves will be in there 🙂
We are trying this today for our Christmas Eve feast and I am super excited to try this recipe! I’ll tell y’all how it worked!!!
It looks delicious, I will try this recipe tomorrow
This recipe looks absolutely amazing! When researching some healthier options for this Thanksgiving we came across your recipe and would like to feature it in our blog, with your permission of course. We would share the recipe by linking it directly to your site , while utilizing your photos if you are okay with that.
We are looking forward to working with you!

These were so good. Served them at Thanksgiving and they were a hit with everyone.
So glad you loved the recipe.
Try adding a bit of Orange marmalade to them if you really like oranges (I do) comes out really nice.
