Fuss Free Cooking - Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Chunky Ham

Mister loves Brussels sprouts, so whenever he goes to grocery shopping with me and spots these round veggies, I have to put some in my basket, otherwise he won't stop bugging me.

So here's one basic Brussels sprouts recipe with side benefits of fuss free and easy cleaning.

Oven roasted Brussels sprouts with chunky ham -


  • 600 grams Brussels sprouts
  • 185 grams ham
  • Some salt
  • Some freshly ground black pepper
  • Some olive oil
  • Some Parmigiano-Reggiano (optional)


Trim the Brussels sprouts by cutting off the brown ends. Line the baking sheet with aluminum foil. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit/218 degrees Celsius. 

Transfer Brussels sprouts to the baking dish and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle some olive oil throughout. 

Into the oven and bake for about 18 to 20 minutes, or till the outer layer turns slightly browned.

Carefully take out the baking sheet. Toss the Brussels sprouts then add cubed ham throughout. Transfer the baking sheet back to the oven and continue to bake till the ham turns slightly browned on the edges. Check once a while and make sure not to burn the Brussels sprouts.

Once ready, remove from heat. Dust some grated Parmigiano-Reggiano right before serving if desired. 

If using grated cheese, use less salt in the beginning since both ham and cheese carry certain level of saltiness. You can always adjust the flavors by adding more salt later, but it'll be hard to revert to a lighter taste.

One happy Mister at home.
