You won’t believe how easy this is to make! Start by preheating your oven to 425F.
Slice the ends off the Brussels sprouts, then slice them in half.
Add them to a large mixing bowl.

Bake for 15-18 minutes, on the center rack in your oven, or until caramelized.

Tips on How to Make Easy Keto Roasted Balsamic Brussels Sprouts
There are several different ways you can prepare Brussels sprouts for a Keto diet. Pan frying in bacon grease might be the most popular way and it gives them lots of flavor! In fact, you can try these Stir Fried Brussels Sprouts with Bacon to get that that wonderful flavor!
I prefer the sweetness that comes out when you roast them in the oven. They get nice and caramelized, especially when you add some balsamic vinegar. You can also shred them into ribbons and pay fry them that way.
I use diced prosciutto in this recipe to give the Brussels sprouts more flavor. If you don’t have prosciutto, you can use diced pancetta instead.
If you want to omit the slivered almonds, you certainly can or you can substitute with chopped walnuts, pecans and pine nuts (pignoli). Just be sure to toast them in a dry pan first, because it really brings out the flavor more!
As a finishing touch and to make this side dish even more special, you can crumble some goat cheese over the top, right before serving. It will add an extra creaminess with a slight tang.
