Panko Crusted Brussels Sprouts With Sweet And Spicy Cranberry Sauce

A great way to use whole Brussels sprouts, and a great addition to a festive table spread.


  • No panko breadcrumbs? Blitz any type of bread (even gluten free) in a food processor.
  • No rosemary? Use any other herb you like.
  • No golden syrup? Swap for honey or maple syrup. 
  • No BBQ sauce? Use any similar tomato-based sauce or hot sauce instead.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 40 minutes

Total time: 50 minutes

Servings: 2


400 g Brussels sprouts

50 g Plain flour

2 Eggs / Plant based milk

50 g Panko breadcrumbs

1 tbsp Rosemary (chopped )

1 tsp Paprika

Salt & pepper

1 tbsp Vegetable oil

For the sauce:

2 tbsp Cranberry sauce

1 tbsp Golden syrup

2 tbsp Light soy sauce

1 tbsp bbq sauce

1 tsp Worcestershire sauce


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C/160 fan/gas mark 4. Line a large baking tray with reusable silicone mat or baking paper.
  2. Prepare 3 bowls. The first one with flour, the second one with beaten eggs (or 100ml plant-based milk), and the third one with a mixture of panko breadcrumbs, rosemary, paprika, and a pinch of both salt and pepper.
  3. Place the whole Brussels sprouts into the bowl with the flour. Toss well to coat.
  4. Then dip the Brussels sprouts into the eggs (or plant-based milk) and finally into the breadcrumbs mixture.
  5. Spread the Brussels sprouts across the lined baking tray, and drizzle with a little vegetable oil. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes, until golden. 
  6. While they're cooking, combine the cranberry sauce, golden syrup, bbq sauce, Worcestershire sauce and light soy sauce in a small bowl. 
  7. Pour the sauce over the Brussels sprouts and gently toss to coat. Return to the oven and bake for 10 minutes.

Caramelised Brussels Sprouts with Miso Cream and Hazelnuts

Martyn Odell (aka Lagom Chef) whips up a delicious Brussels Sprout recipe after visiting Oddbox's growers at P C Thorolds. Sprouts love to be sauteed, there is no need to boil them first, if they are small chuck them straight in a pan, but if they are a little bigger chop them up. This recipe is perfect to load up a bit of toast with your spread, Brussels, nuts and enjoy!
