Brussels Sprouts get a bad rap. These Balsamic Campfire Brussels Sprouts are steps above the steamed vegetables we used to have to force ourselves to eat at our childhood family dinners and easy to make for a quick side dish to campfire meals

Like many, brussels sprouts were never a favourite vegetable growing up but that was long before I started roasting my own. Campfire Brussels Sprouts are my favourite way to get my families veggies and camping isn’t a reason to leave these behind.

A great side dish to serve with a grilled steak, these campfire brussels sprouts have a crispy texture elevated to a garlicky tart and salty grilled flavour. Top with some shredded parmesan for a delicious side to any campfire meal.

Campfire Brussels Sprouts can be prepared ahead to quickly throw together a tasty and healthy camping meal or can be oven roasted at home. I make these at home often simply by adjusting the cooking time and heat in the oven.

*Don’t forget, how to build a cooking fire is key to cook times however you should be prepared to adjust times based on the look and texture of the food you are cooking.

Balsamic Roasted Campfire Brussels Sprouts

A great side dish to serve with a grilled steak, these campfire brussels sprouts are crispy elevated to a garlicky tart and salty grilled flavour.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes


  • 1 lb brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • Kosher Salt and Black Pepper to taste
  • Shredded Parmesan for garnish


Preheat the campfire for cooking. See the article How to Build a Cooking Fire.

In a foil pan place brussels sprouts, pour oil and balsamic over the top. Sprinkle with minced garlic, salt and pepper. Cover with foil and place on the grate over the campfire.

Cook for approximately 15 minutes or until cooked though, shaking occasionally to coat and avoid burning. Remove foil and check if cooked through by piercing with a metal fork.

Serve hot with your favourite cut of grilled meat.


Alternatively, you can oven roast these at 425 degrees F. for approximately 35 minutes, or until cooked through. Sprouts should be easy to insert a fork into but not mushy. I prefer them slightly crispy.
