Roasted Brussels Sprouts Bowls with sausage and tons of flavor are going to save you from ever having a sad desk lunch again. Or sad dinner. We gotchu.
You know what’s kind of funny?
I work from home, yet I still love to meal prep on Sunday’s.
If I don’t, then during the week I find that I get HUNGRY and don’t want to spent time making food because I want food NOW and I end up reaching for some kind of protein bar or something and end up not eating vegetables.
So lunch bowls for meal prep are basically my saving grace during HANGRY Taylor week days. Whether it’s a chicken burrito bowl for meal prep, low carb pizza meal prep bowls, creamy basil pesto meal prep bowls or THESE ones I am here for them. But, currently loving these ones because they are kind of savory and sweet and super filling. Even Mr. FFF requests them and that is saying a lot for him to like vegetables!

How to Prepare Brussels Sprouts
First things first, you need to cut the end off each sprout – this is known as trimming
Then, you need to remove and of the dirty outside leaves that fall off when your trim each sprout.
I find that most Brussels sprouts recipes cook best when they are halved. So, once the sprouts are trimmed and the yucky leaves are gone, just use a sharp knife to slice them in half.
How to Roast Brussels Sprouts
Like I mentioned in balsamic roasted Brussels, making roasted Brussels sprouts is super easy and is key to making these sausage and brussels sprouts meal prep bowls delicious!
First, heat your oven to 400°F.
First you have to prep your Brussels sprouts like outlined above and place them in a bowl.
Toss the Brussels sprouts with the olive oil and spread onto a baking sheet in an even layer
Bake in the heated oven for 20-25 minutes, stirring half way through until golden brown and the Brussels sprouts are fork tender.
BOOM! You have roasted Brussels sprouts ready and your chicken meal prep bowls are almost ready for you to eat!
How Long do Meal Prep Bowls Last?
Typically, meal prep bowls last 3-5 days in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
I don’t recommend keeping these sausage and brussels sprouts meal prep bowls longer than 3 to 4 days because the apples might get a little brown. You could also not chop the apples in advance and just add them into your bowl the morning before you go to work if you want to make these last longer!
No more boring, sad desk lunches to see here folks.
Just simple, good for you veggie-packed fuel that, like, actually tastes GOOD.
