This idea was inspired by someone who commented on a recent Brussels sprout recipe I shared on Facebook and I thought, brilliant! They did not disappoint and they are super quick and easy to make. Great as a side for chicken, steaks or pork chops.

  1. Simple, yet delicious. I love Brussels Sprouts and hot sauce, so this was a match made in heaven.

  2. This recipe is amazing! I’m not a huge fan of blue cheese but I love love love this! <3

  3. Omg. I love these! I’m eating them right now as I type this comment. I will always eat Brussels sprouts like this from now on. 

  4. Could this recipe work in the air fryer? What changes should I make? Should I still roast the brussel sprouts first? This sounds delicious and I can’t wait to make it!

  5. Super yummy! So glad I made this tonight!

  6. I made this before and loved it but I decided to change things up last night and my husband said it hit a home run! I tossed the brussels sprouts in some liquid smoke, soy sauce, and paprika before putting them in the saute pan. I also covered them as they cooked which allowed them to absorb a smoky flavor that went well with the Frank’s and blue cheese. Being vegetarian, we don’t get that flavor very often and I miss it!!

  7. A must try. ALWAYS looking for creative ways to use Brussels sprouts. Thank you!

  8. Can’t wait to try these tonight! We don’t have a pan that can go in the oven…do you think I could do the stove top then place them in a glass dish for the oven portion??

  9. Absolutely FANTASTIC! Thank you, Gina!!!

  10. I made this tonight, and it was really, really great! It seems as if it might not be, but the flavors, especially the charred brussels sprouts, go together really well. If you’re on the fence and like buffalo stuff, try it! (We are vegetarians, so it’s nice to have something that tastes like something from our “past life.” ha ha.)

  11.  When you first posted this recipe, it sounded really unappealing to me. But my friends ordered buffalo sprouts in a bar and they were super good. So I follow this recipe for the Super Bowl last night and it was AMAZING! Great way of getting some greens but still indulging in the Super Bowl flavors.

  12. Gina,
    Can I just say that I LOVE to cook and I have every cookbook.. Your cookbooks are, by far, my favorite and my “go to” cookbooks for fast, easy, healthy and taste! You are doing such a great job! I admire you girl! You are very talented! I look forward to every new recipe you post. Xo Dana

  13. I’m obsessed with these, always make them! I always use fresh sprouts but they didn’t have any last time I went shopping so I bought frozen. I thawed then overnight. Do you think I should skip the pan fry part and just roast? Or follow the recipe as is? 

  14. These were SO good!! I’m not a blue cheese fan so we used goat cheese and we felt like we were having a treat!! Delicious! 

  15. I thought this was good but not great. I rarely dislike a skinnytaste recipe but this was not our favorite. All I really tasted was hot sauce. 

  16. If you’re not a big fan of blue cheese … what should you substitute?

    Love your site and all your recipes, by the way! 

  17. although we both love “spicy” food, we found Franks hot sauce was way too hot!  next time will try Framks buffalo sauce instead 

  18. Scrumptious!! My husband and I loved every bite! 

  19. These are amazing! I’ve made them twice now since finding this recipe last week. Tonight I decided to make this my main dish -cooking for one, so while the sprouts were in the oven, I put some frozen chicken breast strips in the frying pan. I added them to the dish before drizzling with hot sauce and voila!  I have a main dish. Soooo good! Thanks for all the amazing recipes Gina.

  20. I made this Sunday night, with Texas Pete instead of Frank’s (they’re both pretty similar in taste; I just buy Texas Pete out of habit)… and they were amazing. I just plopped them in a bowl, and it was my dinner. I’ll be doing this again. Soon.

  21. You never steer me wrong, Gina! Had these tonight with your mustard herb crusted chicken. My husband is not into brussels sprouts but I like to mix it up with different veggies occasionally. So when they’re on the menu, we’ve gotta do something good with them. I previously made him sprouts with bacon and cheese and he loved it. He said this topped that. Topped bacon and cheese!!! That says a lot. We both loved this. He said it’s the only way he’ll eat brussels sprouts from now on. I just wish they didn’t have so much sodium, but that’s Frank’s red hot for you. I guess it’s ok for an occasional dish 🙂

  22. I would have never thought Brussels would be good done buffalo but this recipe was really good! For those of you that don’t like blue cheese Gina had a nice recipe for ranch dressing that would be a great substitute drizzled on.

  23. These were so good! My husband said that the Frank’s Hot Sauce made it “curiously pleasing”! (He said he would never think of putting that together with blue cheese and was pleasantly surprised.) This is a keeper!

  24. saw this recipe today while searching another recipe. It looked so good I had to try it! It was even better then I thought! Delicious, in fact. No leftovers at all and scraped the bottom of the pan. An immediate favorite!

  25. We are not  a fan of blue cheese. Substitute?
    lOVE your recipes! Been using them for years. I tell  everyone to check out your website!
    Thank -you!

  26. The recipe is so simple and easy to make. These buffalo brussels sprouts with crumbled blue cheese looks extremely tasty. Can’t wait. I am going to try this recipe in morning for my spouse.

  27. Hi, could someone tell me the ingredients of the sauce to give me an idea of a substitute that I can use. We don’t have Franks Hot Sauce in Australia. Thank you.

  28. This is on the menu for tonite!

  29. I love Frank’s Hot Sauce but equally love the Frank’s Buffalo Sauce. Do you think using that instead of the original Frank’s would make a big difference? I do think the Buffalo sauce is appreciably spicier, but I absolutely can’t get enough of it.

  30. THis is on the menu tonight. I’m also wondering if you use Gochujang.. Korean chili sauce. It’s my new fav.

  31. YUM! This looks like an easy doable meal that’s a perfect side <3

  32. GIVE ME ALL THE BRUSSELS!

  33. Can you prepare these in advance?

  34. Winner, Winner! Brussel Sprouts with dinner. Happened to have all the ingredients on hand! OMG, Gina. I had to give myself extra points on this one. I couldn’t stop eating them.

  35. what can i substitute hot sauce with?

  36. This looks absolutely amazing! I love Franks Hot sauce and brussels sprouts.  Do you have an entree you recommend with this?
    Thanks!

  37. I just bought some brussels sprouts at the grocery store yesterday and didn’t have a plan for them. Now I do! Thanks!

  38. Can you use frozen sprouts? If so, what the best way to halve them? Thaw and halve or bake and halve?
