- Peel off at least two layers of leaves.
- Give the Brussels sprouts one final rinse under cold water.
- Cut the Brussels sprouts in half and place them in the cast iron skillet.
- Continue this process until all the Brussels sprouts are in the cast iron skillet.
- Drizzle the top of the Brussels sprouts with the olive oil and the honey.
- Sprinkle the spices over the top of the Brussels sprouts making sure to distribute them evenly.
- Do not stir the Brussels sprouts to mix the ingredients at this point!
- Place the cast iron skillet with the Brussels sprouts in the oven on the bottom rack*.
- Turn the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Once the oven is preheated, set the timer for 10 minutes.
- Once 10 minutes has passed, open the oven, remove the cast iron skillet and give the Brussels sprouts a quick stir.
- Return the cast iron skillet to the oven and set the timer for an additional 10 minutes.

*It is always best to place a cast iron pan in the oven before preheating it unless the cast iron pan is already hot. Cool cast iron cookware placed in a hot oven can crack!
