Why are frozen Brussel sprouts mushy?
Most frozen brussels sprouts come in their whole form. It’s ok to roast them whole with no need to cut them. Do not overcrowd the baking sheet as that will cause them to steam and become mushy when roasting brussels sprouts from frozen. Make sure they are in a single layer on the baking sheet.
Are Frozen Brussel sprouts as good as fresh?

Why are my frozen Brussel sprouts brown inside?
If they are brown or black in color, it is a sign of mold and you should discard them right away. Look at the sprouts and see if you can see or feel some gray powder on them. If yes, then it indicates downy mildew caused due to fungus. You should immediately discard them.
Can you freeze brussel sprouts without blanching them first?
You cannot just buy Brussels Sprouts and pop them in the freezer without blanching them. Freezing vegetables without blanching them first lead to faded or dull-colored veggies, as well as not-so-pleasant flavors or textures.
Do you have to blanch brussel sprouts?
Tame the texture. Like all cabbages, Brussels are unavoidably fibrous and dense. You must overcome this by either cooking them in salty water until fork tender (blanching), or by roasting at a high (over 425F) temperature for upwards of 20 minutes. To guarantee great texture, do both!
How do you thaw frozen brussel sprouts?
Frozen Brussel sprouts can be defrosted in the refrigerator very easily. All you need to do is grab the best defrosting tray and transfer all the frozen pieces of the vegetable on the tray. Put the veggie in the fridge 30 minutes before you want to cook it. After this period, your veggie would be defrosted completely.
