I wouldn't roast the Brussels sprouts in advance, because I find that they develop an unpleasant cabbage-y smell and taste, as soon as within a few hours of being cooked.

That said, there's no reason not to prepare all of the rest of it, and then roast the Brussels sprouts alone on a baking sheet to fold into the dish right before popping it into the oven to bake. You can also prep the Brussels sprouts up to a few days in advance. I just answered another question on this very topic; see this for more details:

Let us know what you do, and how it turns out! ;o)
