I used to hate Brussels sprouts. Yup, I actually despised them. Almost as much as I hated beets, but that’s another post. Then one day, as I traveled down my road of culinary adventure, I roasted them. Instantly I fell in love! I couldn’t get enough. So simple, yet so delicious. I started creating recipes with them, try my Roasted Veggies and Pasta or my Fall Quinoa Stuffing, two of my favorites! After some experimentation with Brussels sprouts as an ingredient, I decided that it was time for these beauties to take center stage. So Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts were born! They are so easy to make, really good for you, and absolutely amazing…even my kids will eat them. They have a touch of sweet and a touch of salty but err more on the salty side since I am a little bit weird about my savory food being too sweet. The small amount of maple syrup is just enough to bring out their caramelized flavor as they roast…these are a perfect side dish for any meal and a great addition to your dinner party. Enjoy!
