Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts. Poor things…they have such a bad rap.

I really like them. And both boys willingly eat them. I had to convince them that they tasted like broccoli to get them to try them…but once they did, they both finished off their portion. The hint of maple sweetness *might* have helped them eat them all up.

I could eat these sweet maple flavored, oven roasted little green gems every night of the week!

Prices to look for: $1.99/lb or less for fresh, $.88-$1 per 12-16 oz bag for frozen

Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Yield – 6 servings

Preparation Time – 15 minutes

Cooking Time – 30 to 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 12 oz. bags of frozen Brussels sprouts
  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup (I get it free from Amazon, using credit earned Swagbucks)
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • Few dashes of salt and pepper

Directions

  • Cook the frozen Brussels sprouts first as directed on the package, then drain the water and pat them dry. (If using fresh Brussels sprouts, wash and pat dry the Brussels sprouts. Pick off any yellow leaves. Steam in a steamer for about 4-5 minutes. Pat dry and proceed to next step.)

  • In a medium size bowl, whisk the maple syrup and olive oil. Toss with the dried Brussels sprouts. Season with a little salt and pepper.

  • Place into a small roasting pan or shallow baking dish and roast at 400 for 30-35 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.

We had these the other night with the Pork Roast with Apples and Pears. They’d be great with any fall dinner!

(And the leftovers made for a lovely snack the next day!)

    We love brussel sprouts at our house, too! I have a little bag of fresh ones in my fridge right now. When I was pregnant, I craved them all the time! We halve them and saute in a little olive oil with bacon and a splash of red wine vinegar.

    I love them any way possible…..but my favorite is with a splash of apple cider vinegar and salt(which I like on brocolli too!)

    Your recipe is on my “to do” list for next week!
