Maple-Roasted Brussel Sprouts

March 8 2020

Some people love them, and some people just haven't discovered this recipe yet.  Brussel sprouts get a bad rap, but usually it's because of the way they were prepared back in the day (boiled or steamed until grey and mushy, giving a less-than-pleasant odor to the entire house).  But, roasting them and giving them a chance to caramelize transforms them into tiny little gems of deliciousness!

This recipe brings  together Brussel sprouts, maple syrup and bacon in a tasty side dish worthy of converting any die-hard objectors!  Give it a try...I promise everyone will be delighted with this yummy recipe!


Brussel Sprouts

Serves 4

Prep Time:  10 minutes

Active Time:  45 minutes

2 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

6 tbsp pure maple syrup

8 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Place Brussels sprouts in a single layer 0n a sheet pan.  Spread onto two sheets if they are too crowded (they won't caramelize if they are too crowded;  instead, they will steam). Drizzle with olive oil and maple syrup; toss to coat. Sprinkle with bacon; season with salt and black pepper.

Roast in the preheated oven until bacon is crispy and Brussels sprouts are caramelized, 45 minutes, stirring halfway through.
