So, you may think I’m really weird after saying this, but these brussel sprouts are de-licious!  I have thought about scooping myself up a serving for dessert the other night.  Yes, dessert…weird, I know but if you have not tried brussel sprouts, try them like this.  I think it’s the combo of the roasted sprouts, the blue/feta/goat cheese, the walnuts and the craisins…something about it.  In fact, I ate this for lunch yesterday…and will be eating the rest of it today for lunch.

*When you buy brussel sprouts, PLEASE remember to collect the smallest ones you can find.  Big ones are not the best ones, learned this the hard way :)

Try them for yourself, here’s the recipe!

Maple Roasted Brussel Sprouts

1 1/2 lb brussel sprouts, end cut off and halved or quartered

1/4 cup evoo

1/4 cup maple syrup (I’ve used both the real stuff and the hungry jacks, they both work but the real is better!)

garlic salt

pepper

1/3 cup dried cranberries

1/3 cup blue cheese (or feta or goat)

1/2 cup walnuts

Preheat oven to 400.  Mix sprouts, evoo, syrup, garlic salt & pepper (to taste).  Roast 20-40* minutes until desired doneness (the browner for me the better).

*Add the walnuts the last 10 minutes to toast.

Let cool a few minutes and place in bowl with the craisins & cheese.  Add garlic salt if needed.
