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!)
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.
