Brussels spouts.  Do you love them or hate them?  Or have you even tried them?  Because the girl that was checking out my groceries had never tried them.   She didn’t even know how to cook them.  I do have to say I used to fall into this category.  I thought brussels sprouts…  gross.   It all changed for me when my sister in law introduced us to this recipe at Thanksgiving a few years ago.  If brussels sprouts are prepared the right way, they are AMAZING!!

I prefer my brussels sprouts to be drizzled with real maple syrup to give them that sweet taste.  But you can also drizzle them with balsamic vinegar which is also delicious.  The roasting of brussels spouts and butternut squash is my favorite way to prepare them!  They get that crispy, slightly charred edge with a tender inside.

The addition of crunchy pecans and cranberries truly makes this the perfect holiday side.  You are going to love this recipe!

  1. Looks good but i thought the pecans would be good roasted and yet they might get too soft with the sauce…maybe around the edges of the pan. What do you think?
