Brussels sprouts…friend or foe? Do these little green globes make their way onto your holiday table?
I wasn’t always crazy about this cruciferous vegetable, but once I tried these roasted brussels sprouts, I became a fan. The little leafy edges are so tasty when they get browned and crisp. And when you add a delicious maple mustard glaze, these become addictive!
We were eating these maple roasted Brussels sprouts like they were going out of style the other day. And this is such an easy side dish for Thanksgiving. Just a few ingredients that you probably already have go into the flavorful sauce, and you just drizzle it over the apples and sprouts, and roast for about a half an hour.
How do Brussels sprouts grow?
Brussels sprouts grow upward from the ground on a large stalk. Sometimes you can buy them on the stalk at the store or at the farmer’s market, or you can buy them in a package, already removed from the stalk.
How do you remove Brussels sprouts from the stalk?
Use a sharp knife to remove the sprouts from the stalk. Be careful when trimming them! I find that it is easier to start from the bottom of the stalk rather than the top.
Do you have to soak Brussels sprouts?
Brussels sprouts really aren’t very dirty, but after you trim the ends, you should place them in a bowl of cold water for a few minutes. Any dirt or debris should just fall to the bottom of the bowl.
How to make roasted Brussels sprouts?
- Clean the Brussels sprouts and pat them dry. Cut each sprout in half.
- Place the Brussels sprouts and apples on a cookie sheet.
- Make the maple mustard dressing and drizzle it over the Brussels sprouts and apples.
- Roast at 400 degrees for about 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper before serving.
