2016 was the year of the Brussels sprout in our house. Towards the end, we were roasting them almost weekly, so when we were asked to bring a green vegetable for Thanksgiving, it was a no-brainer.
This recipe feeds a crowd (we probably could have halved it for a buffet for 10 people) and travels well. Heat bacon-sprinkled baking sheets until sizzling hot, add Brussels sprouts, cut in half and tossed with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and roast until tender. Drizzle with a glaze of apple cider, brown sugar, and vinegar.
Roasted brussels sprouts have become popular on restaurant appetizer menus in the last several years, so we became interested in learning how to make them at home. They’ve become an easy and delicious vegetable side dish we make often. They feel healthy and decadent at the same time.
