Roasted Brussels Sprouts

There are times when simple is best and that is exactly true when it comes to brussels sprouts. I have had brussels sprout casserole before that is creamy, cheesy and trying its hardest to hide the truth that brussels sprouts are in there. It was ok, but nothing like this recipe. These roasted brussels sprouts are so simple to make and they celebrate the wonderful flavour of these veggies that resemble little mini cabbages.

Packed with nutrients, brussels sprouts are low in calories and carbs, yet have high levels of protein, vitamin C and K. One serving of brussels sprouts yields 81% the daily value of vitamin C.

Roasting brussels sprouts take minutes to prep and get in the oven. Not only that but they are sweet, toasty and full of flavour. This recipe is the perfect weeknight side dish!

  • I was just telling my wife that we need to get some brussels for thanksgiving. I am home smoking bacon, and will brush these little babies with some of the rendered bacon fat, and then when done, toss them with the real bacon. AMAZING!!!!
