Roasted Maple Brussels Sprouts

Who knew brussel sprouts could taste amazing.

Remember these little babies served up as a child usually boiled to within and inch of their lives ….. EW.

I actually didn’t believe these would be anything special, well turns out I was completely mistaken …they are to die for good ! 

Roasting veggies is always better in my book and these are no exception, it completely changes the taste and texture of brussels  sprouts. 

Roasted Maple Brussels Sprouts

When I say I disliked Brussels sprouts I wasn’t kidding I actually despised them …. so when these entered my life I was in shock at how different they tasted being roasted. 

So if you are a hard core I hate Brussels sprouts person then I totally dare you to try these and see what you think, I swear your gunna be shocked !

1/8 tsp cayenne pepper *optional

Directions 

Preheat oven to 400 f

Cut trimmed Brussels sprouts in half

Mix Brussels spouts with oil and salt (cayenne if using) until fully coated

Pour the maple syrup over the Brussels sprouts and stir gently to coat 

Roast for 5 more min until nice and browned
