Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Glaze

Hi Everyone,

Want to hear something weird?  I was craving Brussels Sprouts!  Who craves Brussels Sprouts?  Apparently I do!  On Sunday, my Husband wasn’t home and I was starving!  After eating all of that horrible, but tasty food from being away last week, my body was really craving something nutritional and I really wanted some vegetables.  So I pulled out my bag of Brussels Sprouts and decided to roast them up and have them for lunch!

Oven Roasted Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts

Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmmm, Mmmmm good!!  I made Roasted Brussels Sprouts once before and they didn’t turn out at all, I think I burned them, but I thought I would give the recipe one last try and finally it turned out perfect!  I roasted these sprouts in olive oil, balsamic glaze and garlic.  The flavors are so good together and what I like best are the sprouts don’t taste bitter at all.  That is one thing that scares me about cooking Brussels Sprouts.

Oven Roasted Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts

To prepare my sprouts, I cut off the stems, then cut them in half the long way.  The leaves that fell off, I just tossed them because they will burn in the oven.  My dog Sampson, loved the leaves that fell to the ground, as he gobbled them up.  I’m afraid to be smelling what he will do later!  My dog tends to fart a lot as it is, I can only imagine what Brussels Sprouts will do to him.  Yes it’s kind of gross to talk about dog farts, but such is life and after all Brussels Sprouts can make some a little gassy!

Oven Roasted Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts

For many, many years my Husband tried to get me to eat Brussels Sprouts, but I just didn’t like them.  He would tell me to try his Green Giant, frozen sprouts with cheese and I thought yuck!  Then one day I ventured out and decided to make them from scratch!  I fell in love with them.  Way better than frozen!  I have a new love for my sprouts and I am finally gave them a 2nd and 3rd try.  Do you like Brussels Sprouts?  Or is there another vegetable that you never liked and now you do?  Do share!

Have a great day!

Toodles,

Jennifer

  1. I love Brussels sprouts and crave them all the time. I love them roasted like this or even just steamed. They’re actually really good shredded raw for a salad too.

  2. I was craving for a cottage cheese the other day, so I understand :) When I was a little girl I felt like my mom was punishing me with a brussels sprouts. I did not like it at all. 10 years later I loved it :)

  4. These sound delicious! I’m a fan of balsamic on just about anything.

  5. Sounds super delish AND easy to make! That is the perfect combo for me. I never tried fresh brussel sprouts before. May have to, but may add a little bacon like a naughty minx!

  6. I love brussels sprouts and this is my favorite easy way to prepare them. p.s. I have a farting dog too, I feel your pain. :-)

  7. I don’t know why either, but I am a total fan of brussels sprouts. As long as they are made with a good sauce or bacon that is :) This recipe fits the bill-healthy and quite tasty!

  8. I have issues with brussels sprouts. They have to have some kind of yummy sauce on them. I think I could get on board with this one! :)

  9. I like brussel sprouts, but didn’t as a kid too. I love to shred them on my salads raw and roast them. Going to try this. Was wondering if you knew what balsamic glaze actually was and how to make it from scratch. I have balsamic vinegar. Thanks.

    • Hi Denise! I have to try Brussels Sprouts raw, that sounds so good! Here is a recipe to make balsamic glaze:
      Ingredients:
      1 cup balsamic vinegar
      1 tablespoon sugar
      Directions:
      In a small saucepan, combine vinegar and sugar. Bring to a boil.

      Reduce heat to medium-low, stirring occasionally and simmer 20-30 minutes.

      Remove from heat and let sauce thicken as it cools.

  10. These look delicious.. We have brusses sprouts in the garden. Cant wait to harvest them so we can try this recipe.
