Honey Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts
Lots and lots of spring things happening in my parts lately, and I’m not just referring to the weather. It’s funny because before I moved to our new house a year and a half ago, I’m not sure if I saw half as much nature than I do on our lovely street we now call home. We only moved about 2 miles but we now live close to a lake and on a street with tall, old trees, so our daily environment is definitely a little different. We have lots of squirrels and birds and even rabbits to entertain us, among a few other not so cute creepy crawly critters slithering around us that we won’t discuss.
Spring babies have been everywhere I turn. In just a couple weeks I’ve spotted a mama and her ducklings cutting through my neighbors yard, a couple of newly hatched goslings (they were so adorably yellow, fuzzy and just perfect) and just the other day I drove past our neighborly Sandhill Cranes but this time they were standing with a couple of precious mini versions that were just a quarter of their size.
I love it.
I also love these Brussels sprouts, which have absolutely nothing to do with spring. We get hit with plenty of Brussels recipes in the fall and winter, but I have to tell you I haven’t been able to get my hands on some nice looking Brussels sprouts until just recently on a trip to Costco. I snagged that bag up as soon as I saw it. In season or not, I was due for some roasted sprouts – specifically these Honey Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts.
I know some people have strong feelings about Brussels sprouts – either loving them wholeheartedly or hating them with a passion. I will tell you that in my household I am one of 4 family members (the jury is still out on our youngest) in the lover club. My mother in law is also a sprout lover so when I make them I always package some up and bring them over to her to enjoy as well.
I paired up this side veggie with Maple Mustard Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Sweet Potatoes and Mango and it was the perfect green accompaniment for the meal.
Hope everyone had an awesome weekend!

This is very similar to the recipe I usually follow! The sweet is JUST perfect with the brussels! So delicious! Yayy spring/summer!
One of my favorite side dishes, Aggie. These look fantastic. 🙂
These look fantastic. I love the sweet/tangy combination of honey and balsamic vinegar. You can never go wrong roasting brussels sprouts.
I finally got my 3 1/2 year old to eat Brussels Sprouts! I am so happy because I love them. Now I am looking for new ways to make them for him–I am definitely trying this out! I hadn’t thought to use balsamic to roast them yet but I love it.
It adds a nice flavor to them. I have to start my little one on eating while he’s young. Yay for your 3 1/2 year old! good job mama 🙂
I could eat Brussels every day of the year without complaining!! So good!!!
I saute brussels in balsamic and molasses on the stove, but I absolutely love roasted vegetables. Will make this next time!
oh that sounds so good Amy! I never use molasses!
I thought I was over brussels sprouts for the year until I saw some gorgeous ones at my market this morning. Sauteed some up with my lunch and they were fab! I usually add a drizzle of maple syrup to mine, but I’m loving the honey-balsamic combo you have going on here.
I love adding maple to them too…I need to start sauteing them more!
These sprouts look fantastic! Love the glaze!
These sprouts look fantastic – can’t wait to try out that balsamic glaze!
