Honey Balsamic Brussels Sprouts are the only brussels sprout recipe you'll ever need! They are made with olive oil, honey, balsamic vinegar, garlic, salt, and pepper, and are sweet, caramelized, and absolutely irresistible. They're a brussels sprout delicious side dish!
Brussels sprouts are, hands down, my favorite vegetable. They've always been my favorite - even as a kid. My grandparents used to steam them and slather butter on them and I couldn't get enough of them! Yeah, I was a weird kid. I used to eat them just steamed but these days Honey Balsamic Brussels Sprouts are my method of choice!
These days, my favorite way to cook brussels sprouts is to roast them so they get nice and crispy. As you can see from the photos of these honey balsamic brussels sprouts, I like my brussels sprouts EXTRA crispy. I get them crispy by roasting them at a fairly high temperature, 425 degrees F, and tossing them in a decent amount of olive oil.
To get flavor, I added honey, garlic, and balsamic vinegar to these b.sprouts! It doesn't require many ingredients when the ones you use are just full of flavor. The honey adds some sweetness, the balsamic vinegar adds a little tang and the garlic adds delicious garlic flaor.
Brussels Sprouts - fresh are absolutely the best for roasting! I cut the end off of mine and then cut them in half when I roast them.
Olive Oil - this is what helps them crisp up in the oven.
Balsamic Vinegar - this lends a little bit of acidity to the brussels sprouts, along with helping them caramelize.
Honey - just a tablespoon for a hint of sweetness.
Garlic - because, I just love it!
Salt and Pepper - obviously.
I'm not sure why it has taken me so long to share this recipe with you guys, because I've been making it, or some variation of it, for years. It's so easy and simple, and uses pantry staples which means I always have what I need to make them.
While my husband and I go crazy over these brussels sprouts, my kids are still learning to love them. I will say, however, they love the crispy little leaves the most! They also love them the most when they have a ton of flavor, so when it come to brussels sprouts, these Honey Balsamic Brussels Sprouts are my best chance at getting them to eat them!
