A sweet and sticky twist to this fall vegetable makes for a great side dish for any roasted meat.

Ingredients

  • 1 pint brussel sprouts, about 12 ounces, trimmed and halved
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, as needed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup

Directions

Heat oven 425 degrees. Toss the Brussels sprouts with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Spread the Brussels sprouts in one even layer in a sheet roasting pan. Roast about 20-25 minutes. The Brussels sprouts should be tender at the core and beginning to brown slightly around the edges.

In a small saucepan, heat butter with maple syrup until the butter is melted and the mixture is warm. Toss the Brussels sprouts with the butter-syrup mixture and return them to the oven for an additional 5-10 minutes of cooking.

Maple Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Maple Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
