These irresistible sprouts are a holiday favorite but too tasty to serve just once a year. The recipe is easily halved for smaller gatherings or an everyday family meal.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Peel off any yellowed or wilted leaves from the outside of Brussels sprouts and trim bottoms. Halve any that are the size of walnuts or larger. Place on a rimmed baking sheet, drizzle with oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss until coated. Roast, stirring once or twice, until sprouts are browned and just tender when pierced at the base with a paring knife, about 25 minutes. Drizzle with maple syrup and toss with pumpkin seeds. Roast 5 more minutes until pumpkin seeds are just toasted.
