These tasty Roasted Balsamic Brussels Sprouts are the perfect side dish for any meal. Everyone will love these flavor-packed bites of goodness.

It’s kind of weird to be starting off the week with a post about Roasted Balsamic Brussels Sprouts. But then again, if you love Brussels sprouts as much as I do, maybe it’s not so weird.

When I was in California a few weeks ago (a recap post on that trip is coming soon), I fell in love with these tasty mini-cabbage-like-balls-of-goodness all over again. I actually ate them twice in the span of a few days.

Since then, I’ve been looking for a reason to make them. Yesterday, a good friend of mine made them and shared a picture with me, and that sealed the deal. I HAD to make them.

How d0 I make Brussels Sprouts tasty?

Now, if you think you’re not a fan of Brussels spouts, I totally get it. Growing up, I wasn’t either. However, either my tastes changed or Brussels sprouts have come a long way in the past few years.

If you haven’t tasted them in a while or made them yourself, you should really give them a try. Start with this recipe, and if you still don’t like them, then maybe they’re just not the veggie for you.

This particular recipe is so simple to make. In my opinion roasting these little guys in the oven is the best way to prepare them. In fact, I don’t care for them boiled or steamed.

Roasting Brussel sprouts keeps them crisp and crunchy. Yum!

How to make Roasted Balsamic Brussels Sprouts:

Simply roasted with olive oil, salt and pepper; they brown up so nicely, allowing the flavor to truly shine.

Plus, the little leaves that fall off are probably my favorite. They turn brown and crispy; almost like Brussels sprout chips.

Still warm right out of the oven, a drizzle of balsamic glaze (a thickened balsamic vinegar) and some freshly grated Parmesan cheese are all these bite-sized balls of yumminess need.

    I agree…. if you haven’t tried Brussells Sprouts for awhile ~ try them this way. They are sooo good…. (all veggies are good this way 😉

  • Karen at

    My husband loves brussels! I’m still trying to convert and I pretend to enjoy them for his sake. Now, I’ve certainly hard of balsamic vinegar but what is balsamic vinegar glaze?

    • Michael Wurm, Jr. at

      It’s readily available these days. It’s basically a thicker version of balsamic vinegar. I almost find it a bit sweeter too. It’s delicious!

      xo Michael
