This Thanksgiving I fully intend on having brussel sprouts on the table. And everyone is going to enjoy them, I swear!
Last year I tried. Remember that shredded sprout deal that everyone in the blog world went nuts over last fall? Yeah, I made that. Even I had to admit it was horrible. And I love brussel sprouts! I was hugely disappointed and swore off sprouts for at least a week.
So here I go, trying again. This recipe could make even the strongest sprout hater a believer, I’m sure of it. It’s sweet, it’s spicy, it’s everything you could want in a vegetable!
This is also a very quick and easy way to prepare the brussel sprouts – and we all know how necessary that is on Thanksgiving. Just pop ‘em in the oven for awhile and once they’re done, you just have to whisk the maple syrup and cayenne. Seriously couldn’t be easier.
