Sweet Roasted Brussel Sprouts {Recipe}

Happy Thursday!!

So I found a recipe in one of my Taste of Home magazines and knew I had to try it. Now, let me just preface this recipe by saying, I am not a fan of brussel sprouts, AT ALL, but these are just too hard to resist.



What you need:

2 bags of brussel sprouts
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 tsp garlic powder

1 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup sugar

1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 400*. Cut brussel sprouts in half and put in a bowl. Toss with the oil and garlic powder. Transfer to a greased baking dish. Roast in the oven for 30 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile in a small saucepan combine vinegar and sugar. Bring to a boil , stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat. Simmer for 15-20 minutes or until syrupy, stirring occasionally.

After about 30 minutes of brussel sprouts in oven, sprinkle with 1/2 cup sliced almonds and pour drizzle into dish. Stir. Put back in oven for 5-10 minutes.

Once brussel sprouts are finished baking, transfer to serving dish. Drizzle with other half of almonds and cranberries to finish.

I did change the recipe up a little bit from the magazine as far as process goes, but to each their own.

I hope you enjoy!!!
