Have you ever made something and were so impressed with the results that you knew right away this would become a staple at your dinner table? That’s what happened when I made these Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries and Walnuts.

It’s sweet. It’s salty. Crunchy. Tangy.

Let’s just say it’s craveable.

And I’m pretty sure you could make it with your hands tied behind your back.

That said, I am admittedly not the biggest fan of maple syrup. You won’t often catch me eating a stack of pancakes or waffles dripping with syrup.

This recipe just happens to have the perfect amount of maple flavor. Not too much, and not too little. When roasted with the Brussels sprouts, it caramelizes and creates the most amazing glaze. Add cranberries for tartness and walnuts for crunch, and it’s the perfect side dish to any fall, winter or holiday meal.

Not so sure you or your family are Brussels sprouts fans? These may change your mind.

I can foresee these appearing on my Thanksgiving or Christmas table for sure.

Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries and Walnuts
By Adrienne of A Big Mouthful

1 pound Brussels sprouts, ends trimmed and cut in half (leave the smallest ones whole)
2 Tablespoons maple syrup
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup dried cranberries

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Place the Brussels sprouts on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with the maple syrup and olive oil. Toss, using your hands, making sure to arrange the Brussels sprouts in a single layer.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until the Brussels sprouts begin to caramelize and brown. Sprinkle them with the walnuts and bake 2 minutes more to toast the nuts.

Remove from the oven and pour the Brussels sprouts into a large bowl. Add the cranberries and carefully toss. Check to see if more salt or pepper is needed.

Serve warm or at room temperature.
