I have never understood why Brussels Sprouts have gotten such a bad rap as the “disgusting vegetable”. They are so good! I am guessing it all comes down to them not being cooked the right way, which definitely can ruin them. Roasted is the way to go people, roasted all the way. These Roasted Balsamic Brussels Sprouts are very timely for the season as well because they make a fabulous and easy side dish for your holiday dinner table. They are extra awesome for the holidays because they add great nutrition and a low calorie option to the feasting, and they are so easy therefore not adding a bunch of extra work!
Ok, who here was well into adult hood before you knew that these were called “Brussels” sprouts, with an S, as in the capitol of Belgium? *Raises hand*. Hopefully I am not alone in this. I never heard the “S” or made the connection until honestly, last year. I could not find a straight answer as to whether they were called this because they originated in the Brussels, but that is where the name came from for some reason or another….
