Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries and Balsamic

Monday, December 12, 2016
One of my very favorite ways to serve brussels sprouts, a vegetable that really doesn't get enough attention. The cranberries make them sweet. Roasted they are a little crispy and so tender they just burst with flavors.

I like to call these my mini cabbage recipe with cranberries. The balsamic vinegar just compliments this dish.

These are sweet tender and very tender and so pretty for a Holiday table!

  1. What intriguing combination! I never thought to combine Brussels sprouts and cranberries. I want to try this, I'm curious :) Bye, have a good day

  2. Sounds really Christmasy with cranberries in the mix. It looks yummy. I'll definitely try it out - thanks!

  3. Will this recipe make me a brussel sprout fan? I have never liked them, but I am guessing it is because of the way they were prepared. The cranberry and balsamic part sounds good.

  4. very nice Claudia. I love brussels and with cranberries are just perfect. Do you have them for Christmas as well where you are? In the UK they are a must!

  5. This is definitely a tasty way to serve sprouts. I'll have to remember this.

  6. These look amazing, Claudia...the sweetness of the dried cranberries must taste wonderful with the Brussels sprouts!

  7. This sounds a lot like the recipe I recipe uses bacon and balsamic, but the cranberries added would taste good too. I'm going to try that.

  8. Loving this. Brussels sprouts are loved here. I usually do them with curry and butter but I love the autumn twist and the cranberries. An the roasting. On my agenda for the week.
