Brussels sprouts with a dash of maple syrup

Daisy Nichols | The Daily Meal said never boil Brussels sprouts take some cleaned Brussels sprouts with any woody stems and yellow or brown outer leaves removed and season them generously in a bowl with olive oil, salt and pepper.
Place them on a lined baking tray and into a preheated 375 degrees F (190 C) oven for a total of about 35 minutes, checking them and stirring them every 15 minutes or so.
In the last 15 minutes drizzle over a few tablespoons of good quality maple syrup (sorry no Mrs. Butterworth or Aunt Jemima, today) and finish them in the oven until roasted, golden brown and delicious.

NOTE: I did not have ‘real maple syrup’ in my kitchen, so I used a generic store brand ‘maple syrup’ and was pleased with the results.

  1. I use honey instead of syrup, it’s really good, even my kids eat them. Actually it’s the only way they will eat them haha!

  2. As comments so frequently say on recipe websites: “A fantastic recipe. I didn’t use maple syrup or oil, just water, and hubby doesn’t like Brussels sprouts so I didn’t use them either. Certainly a recipe I’ll keep.”

  5. I’ve tried the baking part with just plain Brussel sprouts and olive oil, they were really good but, I think your idea here with the maple syrup would improve them greatly flavor wise!
