Maple Balsamic & Bacon Olive Oil Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts

November 18, 2018

Maple Balsamic & Bacon Olive Oil Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Ingredients

2 pints Brussels sprouts (approximately 4-5 cups)

3-4 Tablespoons Bacon or Butter Flavored Olive Oil

1-2 Tablespoon Maple Dark Balsamic Vinegar

Salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste

Directions

Preheat oven to 400. Trim up the stem end of the brussel sprouts and remove all wilted and yellow or brown exterior leaves. Cut large sprouts in half.  Put the sprouts and on large sheet pan and toss with the butter or bacon flavored olive oil, (just enough to coat evenly) and season with salt and pepper.

Roast in the oven for 25-35 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally to brown the vegetables evenly, until crisp and slightly charred on the outside and fork tender on the inside. (Your cooking time will depend on the size of your sprouts.) Take them out of the oven, drizzle on a little maple balsamic check seasoning and adjust if needed.  Best served warm. Enjoy!

Cooking Note: You can add in dried cranberries, garlic, onion, pancetta, or bacon crumbles if you want to bring it to the next level!

This recipe is so versatile and easy I promise! It is more of a “formula” than a recipe.  Be creative and have fun!

Add something crunchy like walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, pepitas…(for crunchy satisfying texture)

Add some fresh fruit like apples, grapes, pears, orange supremes…(for that burst of freshness)

Add some dried fruit like cranberries, cherries, raisins… (for a sweet/tart chew)

Add something with a little bite like red onion, pickled onion, green onion…(for a kick)

If you don’t like goat cheese or want to make this a hearty meal replace the croquettes with grilled shrimp or chicken, and add a sprinkle of blue cheese crumbles or feta. 

You can also change the dressing to mix any of your favorite Island Olive Oil and vinegar pairings

A shrub is also known as a drinking vinegar which has actually been around for a very long time. It was originally a way of preserving fruit. It’s usually made with apple cider vinegar, fruit and sweetened with sugar and becomes a sweet and sour syrup, but our traditionally made balsamic fruit flavored vinegars are an easy probiotic option without the addition of sugar.  A generous splash can be diluted with seltzer water, and can be spiked with a spirit so it’s a perfect alcohol-optional beverage.
