I was never a fan of Brussels sprouts, and I’m attributing it to the fact that I only had them boiled.

Once I started roasting vegetables instead of steaming or boiling, I started enjoying more vegetables. Roasting vegetables adds more flavor and they hold onto spices and seasoning well.

Whenever I’ve made these maple and cranberry roasted brussels sprouts for Thanksgiving, they are always a favorite.

Ingredients

The ingredients are simple and easy.

Brussels Sprouts– they need to be washed trimmed and cut in half.

Dried Cranberries– I used orange-flavored ones which imparted even more flavor.

Fried Onions- the ones from the can. I got mine at Trader Joes but any grocery store should have them during the holidays.

Maple Syrup- the real stuff or substitute honey.

Spices- Smoked Paprika, Salt, and Pepper

Tips on Roasting Brussels Sprouts

Have your oven pre-heated so it’s hot before you roast the Brussels sprouts, this goes for any vegetable.

Make sure the oil and spices are distributed evenly. I just use my hands to toss everything together.

Arrange the brussels sprouts in an even layer on a baking sheet. Roast them until browned and crispy, around 20-30 minutes. You can also flip them over halfway through the roasting time.

After Roasting, place the brussels sprouts in an oven-safe dish and add maple syrup, cranberries, and top with fried onions.

Place back into the oven for 10 more minutes. This is where magic happens and the maple syrup caramelizes onto the brussels sprouts. Don’s skip this step!

Make Ahead Tips

For serving the day of, the brussels sprouts can be kept warm in the oven at 200 degrees for up to an hour.

For the day before, you can roast the brussels sprouts and assemble in a dish with the maple syrup and cranberries. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

When you are ready to serve, place the fried onions on top and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes until they are warmed through.
