Cranberry Pecan Brussel Sprouts

The brussel sprouts are back!! I don’t know if you remember, but I LOVE brussel sprouts.  LOVE!  Roasting them just makes me so happy.  So when Thanksgiving rolls around it is a great excuse to doctor up my usual roasted brussels!  This holiday season is creeping up fast.  Wasn’t it just the 4th of July?  Matt and I have been living in our condo for almost 4 months! Time really flies when you are having fun.  Thanksgiving will come and go but this recipe will be great any time of the year.  Pecans, dried cranberries & blue cheese are a winning combo!

First chop the ends off of small brussel sprouts.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. brussel sprouts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic syrup
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup chopped toasted pecans

Directions

Cut the ends off of the brussel sprouts. In a large skillet over medium high heat, add olive oil. Once oil is hot add brussel sprouts and cover. Cook for 10-15 minutes, shaking the pan every few minutes for even browning, until a fork can easily pierce the brussels and they are slightly browned. Add balsamic syrup and toss to coat. Remove from heat and stir in blue cheese, cranberries and pecans. Enjoy!

  1. This looks so good! I have everything in the kitchen to make this. Generally I roasted them with red onion, s & p, with balsamic, or pan roast them with bacon but this sounds like a great new addition!
