Brussel Sprouts Roasted on the Stalk

I guess I never gave it much thought as to how brussel sprouts grow, but when I found them on the stalk at Trader Joe’s this past summer, I was amazed! I made them with my usual recipe here, until tonight…

With the use of maple syrup and dried cranberries, I think this would be a great side dish for Thanksgiving or anytime. I made it with chicken and it was delicious. Hope you enjoy.

Ingredients:

1 – Trader Joe’s Brussel Sprouts on a Stalk

3/4 – cup maple syrup

1/4 – cup olive oil

Fresh ground pepper to taste

Fresh ground sea salt

Garnish with dried cranberries or pomegranate seeds

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Trim stalk of any unsightly parts

Rinse stalk in cold water

Wrap in cling wrap and microwave for 4-5 minutes in High.  (I had to cut the stalk in half to fit in my microwave.)

Whisk maple syrup and olive oil together

Place stalk on roasting pan. With a plastic basting brush, baste the sprouts well.  Then pour the rest of the maple syrup mixture over top.

Season to taste with salt and pepper

Roast for 45 minutes until sprouts are fork tender

To serve: Sprinkle with dried cranberries or pomegranate seeds.
