Molasses roasted Brussels sprouts.

Roasted Brussels sprouts with molasses

We are convinced that this recipe could make a Brussels sprout lover out of just about anyone. And we’d all do well to eat more of them since they’re one of those healthier vegetables.

Roasting brings out the sweetness of the sprouts and creates some crispy bits that we love. The molasses enhances that sweetness and tames the bitterness that Brussels sprouts are often known for.

It’s up to you if you want to slice your sprouts in half. It they’re large they’ll cook faster and caramelize more. If they’re smaller, like ours in the photo, no need to slice them.

    Brussel sprouts are on my menu for Christmas dinner so I will try your new twist on preparing them. I will add the bacon bits and I think a little squirt of lemon juice at the end as well. Thank you. (Just another silent brussel sprouts lover)
