    Caramelized Brussels Sprouts

    Caramelized Brussels Sprouts

    Alright, folks. Let’s talk brussels sprouts. My entire life, I have hated them. HATED THEM. I can remember one time my sister and I were forced to eat them at a relatives house and it was an awful memory that I think scarred me for a long time.

    Then when I was in Vancouver, this past September, I went out to a nice restaurant with some new friends and the waiter convinced me to try their brussels sprouts. He pretty much guaranteed that I would LOVE them. If I’m totally honest, I think I really just wanted to appear “versatile” in front of my new friends. Come on, you would too! So I tried them. And to my SHOCK, I didn’t hate them. In fact, I LOVED them. Like SO much! 

    Caramelized Brussels Sprouts The next week when I was grocery shopping, I bought my first ever bunch of brussels sprouts. When my husband looked in the fridge that night he said “What the heck are these doing in here?” And I told him that I would blow his mind with a totally different way to make the sprouts. He completely doubted me, which made me even more excited to prove him wrong!

    I wasn’t exactly sure of how the restaurant made the brussels sprouts taste so good, but I was committed to figuring it out.

    I’m so happy to say that not only did I figure it out, but my hubby fell in love with this method of cooking them as well. And he and I have now mastered our own recipe for these sprouts. And guess what? Not only do we love them, but our KIDS love them! They are just THAT good!

    So I thought I would share this absolutely GEM of a recipe and change YOUR mind too about brussels sprouts. Just in time for Christmas, why not make this and wow all of your dinner guests this holiday season!

    I never get tired of brussel sprouts and I wonder if I ever will. One of my favorite vegetables, especially covered in bacon and Parmesan cheese!
