Thanksgiving Out of the Box: Maple Glazed Brussel Sprouts

Thanksgiving out of the box

Ok, ok, give me a chance to explain.

I know, you are going to skip this recipe right? You HATE brussel sprouts you say? Well…can you give these a chance? I might just change your mind! Brussel sprouts get a bad rap, I realize this. My guess is though, that they just haven’t been prepared properly before now. This recipe is a perfect mix of fresh and flavorful.

These brussel sprouts changed me.  A few years back, I gave them a chance, and I never turned back. I love them now! They are a great addition to your Thanksgiving table and you might even change a few brussel sprout hating minds as well.

These are quick and easy and add another fresh vegetable to the Thanksgiving meal.

Give them a try-let me know what you think!

Maple Glazed Brussel Sprouts

1 1/2 lbs brussel sprouts
3 tblsp butter
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3 tblsp coarse ground mustard
1/3 cup real maple syrup
1/2 cup chicken broth

Trim the ends of the brussel sprouts. Heat large sauté pan until hot. Add butter and let it melt. Add brussel sprouts and sauté for two minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and reduce heat to medium low. In a small bowl, whisk together mustard, syrup and broth. Pour into hot pan and toss to coat. Cover pan and cook for 10 minutes. Check half way through. If liquid has turned into a thick glaze, leave cover off, but continue cook time. When finished, remove to a platter or bowl and drizzle sauce on top.
