Tips for the best Balsamic Brussels Sprouts
- Trim the ends off your Brussels sprouts and remove any faded or yellowing outer leaves.
- Cut the sprouts in half, the cut side roasts up really nicely in the oven!
- Take care they don’t burn after you return them to the oven, they can go from done to burnt in a flash!
- If you have time you can reduce the balsamic vinegar by about half by simmering in a pot on the stove, this will give it a richer flavor
- If you like them a little sweeter toss them in some honey after they are cooked.
Kitchen items used to make Balsamic Brussels Sprouts
- You’ll need a sharp kitchen knife to cut the sprouts in half, this is similar to mine.
- Balsamic Vinegar – this is a quality brand
- A large sheet pan is a must to roast your balsamic Brussels Sprouts
- I like to line my sheet pans with parchment for easy clean up, the food doesn’t stick to it like it can with foil.
