Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Balsamic Vinegar

I love the fall not just for fall fashion layering, new fall boots and family holidays. I love it for the cooking and the baking! Like Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies or Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Cupcakes. Although I love sweets (a lot!) I enjoy simple and savory sides like Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Balsamic Vinegar.

I’ve used a lot of roasted brussel sprout recipes and have even cooked down balsamic vinegar into a syrupy sauce, but found that the below recipe makes for a quick, easy and tasty roasted brussel sprout recipe.

To cut down on the roasting time, I peel off the outside leaves (but don’t throw them out – they make really good brussel sprout chips when roasting!), cut off the end, then make an “X” at the bottom of the brussel sprouts.

I put them in a pot of boiling water for five minutes, then put them on a baking sheet drizzle with olive oil and salt.

Place into a hot oven and roast for 20 minutes with a quick shake half-way through. MMMM. Look at that golden brown color and those yummy brussel sprout chips!

As soon as its done, I put them into a bowl and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Such an easy, tasty and healthy side for your fall dishes!
