Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts

At a recent dinner party, I had the best brussels sprouts I’ve ever tasted. They were tender-yet-crisp and caramelized in spots, and the maple syrup beautifully countered the slight bitterness typical to brussels sprouts. Of course I begged the hostess for the recipe, and here it is – maple roasted brussels sprouts – so simple and easy to make, yet so, so good.

  • 1 lb. fresh Brussels sprouts
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
