Honey Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

by DanicasDaily on November 4, 2011

I grew up NEVER liking Brussels Sprouts at all.  I mean, they are little balls of strong flavored cabbage.  But, I learned that if you prepare them the right way, versus just boiling and buttering them, that they can have a phenomenal flavor.  In this recipe, I combine my favorite roasting ingredients (Olive Oil, Balsamic, Honey) to add a salty sweet balsamic caramelized flavor to these little balls of cabbage.
