    Well I’ll admit – I’ve always been partial to Brussels sprouts. So I can eat them pretty much as I would simple steamed broccoli.

    That said: this adds them to a whole new level. For my personal tastes, I’d maybe dial back slightly on the maple syrup, as I like the funky savoury notes of the sprouts. Just get some nice maple bacon. Or – better yet – make your OWN bacon (as we’ve done) and use that. 😉

    Paired this with a Chilean sauvignon Blanc.

    I loved all the different textures going on in the dish… definitely one of those surprises that Dorie anticipated with this new collection of recipes.

    This was good, I loved every bit of flavoring in it.

    Even bacon didn’t change Bill’s mind about Brussels sprouts! Shocking, I know. It just means I get the whole batch 🙂

    We loved these too! Delicious!

    Hehe, I was totally reading that first part, thinking, “yeah, me. I don’t like ’em.” Glad to have found a kindred spirit. A friend of mine calls them “devil cabbages.” I’m not quite that way, though I obviously choose to eat other things given the opportunity. Looks great, Mardi, and totally agree that I’d try anything for a Dorie recipe!

    Yes, such a great dish to make! Plus, it was such an interesting experience for me as I never grew up on brussels sprouts and was never exposed to them until at least my 30’s! isn’t that crazy? Even buying them this week was my first experience!

    I loved how well this dish turned out and can’t wait to try making it again! Maybe for other people instead of just me eating it all by myself for dinner 😀

    I’ve always loved Brussels sprouts (weird, I know). These, though, are in my top three for favourite sprouts recipe now. Yours look just gorgeous in that pan.

  9. Emily November 11, 2018 at 02:15 #

    Looks fab in that pan. I particularly like Mr Neil’s input on this Friday’s recipe!

    My hubby prefers the maple syrup and mustard version, more than the balsamic!

    I love Brussels sprouts, but I know there are non-sprouts eaters out there. I’m glad this recipe works for them too!

    I liked the mustard/syrup combo though agree with Mr. N that those flavors overpower the punch of the sprouts. That fact may be Dorie’s point. For those who are not sprout lovers, this makes them palatable. I will use this mustard/syrup concoction with other veggies. Loved the bacon.

    I had fun with this one as I have prepared a similar recipe for years, courtesy of Nana who uses bacon and delicious pignoli nuts with our roasted sprouts. But that mustard/maple combo was quite a flavor. I thoroughly enjoyed it as like Mary, will likely use that combo for other veggies too. As always, lovely photos !

    Mardi, you sure have a lot of things you don’t really like for an otherwise adventurous cook.
    Good to know you found these palatable though. Keep on trying.
