Welcome back to DLB's Kitchen! Today we're going to whip up one of my absolute favorite Thanksgiving side dishes, my Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Bliss. Brussels sprouts, butternut squash, roasted pecans... all the Thanksgiving Vibes in one dish.
Don't forget to watch the video to see how it's made + I give you my TOP TEN THANKSGIVING TIPS to stay on track this holiday.
For The Sprouts:
3cupsBrussels sprouts (use less or more as needed)
Salt and pepperto taste
For The Squash or Sweet Potatoes:
1 1/2lbbutternut squashpeeled, seeded, and cubed into 1-inch cubes
Ground cinnamon to taste
1cupdried cranberries (I eyeball this measurement)
2-4tablespoons Balsamic GLAZE (add more as needed)
Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash/Sweet Potatoes
Preheat oven to 400 F. Lightly grease a baking sheet with olive oil or cooking spray.
Cut all the Brussels sprouts in half.
In a bowl, combine cut Brussels sprouts, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Toss them around.
Place onto a baking sheet cut side down (place them on one side of the baking sheet to make room for the squash/sweet potatoes if you are making a smaller batch).
In a medium bowl, combine cubed butternut squash, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and cinnamon, then toss it up.
Place butternut squash on baking sheet next to Brussels sprouts. Bake for 20 minutes, mix around and flip over, then bake another 5-10 minutes to brown on both sides. (Periodically check to make sure they don't get over done).
Note: You can roast both Brussels sprouts and butternut squash on 2 separate baking sheets at the same time, on the same rack in the oven if you are making a larger portion.
Preheat oven at 350 F
Put pecans on a baking sheet and lightly coat with cooking spray/olive oil.
Sprinkle cinnamon on top to taste.
Toast in the oven for 3-5 minutes. They toast very fast, so make sure to frequently check them while they are in the oven.
In a large bowl, combine roasted Brussels sprouts, roasted butternut squash, pecans, and cranberries, and mix to combine.
Add 2 or 4 tablespoons of Balsamic GLAZE, and drizzle over the top!
