Roasted  Brussel Sprouts with Grapes

Roasted  Brussel Sprouts with Grapes

Brussel sprouts are getting lots more attention these days then they ever have.  They are delicious, easy to make and have been my sons favorite vegetable for a long time.   This version of roasted brussel sprouts is my favorite,  it blends nicely with other vegetable dishes as it does not have a sauce.

Whenever I make a large dinner for a group I like to have  side dishes that warm up in the oven.  Doing it this way takes the stress out of having everything ready at the same time, dealing with the dishes and trying to entertain guest.  By making things ahead you all the prep and cleanup is done leaving you time to serve and enjoy your guests.

To make ahead,  cook as normal after cooked place in buttered casserole dish.  Wrap with tin foil.  To warm up place in oven twenty minutes before serving.

Happy Thanksgiving

    1. Hi Randi, I love roasted brussel sprouts. This recipe is a bit fancier than my typical toss in olive oil and in the oven sprouts. I am sure you will like it.

  1. OMG, how good does this look and I bet it tastes just perfect. I’m so making it for Thanksgiving. Such an nontraditional side. One of my favorite cabbages and grapes!!! I might add herb and olive oil marinated feta cubes on top just because I am a huge fan of grapes and feta skewers…In any event – genius!

  2. This is such an interesting combination, I´ve never tried it before and would love to make it. We love everything roasted, it´s so good! I bet this is no exception. Thanks for the recipe Leanna!!

  3. I love brussel sprouts but unfortunately no one else does 🙁 I can eat them raw, smothered in cheese sauce, it doesn’t matter how they come. I love them. I’m going to try your recipe maybe I can convert the rest of the family to my side
