Best-ever Brussel Sprouts

Brussels sprouts? I mean, come on?


I know, I thought the same thing! But I found this recipe and it had maple syrup in it and so I decided to try it. And yes I tweaked it! These are the bomb – my three-year-old eats them like candy. (Anything maple syrup gets my attention.😋)





1 pound of brussels sprouts, 2 tablespoons of butter, ghee, or some other good fat. 2 tablespoons maple syrup. 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard, A sprinkling of salt and a quarter cup of water.

slice off the ends of the brussels sprouts. Melt the butter in a pan and toast the brussels sprouts on medium high heat. Have your water handy, and as soon as the brussels sprouts look golden/toasty Add water and cover for seven minutes. Continue cooking on medium heat. Then, remove lid, sprinkle salt around evenly, and add maple syrup and Dijon mustard.

Toss well to coat and remove from heat. Served promptly, while warm.

Happy munching!
