Maple Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

I know what you’re thinking…ewwww brussels sprouts!! But don’t be too hasty here. I didn’t think I liked them very much either, but prepared properly they can actually be quite tasty. Veggies like cabbage and brussels sprouts can turn soggy and bland when overcooked but these are sweet and tender. I served them as a side to simple  pan fried pork chops cooked in olive oil and some of my homemade butter. The dish was very filling but I didn’t feel overstuffed. I highly recommend you give the  sprouts a try 🙂
