Maple Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Walnuts and Apples

Roasted brussel sprouts are the perfect accompaniment to any meal.  Brussel sprouts, apples, and walnuts are tossed with oil and maple syrup to create the perfect fall side dish.

The only vegetable that both of my kids will eat every time I serve it is brussel sprouts.  In fact, they will request brussel sprouts for dinner multiple times a week.  I attribute the popularity of the brussel sprout in our home to the way we cook them.  We always roast our brussel sprouts and they are always a hit.

I decided to add apple and walnuts to the mix and roast the three ingredients in an oil and maple syrup mixture.  Brussel sprouts are similar to cabbage so I thought along the lines of a warm, sweet and toasted cole slaw.

One of my tricks to roasting brussel sprouts well is to cut each sprout in to quarters.  This makes the brussel sprout easier to eat and allows to to cook quicker than the whole sprout.

I roast my sprouts on pan lined with foil to make clean up a breeze. You can also fold the mixture right in the foil and roast on the grill.
