Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Dijon Aioli

My family loves brussels sprouts – which is completely opposite of how I grew up. I remember my mom would make a bag of frozen brussels and they were always mussy and gross. We would have to eat one brussels sprout and I would gag the entire time. Needless to say, I thought I never liked them … until I had them sauteed in pan until they were crispy. It was completely different and now we eat them several time a month.

I was looking for something different with a bag of brussels sprouts and saw this recipe for dijon aioli and thought I would give it a try. The aioli was amazing and I loved the creaminess it added to the roasted vegetables.

Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs and Brussels Sprouts

Can I share a secret? This is the first time I’ve made a sheet pan dinner. I’m not sure why I have never made one before, but I’m kicking myself for not doing it sooner! This recipe was so easy to make and my kids devoured it.

Usually when I make chicken, the kids complain how “dry” the chicken is … even though it’s not dry at all. They barely said two words as they inhaled the chicken and Brussels. I’ll definitely be making this recipe again!

Balsamic Sauteed Brussels Sprouts

Growing up I HATED Brussels sprouts.  My mom would buy a bag of frozen sprouts and cook them in the microwave. They smelled gross, were mushy and she would make me eat at least one. It was horrible.

A few years ago, I had them prepared a different way and was amazed how amazing they were when prepared a different way. While they still smell gross, they’re so good and I make them several times a month.This recipe is so simple and easy, plus delicious! I love the crusty bits from sauteing and the tartness of the balsamic vinegar. My kids even eat them without any complaints!

Cheesy Roasted Brussels Sprouts Dip

This recipe is one I had saved for years and I finally had a chance to make it and I’m kicking myself for not making it sooner. It was delicious, unique and would make a great dip to bring to a holiday party! I used to HATE brussels sprouts – my mom used to eat them all the time but would microwave a bag of frozen ones and I’d have to eat at least one. They were always mussy and gross. Over the past few years, I’ve found that I like them either roasted or sauteed….no steaming of sprouts in this house!
