Ingredients and Variations
BRUSSELS SPROUTS: If your Brussels are large, cut them in half, if they’re smaller they can be left whole. For best results, try to get them uniform in size. Create a medley of glazed veggies by using brussels sprouts, thick chunks of zucchini, or potatoes (adjust cooking time as needed).
GLAZE: Maple syrup makes this recipe super easy. But they can be sprinkled with brown sugar (like we do for bacon wrapped mini smokies). Feel free to mix in your faves including balsamic vinegar, sriracha, cayenne pepper, or honey.
