Brussels Sprouts Three Ways

November 20, 2016 | Posted in Recipes

Of all the vegetables that come to the table on the holidays, Brussels sprouts get the worst rap of them all. There’s something about those little, round veggies that have caused children and adults to stick up their nose for years. So this year, we’ve decided to stick up for the sprouts and transform them from bitter and bland to positively mouth watering!


Now we know what you’re thinking, why should I give Brussels sprouts another chance? Well, not only are they a good source of protein, iron, and potassium, they’re also full of vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants, making them one of the healthiest vegetables around. So go ahead and have seconds (or thirds!).


We’ve adapted a few of the most delectable Brussels sprouts recipes from some of our favorite bloggers to give you three options for the holidays: Maple Balsamic, Parmesan Garlic, and a tasty Brussels sprouts and egg bake. Choose your favorite and get ready to wow your family this holiday season. We suggest serving up these sides in our Individual Baker, Bistro Bowl, and Skillet Baker.
