This flavorful Honey Mustard Brussel Sprouts recipe is an easy side dish that just may have you asking for more.
Brussel sprouts: they're not the most popular of vegetables.
I mean, let's just be honest. Brussel sprouts are the vegetables that make children cringe. Many, many adults turn their nose up at the thought of the stinky veggie. And while I do believe brussels had a little moment in the food-trend-spotlight, all-in-all, they will just never be the "beloved" vegetable.
Interestingly, brussel sprouts are a veg that I have only begun to love in the past handful of years.
I can't remember quite the moment when I decided that I liked them, but I'm pretty sure it had something to do with my one of my favorite restaurants and lots of butter. And there's nothing wrong with that.
What brussel sprouts have taught me is that it really can take DECADES to decide that you like a vegetables. I know we had brussels growing up occasionally; then I think I took a good decade (maybe more) hiatus, at least. And here I am now, truly loving the darn things. So let this be a lesson to us all, including me, that it's worth exposing our kids and continuing to try foods ourselves. You never know when the day may come that you or your child decide a food is actually delicious.
So let's just all say this out loud: Be patient.
Be patient with yourself. Be patient with your loved ones.
Sometimes, it just takes time and exposure.
Now, let's get on to the recipe. These Honey Mustard Brussel Sprouts are so easy and so tasty.
When you cut up the brussel sprouts, try to get them as uniform in shape as possible. This helps them cook evenly and avoid having mushy brussels. (Gross!)
