Cider Glazed Brussel Sprouts

Got this off of the Bountiful Baskets facebook page. We had this tonight and it was SO yummy. Now if you don't like brussel sprouts in the first place, it probably won't change your mind about them. But I do like brussel sprouts and this was an excellent way to cook them. I have only had frozen ones in the past, but had some fresh ones I had to use and this was much better than simply boiling or steaming them. You could probably use frozen as well, just cut down the baking time. Also, my sprouts were pretty old and didn't look so hot. BUT I just cut off the bottoms and peeled off the first layer or two and voila! Good as new! Hope you like it!

Cider Glazed Brussel Sprouts

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Fill a baking sheet with brussel sprouts and 1-2 chunked red onions. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until sprouts are tender and starting to turn brown. Place 4 C apple cider in a medium sauce pan. Simmer until reduced to approximately 1 C. When sprouts are finished, toss with cider. Serve warm.

NOTE: I only had about 1 C of Cider so I just boiled it down about halfway and used what I had.

I haven't tried this recipe, but I do agree that roasting brussell sprouts is the ONLY way to go. I was feeling adventurous one day when brussell sprouts (fresh) were on sale. I roasted them and Seth actually declared them "tolerable." So give these a try even if you don't like BS.
