about the recipe
There's something about caramelized brussels sprouts that just makes them so darn good. Maybe it's the sweetness of the caramelization, or maybe it's the crispiness of the sprouts themselves. But whatever it is, I can't get enough of them! If you're looking for a delicious and healthy side dish to add to your Thanksgiving feast or for a busy weeknight, then look no further!
