Autumn Brussels Sprouts


We love easy side dishes, which is why we’re crazy about this recipe for autumn Brussels sprouts. The ingredients are simple – sprouts, cranberries and almonds – but the flavor combination is complex. Roasting the sprouts brings out their natural sweetness, which cuts the tartness of the cranberries just enough, and the almonds provide a great nutty crunch.

This recipe is great for holiday dinners because it doesn’t require much prep work or clean up. Just bake everything together in one pan and serve! We love it alongside ham, roasts or turkey, and it’s so good that we never have leftovers to put away. Brussels sprouts pair well with sweet or savory ingredients, too, so don’t be afraid to substitute raisins, walnuts or whatever else sounds good.
