I will not eat brussels sprouts… unless it’s with bacon or unless it’s tossed in balsamic vinegar and maple syrup. Those are my two exceptions.

You can also throw in some carrots too. I mean, we’re having a veggie fest so let’s add in as much as possible. I wouldn’t mind some mushrooms or corn either. But I digress.

Now the dried cranberries are an absolute must, and a perfect complement to the tangy balsamic vinegar with the sweet notes of the maple syrup. It’s truly one of my favorite side dishes ever, and something I crave for more than just once a year!
