A new way to make our favorite vegetable is here!
Seriously, if only the 90s could see us now. Do you think the 90s would actually BELIEVE that we all love brussels sprouts these days?
I do not. My first memory of brussels sprouts was watching a friend eat them boiled and plain before we watched Snick on a Saturday night! True story. We’ve come such a long way.
I’m pumped because we have another new recipe in this year’s Thanksgiving series today! All week long, I’m showing you how to create an incredible menu with ALDI. I love these dishes so much.
The exciting news is that you can find each and every ingredient for this entire Thanksgiving spread at ALDI. Every single one! It’s amazing! Every ingredient, just one stop.
Sign me up. That’s some easy holiday shopping if I do say so myself.
It’s no secret what an absolute mustard freak I am! All things mustardy, tart and briny are in my wheelhouse. So maple mustard brussels sprouts come as no surprise. I’ve made maple mustard salmon AND maple mustard chicken before. Why not take one of my favorite vegetables and create a lovely side dish for your Thanksgiving turkey?
I love that these brussels are extra roasty and bursting with flavor. Both sweet and savory, they can truly accompany so many different meals. I love adding some nuts on top for more crunch. And this time of year, pomegranate arils make for the prettiest presentation! They also give the brussels sprouts a delish fruity bite.
Maple mustard brussels go down like this:
- Quarter your brussels sprouts or cut them in half depending on the size. This is something you need to determine as you cook. You want the brussels to be the perfect bite size, so judge the sprout size accordingly.
- Don’t crowd your pan! If you crowd the sheet pan, the brussels sprouts will steam instead of roast. That means they will be softer instead of crunchier. It’s not the end of the world, but I think we all love crunchy veggies. If needed, try two sheet pans!
- Whisk together your maple syrup and Dijon mustard so it’s like a sauce. I love to use the Specially Selected 100% Pure Maple Syrup and the Burman’s Dijon Mustard from ALDI. This blend adds the perfect tangy yet sweet flavor to the brussels sprouts. It would even be good as a dip!
- Throw on some toppings for extra texture! I like to use the Southern Grove Pistachios from ALDI as well as some fresh pomegranate arils for that pop of juicy flavor. Both make the brussels look so festive too!
I love sharing a good brussels sprouts dish on Thanksgiving, because for many, it’s the first time they will try sprouts! I’ve had a few family members fall in love with brussels sprouts after trying them on Thanksgiving for the first time and it makes me so, so happy.
Not only is this a perfect dish for the holiday season, it’s a great weeknight side dish as well. I split our weeknight meals between brussels and broccoli almost exclusively, if only because they are the two favorites in our house. These maple mustard brussels come together fast enough that we can enjoy them on a busy weeknight. Wins all around!
