Easy Honey Butter Brussels Sprouts Recipe

I hated brussels sprouts as a kid. But that's because the only time we ever had them was at our Thanksgiving dinner with another family, and apparently the host didn't know how to cook them well. As an adult, though, they became one of my favorite vegetables, which is unfortunate because they are one of the more expensive vegetables locally. So I keep them for special occasions. For my birthday I decided to make some, and chose to do a honey butter type recipe. 

This time I remembered what I did wrong the last time I made brussels sprouts and made sure to roast mine before adding the rest of the seasonings, so that they could actually get browned, and I'm glad I did. Since I used frozen, they still didn't actually get crispy, but that's ok with me. 

These brussels sprouts are so good, they're addicting. I highly recommend them. They're pretty allergy friendly; other than the dairy they contain none of the common allergens. They're gluten free, vegetarian, and did I mention quite easy to make?

It's also pretty fuss free. You don't actually have to use measuring spoons- feel free to eyeball the amounts in this recipe. And depending on the prices of brussels sprouts where you live, can be pretty frugal as well.
