Harvest Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Glazed Walnuts




I have recently developed a small obsession with brussels sprouts. I never went near them until late last year when my sister made them for our weekly family dinner night. I promised to try at least one so I ate one and then another and then another until I had cleaned my plate. Now, I buy brussels sprouts every week and Mr. What I Gather and I have experimented with some different ways to prepare them. This has been one of our favorites. This would be a great dish to take along to a holiday party. It will probably make you the most popular guest at the party. Don't say I didn't warn you.



Harvest Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Glazed Walnuts
Serves 8

Ingredients
-3 tbsp olive oil
-2 lbs brussels sprouts, quartered
-2 medium yellow onions, finely chopped
-2 medium apples, finely chopped (we used gala, but any variety will work)
-2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
-salt and pepper to taste

For the walnuts -
-1/4 cup chopped walnuts
-2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
-1 tsp dried rosemary
-1 tsp dried sage
-1 tsp dried parsley

Directions
-Preheat oven to 400 F
-Add olive oil, brussels sprouts, onions, apples, vinegar, salt and pepper to a bowl and stir well
-Pour mixture into a glass baking dish
-Bake at 400 for 25 minutes
-While brussels are roasting, mix walnuts, vinegar and herbs in a small bowl
-Remove brussels from oven  and add walnuts to baking dish. Stir well
-Return to oven for an additional 15 to 20 minutes (I like some of that burnt crispiness so I usually leave them in for at least 20 minutes)
-Serve and become wildly popular with your friends and family
