Glazed Brussels Sprouts

These little gems turned my daughters boyfriend on to brussels sprouts.

4 cups fresh brussels sprouts, with the ends trimmed ( I have also used frozen sprouts in a pinch)
1 TBSP olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

3 TBSP balsamic vinegar
3 TBSP maple syrup

Pre-heat oven to 425. Wash and trim the Brussels sprouts.  Toss them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Place on a baking sheet with  lined with sprayed foil.  Bake for about 20 minutes or until tender. Transfer to a serving bowl. Combine vinegar and syrup in a small bowl, and drizzle over brussels sprouts and toss to coat.

* I have also just steamed the brussels sprouts as usual and combined the vinegar and maple syrup with salt and pepper and a tiny drizzle of olive oil and mixed it with the steamed sprouts.
Super tasty
