Cranberry Glazed Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Like one week and a day, I am so excited! Thanksgiving is the start of the truly most wonderful time of the year!

Cheesy I know, but to me it really is. I love the holidays.

Cranberry Glazed Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Our Thanksgiving table is usually extremely basic. Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, and rolls.

Yeah, I know. See there are a lot of picky boys in our house and well, they do not like green things. Well honestly the only vegetable they will eat are tomatoes……in sauce… on a pizza.

Pretty bad right? Well this year we are having brussel sprouts at Thanksgiving! And not just plain old steamed Brussel sprouts that everyone tries to feed their dog under the table, but not even their dog will eat them. Nope, we will be having roasted brussel sprouts doused with a cranberry and balsamic vinegar glaze!

OMG these are the best Brussel sprouts I have ever tasted. Seriously, this glaze is to die for and is chuck full of antioxidants. It is the perfect healthy side to go with all those delicious turkey, buttered mashed potatoes, and gravy! I mean come on we need something to balance out that meal!
