Best Brussels Sprouts Recipe With Balsamic, Parmesan & Pine Nuts

I love that brussels sprouts are now a popular, common vegetable to eat at home and order in restaurants. When I was a kid, my mom cooked brussels sprouts all the time, and my friends just didn't understand how I could eat them. It was kind of a secret for me that I loved those "little cabbages."

My mom simply boiled her brussels sprouts and added butter, salt and black pepper. While those are simple and delicious, I am always looking for new brussels sprouts recipes. This roasted brussels sprouts recipe is one of my new favorites. All you need is brussels sprouts, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, pine nuts and grated Parmesan cheese. In about 30 minutes you'll have a side dish you won't want to stop eating.

The pine nuts add a slight crunch to the soft, but crispy, brussels sprouts while the balsamic adds sweetness and the Parmesan adds saltiness. The perfect combination! Serve these baked brussels sprouts as a side with chicken, beef, pork or your favorite protein.
