Captain Boyfriend and I were given the most amazing Brussels Sprouts Recipe this weekend. Words failed me. As you can see from the picture below we ate far, far more than was good for us - but I can honestly say it was worth the tummy ache.

Pictured: Maple Glazed Brussels Sprouts, Fried Roots and Cornish Game Hen with Plum and Honey.



You have to try these Brussels Sprouts (seriously - they're like vegetable candy made by unicorns and fed to you on your birthday in the moonlight on a plate made of rose petals):

Blanch Sprouts.
Slice in Half.
In a Pan melt some butter or olive oil (enough to coat your quantity of Sprouts)
And the sprouts and fry for about 5 minutes.
Drizzle about 1/4 cup maple syrup (real, natch) and cook down until it thickens.
Serve and Scarf.

And the Game Hen

Remove innards, replace them with two small plums (hat you've poked with a fork repeatedly)
Loosen skin and slide morsels of butter underneath.
Drizzle liberally with Honey, pop in a roasting pan and cook at 350 until all of the microbes that could kill you are dead, and the skin is golden brown and crispy.
Serve and Scarf.

Please enjoy!

Yuuuum. I loves me some brussels sprouts! I usually just buy the frozen kind with the yummy buttery slightly sweet sauce on 'em, but next time I'm gonna have to try your recipe! > drool <

Those looks so juicy and delicious.  Roasting is one cooking technique I love best.  It doesn't dry out the food and keep its freshness intact. I especially love the aroma that comes in roasting.

When I'm not making crafts, I'm dreaming them up!

Maple glazed brussel sprouts are TO DIE FOR!! There is a restaurant in Detroit that makes FABULOUS ones! I've been wanting to try to make them at home, but haven't had the guts yet! Yours look divine!!
