Honey Dijon Brussels Sprouts

Honey Dijon Brussels Sprouts are simple, tangy, a bit spicy, and incredibly flavorful – an ideal combination of flavors perfect for brussels sprouts

Honey Dijon Brussels Sprouts – one of the best brussels sprouts recipes ever! And incredibly easy. My son actually introduced me to the idea of putting honey dijon mustard on brussels sprouts (and he only started cooking this year). Then I just improved upon it with the balsamic vinegar. Fabulous! Funny, years ago I didn’t particularly like brussels sprouts and now I love them.

Basically, we have a sauce that is just equal parts honey dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar, and mild diced green chiles. I prepare the brussels sprouts my favorite way (boil till soft, then sautee in butter or olive oil till lightly browned), pour the sauce on and cook another couple minutes. Easy peasy! Don’t want any spicy heat? Leave the green chiles out – it’s still awesome! You also might like a lot of sauce or just a little, so adjust how much sauce you use to taste.

This is really one of my favorites and I’ll be making it over and over. Hope you enjoy it!
