If you had to guess, what would you think the most popular recipe on Almost Properly is?  Never in a million years would I have guessed that it would be a recipe for roasted brussels sprouts.  These honey balsamic brussels sprouts to be  exact.

Want to know something else, guess what the second mod popular recipe has been?  Another roasted brussels sprouts recipe.  These honey dijon brussels sprouts.

So its safe to say that roasted brussels sprouts are having a moment…. or two.

Its so ironic because as a kid I remember my mom serving steamed brussels sprouts with zero seasoning – because thats how my Mom served all steamed vegetables in the 90s – and as with all bland steamed vegetables, I hated them!   For some reason steamed cauli, broccoli, and brussels sprouts were the “it” veg to steam and serve as blandly as possible.  Oh and who could forget, steamed spinach.  If there was ever a most disgusting pile of green mush piled on a plate, I have yet to cross it.

It wasn’t until I discovered the wonders of roasted vegetables in college that things like cooked cauliflower, broccoli, and brussels sprouts regained their appeal.  Not to mention, the other roasted veg I love-love-love (carrots, beets, sweet potato, and asparagus: I’m talking ’bout you!).

But roasted brussels sprouts have won my affection throughout the years.  And based on the stats from the two roasted brussels sprouts recipes on this site and their appearance as a starter on nearly every restaurant menu, everyone else loves roasted sprouts, too!

Not just us vegetable pushing, left-coast hippies like me.  Or at least thats how the hubs would characterize me.  😉

But these honey sriracha roasted brussels sprouts are shave thin and roasted until ultra crispy and caramelized.  A.K.A. amazing and addicting!  Even the most anti-brussels sprouts person should give them a try!!  Its practically spicy vegetable candy.

Honey and sriracha ya’ll!  You in??  I’m in love with these!  The hubs even requests them. If you know his feelings towards vegetables, you know that is really saying something;)

Addicting easy to make holiday party appetizer anyone?  Or a zingy side dish?
