Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Craisins, Walnuts, and Gorgonzola Cheese

Roasted Brussels Sprouts Dish

Roasted Brussels Sprouts Dish

When I find a dish that I truly love at a restaurant, I can't resist trying to replicate it at home. It's a favorite game that my husband and I play together, and it expands our arsenal of recipes at home.

This past summer, I was at the Angry Minnow Brew Pub and Restaurant in Hayward, Wisconsin and came across this Brussels sprouts dish. It made my mouth water for months afterward just to think about it. I knew I had to have it again, and because the restaurant's menu changes with the seasons, I was going to need to figure out the recipe to ensure I could eat this dish again and again.

I love this dish with fresh Brussels sprouts, right off the stalk, from my local produce farmer, but frozen works well too in a pinch. Eat it as a full meal just for yourself, or it also works great as a quick, easy, nutritious and colorful side dish. I hope you love it as much as I do!

With your recipe maybe I could cook a tasty brussels sprouts dish, as I've failed in the past, but when my daughter cooks them they are the highlight of the meal.

Even though I'm not a huge Brussels sprouts fan, these sound fabulous! You might make a convert out of me yet. ;) Best of luck in the November Food Club Quest! :)
