  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts trimmed and halved
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Toss the halved Brussels sprouts with olive oil, salt, and pepper on a baking sheet.
  • Roast the Brussels sprouts in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until they’re tender and slightly caramelized.
  • While the sprouts are roasting, in a saucepan over medium heat, combine the apple cider and maple syrup. Simmer until it’s reduced by half, creating a thick glaze (about 5-7 minutes).
  • Once reduced, add the butter to the cider reduction and stir until melted and well combined.
  • Remove the Brussels sprouts from the oven and drizzle the cider glaze over the roasted sprouts, ensuring they’re evenly coated.
  • Return the baking sheet to the oven for an additional 5 minutes to let the glaze caramelize slightly.
  • Serve the Cider-Glazed Brussels Sprouts hot, and if desired, garnish with the almonds and a drizzle of additional glaze.
