Maple-Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

If you really want to go nuts with these, toss them with some melted butter. It's not necessary. It's also not a bad thing.

1 lb brussels sprouts
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut off any browned ends of the brussels sprouts and remove any yellowed leaves. Slice each of the sprouts in half. Arrange on a baking sheet. In a small bowl combine the olive oil, maple syrup and balsamic vinegar.Drizzle over the sprouts and toss to coat.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper and roast for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the leaves begin to turn brown and crisp. Remove from oven and serve.
