I think everyone has a certain comfort food and roasted vegetables happen to be mine. Brussel sprouts are a great vegetable to play around with. They're so versatile that you can add spicy or sweet and they turn out delish. This recipe is one of my favorite sides and I probably make them twice a week. The syrup has its way of caramelizing the vegetables to that perfect crispiness. When I need a little bit of spice in my life, I'll add a little sriracha to the mix as well.
Heat the oven to 400 degrees. To make sure these bad boys are crispy, I cook them on the stove for about 5 minutes (or until they are brown) before putting them in the oven. Add in the olive oil, then the brussel sprouts and potatoes and heat them up for 2-3 minutes. After they are turning brown, add the rosemary and sage leaves. Once they are cooked, turn off the stove and toss with the maple syrup. Put in the oven for 35-40 minutes or when they are browned and crispy.
