Roasted Pear and Cranberry Brussels Sprouts Recipe

What are you guys making for Christmas dinner? Do you make ham, lasagna, tamales, turkey or something completely different from the traditional Christmas meal? I need ideas because I am hosting dinner for my family this year. My dad loves ham so we might have to go that route, but I am not a ham fan so if we do, I am going to make tons of fun sides, including Roasted Pear and Cranberry Brussels Sprouts. I made these for Thanksgiving and I am still dreaming about them. They were SO good!

The perfect side dish to any fall or holiday meal.

Yield: Serves 4

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
  • 2 pears, cored and cut into 8 wedges each
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 or 4 lemon wedges
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the Brussels sprouts, pears, and onion and toss to coat with the olive oil. Season with a few pinches of slat and pepper.
  3. Place the mixture on the prepared baking sheet in an even layer. Bake until the Brussels sprouts are golden brown and have started to crisp and the pears have caramelized, about 30 minutes, stirring once halfway through cooking.
  4. Squeeze 3 of the lemon wedges over the pan and drizzle with the honey. Add the dried cranberries and toss to combine well. Taste and season with more lemon and salt and pepper, if needed. Serve immediately.
