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 cranberry sauce and Roasted Pear and Cranberry Brussels Sprouts. I made these for Thanksgiving and I am still dreaming about them. They were SO good!

  • 1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
  • 2 pears cored and cut into 8 wedges each
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion or red 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


  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 salt 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.

  1. hey girl – this looks so yummy! My husband and I are going back home to Arkansas (we live in Oklahoma 3 hours away) to my parents in Northwest Arkansas! And I am bringing ritz cracker candy! Yummy

  2. The oven was full of other yummies for Christmas dinner, so I grilled these on the BBQ–just put the baking sheet on the grill with indirect heat. It was delicious, the Brussels and pears got well caramelized. Thanks so much for the recipe.

  3. We enjoyed this for Christmas dinner. All of the adults loved it!!! The kids are still not sold on brussel sprouts – but someday! Thank you for sharing this recipe!!
