This brussels sprouts dish is so delicious! Pan-seared brussels sprouts and apples, pecans, onions and gorgonzola all dressed in a maple syrup and balsamic glaze.
I darn near ate the whole dish by myself.
If I didn't need to leave my husband some, I would have. Hey, there is no shame in that. This dish is healthy!
Perfect to make for the holidays, switching out the apples for fresh cranberries. Yummy!
