Pears lend their sweetness to earthy Brussels sprouts in this quick essence-of-fall side dish. Serve with roast turkey or baked ham.
This is a good dish. I usually add pine nuts to the roast about 10 minutes in. A little prosciutto is also a good add in from the start so it crisps up.
The pears do soften in the oven. I find that firm, but ripe, pears take the heat best, softening but not turning mushy.
I could see dried figs working well in this recipe, too, maybe with a little sage.
Delicious! I read the reviews and only cooked for 20 min. Perfect! Perfect taste for us. I only had 1/2 the brussel sprouts needed but they soaked up all the sauce. My family loved them and my son ate them...
The brussels sprouts were mush cooking for 25 min, and the pears didn't add enough. Never making again!
Super easy, quick to prepare. To my taste a bit too sweet. As the pear is sweet I would refrain from adding 1 tsp of maple sirup. Definitely a keeper.
