Brussels Sprouts Thanksgiving Side Dish

One Of My Favorite Thanksgiving Side Dish Recipes 

I mean, why not greet you with a big plate of this right in your face a day before Thanksgiving?

BTW, Happy Thanksgiving Eve, you guys!! Are you getting ready for tomorrow? Are you traveling to grandma’s house? Are you even reading?! 😉

I’m actually in the middle of prepping this Slow Cooker Honey-Mustard Glazed Ham, an overnight breakfast casserole, AND trimming the brussels sprouts. Needless to say, I’m all kinds of bizzay! I even have a Pumpkin Pie all ready to go.

…kinda feel like my name should be Betty Crocker.

Brussels Sprouts Side Dish For Thanksgiving

So, you know what happened this past Sunday? My Mom called, and she called to pick a bone with me. The lady was shaken by the fact that I posted a “Thanksgiving Leftovers” recipe BEFORE posting a new recipe for a Thanksgiving side dish with Brussels Sprouts. She was literally disturbed by this offense of mine. OOOPS!

But you know what’s more important here? My Mom follows my blog! High-Five, Rada!

Anywho. I told her to sit down, play some Adele, and wait until Wednesday.

You’ll Love The Creamy Dijon Sauce On These Brussels Sprouts 

M’kay, so here’s the thing. Brussels Sprouts tossed in Creamy Dijon Sauce is basically the best thing ever. I’ve made it three times in the last two weeks, and all just for one more lick of that sauce. Spoonfuls. Of. Dijon. Creaminess.

I don’t really know how to explain it, but this is like a really delicious flavor combo we have going on upinhurr. This idea came about as I was trying to think of a sauce that I could serve with boiled brussels sprouts. I’m always roasting the b-sprouts, so we needed a change, you know?

Going along with all of that, I was quickly reminded of how awesome this Garlic Dijon Vinaigrette was, and then my brain jumped right back around to these little guys and a new favorite side dish was born.

Are These Brussels Spouts Easy To Cook?

I’m betting that most of you are already prepared for tomorrow, and that your menus are done, however, this deliciousness only takes minutes. In fact, you can have this done in like, 20 minutes, including prep time. We’re just going to throw the brussels sprouts in for a swim in boiling water while we prepare the sauce that they will be tossed in thereafter. A sprinkle of lemon zest and oregano is optional, but I say it’s a must.
