Elevate your roasted brussels sprouts with this incredible Brussels Sprouts Smash with Orange Juice Glaze. The perfect combination of savory, sweet and acidic brings this super food to its full potential to round out any meal.
We are serving them up with our Thanksgiving Feast, and we’ve been known to double (or even triple) this recipe to ensure that everyone has the chance to enjoy seconds.
We had a “Friendsgiving” recently to try out some new recipes, and it served as a great excuse to enjoy great food with great friends before the craziness of the holidays hit.
Even better – the weather was nice enough to dine outside by the fire.
How to Make Brussels Sprouts Smash with Orange Juice Glaze
Not only is this recipe simple to make, it is absolutely delicious. And I love how it adds a bit of green to the table.
If you have guests (or kids!) who aren’t fans of brussels sprouts, have them try this recipe. My guess is that they will completely change their tune when it comes to brussels sprouts (as long as they’re made with this orange juice glaze)!
To get started, mix two pounds of whole brussels sprouts with 1/4 cup of olive oil. Spread them onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet and season with salt and pepper.
Roast in a preheated 475° F oven for 10-12 minutes.
While the brussels sprouts are roasting prepare the glaze.
In a small saucepan, mix 1/4 cup maple syrup with 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar and 1/4 cup of Florida’s Natural® Brand Orange Juice.
Heat over medium heat until heated through, but don’t bring to a simmer. Remove from heat, and stir in four tablespoons of cold, cubed butter pieces.
Remove the brussels sprouts from the oven, and use a small glass to smash each brussels sprout.
Top with the orange juice glaze and 1/4 cup shaved parmesan cheese. Bake for another five minutes or until cheese is melted and slightly browned.
Serve and enjoy!

BRUSSELS SPROUTS SMASH WITH ORANGE JUICE GLAZE DOES NOT HAVE TO BE RESERVED FOR YOUR HOLIDAY TABLE

I also highly suggest not saving it for a special occasion.
It’s simple enough to serve with any weeknight meal and most likely your family will be begging for it anyway.
