Greek Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Goat Cheese

Pin It PIN IT!

I have created a little ode to brussel sprouts today for y’all, in the spirit of the season and my love for these little cabbages. I completely understand if you never come back and burn me from your reader. Before you do that, just look at how delicious these Greek roasted brussel sprouts with goat cheese look. You may hate poems, but how can you hate a side dish with this much flavor?

Oh darling little sprouts, filled with fiber and Vitamin C,
How anyone could not love you, is completely beyond me

You look like little cabbages, and kind of taste them too
If I had my way everyday, every meal would contain you

Sadly though, to my dismay
My husband hates you, in every single way

He claims you smell like socks, you give him bad gas
You haunt and scare him, and you look and taste like grass

I’ve tried to convert him, gussied you up with cheese and spice
Even with all these add on’s, he’d rater eat mice

Normally this would be upsetting, since I don’t agree
But it only means one delicious thing, more brussel sprouts for me!

No need for applause yet, I’m here till Friday :)

    YES! I love roasted brussels sprouts and have never had them with goat cheese. I happen to have brussels in my fridge right now and am excited to try your recipe with goat cheese from a local cheese shop. Delicious and healthy!!

    This dish is so easy. I LOVE it! And goat cheese is my weaknesses, so this has me drooling. I might even try this with broccoli or other fun vegetables just for the heck of it! Great recipe, as always. :)
