Hey TKW Family! Have I got a great appetizer recipe for you today that is light, healthy and super delicious! Plus these Roasted Brussels Sprouts Skewers with Balsamic Reduction Glaze are perfect for your Football food table, upcoming Halloween party or any holiday party. I love this time of year here in Pittsburgh. The trees are changing from green to bright hues of orange, red and yellow. Halloween is right around the corner and Football Sundays are in full swing. We have days that you may need a long-sleeved shirt and hoodies in the evening. It’s about being indoors and gatherings inside.
Fall to me means winter fruits and veggies, comfort foods and the holidays. Though you can get Brussels Sprouts all year long somehow I attribute them to Fall/Winter. Now full disclosure I hated Brussels Sprouts growing up. You see Mom only made them for Thanksgiving and Christmas. And well, how do I say this politely? Um… Mom’s were horrible. Sorry Mom I love you but Brussels Sprouts were not your forte. You see she’d buy the frozen bag, pop them in boiling water, allow them to boil forever until they turned to mush. Then when they were water-logged and mushy, she’d pretty much bathe them in a vat of butter. Yeah…. not good.
Well a few years ago I decided to try fresh sprouts… One simple roasted sprouts recipe and I was hooked. So today, that’s what I’m sharing with you. Now it all starts with fresh sprouts. And thanks to the incredible Daisey Fresh filters my sprouts stay fresher longer. No longer do I have to worry about soggy, limp veggies. Nope! These 100% natural and organic filters save the day and save my wallet! I no longer have to throw away veggies and fruits because I “forgot” about them or there’s too much humidity in my drawer.
All you have to do is follow some basic guidelines with these Daisey Fresh filters and you can extend the life of your fresh fruits and veggies up to 2-3 times longer!
- Keep ’em separated. Simply put, don’t store your fruits and veggies in the same drawer. The reason being is that fruits that emit high levels of ethylene (the agent that causes them to ripen) can prematurely ripen and spoil any surrounding vegetables in the same drawer.
- Order the Daisey Fresh Filter kit. The Kit includes two silicone filter holders, two Daisey Fresh Eco filters and a two sided card with instructions & suggestions.
- In each drawer in your fridge, place a Daisey Fresh holder with filter (be sure to change the filters every 30 days)!
- Never store your fruits or veggies in closed plastic bags. It’s best to let them breathe. By allowing them to breathe, you’re allowing the Daisey Fresh filters work their magic!
This recipe is pretty much 4 ingredients (well minus oil/salt). It’s just sprouts, prosciutto, cheese and the balsamic glaze. For me when I make my balsamic glaze I add honey as I just don’t quite like that bitter tang reduced balsamic vinegar has. However, if you like that bite reduced balsamic vinegar has you can omit the honey. This recipe is one that pretty versatile. What I mean by this is you can eat them warm, room temperature or cold. How do I know? I mean I have to do research when I create recipes – I mean I “forced” myself to make this recipe a few times and inhale…er eat them, through all phases. LOL
Need another reason why you need this recipe in your life? It’s one of the best recipes you can make and take. Do you have a standing game night with the family or friends? Serve this! Going to a church bazaar and need to take a dish? Voila! This is your dish but I will warn you, these will go fast so make sure you double the batch. Wait who am I kidding? Make a triple batch – one for folks to eat, another batch to refill the platter that gobbled up and one batch for you to keep all for yourself.
Now that I’ve tempted you enough (okay fine… full disclosure, my stomach’s growling and I have a batch of these in the fridge calling out my name), you need to head over to the Daisey Fresh blog for the recipe and even more mouth watering pictures!
