Maple Chipotle Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts

At my house, we are of the opinion that a good side dish can make or break a meal. A piece of meat or fish isn’t anything special until you add a delicious side dish and then you’ve got a meal worth talking about.

These Maple Chipotle Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts are the kind of vegetable side dish that has everyone asking for seconds!

Creating this recipe for Maple Chipotle Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Brussels Sprouts

Roasted vegetables are one of my most favorite types of side dishes. This time of year, there are so many good roasting vegetables to choose from too!

After buying a great big bag of Sweet Potatoes last week, we are adding sweet potatoes to everything. They are healthy, but because they are so naturally sweet, my kids love them too.

Pairing the Brussels Sprouts with delicious Sweet Potatoes ensures that the kids end up eating more veggies.

To make these roasted veggies stand out, I coated them in a blend of butter, maple syrup and ground chipotle pepper.

After roasting, both the sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts are crispy on the outside, tender on the inside and sweet spicy all over. So tasty!

We’ve been enjoying this side dish at dinner regularly  since the weather turned cold here a few weeks ago. It’s simple enough for weeknight dinners, but delicious enough to show up with it at Thanksgiving. I added this to our Thanksgiving dinner lineup the first time I made it – it was that good.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, I can’t believe it’s here already. If you’re still scrambling to pull last minute details together like I am, this easy side dish is something you can pull together without much thought.
