It is November 1st and I couldn’t be more excited!

Yes, I am a die-hard lover of Halloween and, when I am healthy and able to, I decorate the crap out of my house and yard.

But, when the clock strikes midnight on October 31st, I am all about Christmas! Like I wanna put my Christmas tree up nowwwwwww kind of excited!

When my husband and I got together I had a prelit artificial Christmas tree that I would drag out as soon as the Halloween decorations were boxed back up. I would take my time decorating it, but it went up ASAP!

It drove him crazy!

Then the tree died. And he suggested we start buying real Christmas trees instead of buying another artificial tree.

At first, I loved the idea because I love the smell of evergreen filling my house. But then I realized it was his way of keeping me from putting a tree up until the beginning of December.

Sneaky sneaky man!

This Keto Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash recipe is something else that I want the day after Halloween. When I make this it is my way of saying that the holiday season is officially upon us.

I then proceed to make it at least once a month until after the first of the year, or later, it is THAT dang good!

It is funny that it took me going low carb to discover how much I really enjoy Brussels sprouts. I honestly hated them as a kid, but that was because my Mom would boil or steam them and to be honest they smell like ummmm ya if you cook them that way.

Once I discovered roasting them? Or well, rosting any veggie actually. That was when my love began to blossom.

Then you add in butternut squash, or acorn, or delicata, or pumpkin really, topped with the maple balsamic glaze and roasted walnuts?

Ya, you really can’t go wrong with this recipe gang. Just make it and see for yourself OK?

FAQS ABOUT KETO MAPLE ROASTED BRUSSELS SPROUTS AND BUTTERNUT SQUASH

Is there another vegetable that I can use instead of Brussels sprouts?

If you are not a fan of Brussels sprouts you could try chopped cabbage or broccoli florrets. The cooking time would vary depending on the substitute you use.

What could I use in place of the butternut squash?

Any other winter squash would work. You could try delicata, acorn, or even pumpkin. Sweet potato would be another good substitute if you are not worried about carbs.

Is there another sweetener I could use in place of the maple syrup?

Yes, this keto honey is really good in this recipe as well. Maple just gives it that fall flavor in my mind.

Last thoughts about Keto Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash

Brussels sprouts and butternut squash have both been common on my holiday table. They are both a very delicious and welcoming side to me, and the rest of my family.

Then I combined them and served this dish and the whole family went crazy. Questions about why it took me so long to do it were asked. I have no idea, but I will always make them like this from now on, that is for sure!

I will say, don’t limit yourself to only serving this recipe for Thanksgiving or Christmas. I serve it all season long because it is just too dang good to only have once a year!

This dish only takes about 10 to 15 minutes of active time to make. The rest of the time is spent roasting in the oven and creating all of those delicious flavors.

Roasting is really the magical thing when it comes to cooking veggies. It enhances the flavors in vegetables and creates the best textures. The vegetables are crisp on the edges, yet soft and tender on the inside.

My mouth is watering just thinking about this recipe!
