These Brussels sprouts are easy enough to make on a weeknight but fancy enough to serve at a dinner party. Instead of roasting the sprouts with balsamic vinegar (which would make them soggy and mushy) we make a simple balsamic glaze to garnish them with. Not only does it look beautiful, but it allows the sprouts to crisp up in the oven.
