It’s hard not to get excited for mail delivery this time of year. Christmas cards, packages you forgot you ordered from Amazon (oops!) and 7 jars of goodies from Paisley Farm to my doorstep.
Okay, maybe you didn’t get that package, but I did because I was invited to participate in the Paisley Farm Holiday Blogger Recipe Challenge. I accepted, entered this Creamy Brussels Sprouts Soup recipe took first place.

Halloween is over and fall is marching on, which means Thanksgiving will be here before we know it! Are you hosting dinner? Bringing a dish to share? Either way, Caramelized Brussels Sprouts Sweet Potato Medley is your dish.
I know, the name is a mouthful. I struggled with the name because I wanted you know all the really tasty stuff it has in it. There’s more than brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes. Much more.
Brussels sprouts because if you haven’t noticed, are the jam these days. So trendy, so in vogue, so. . . delicious, because that’s the most important thing. They’re no longer that vegetable people make faces upon hearing the name. I’m pretty sure there was once a conspiracy theory about brussels sprouts.
Sweet potatoes, which have also taken on a new-found popularity the last few years both for taste and health benefits are included in this dish and when you caramelize these simple vegetables, magic happens. The flavors practically explode in your mouth and with just a few other ingredients, Caramelized Brussels Sprouts Sweet Potato Medley is your must-have side dish for the holidays.
