Are you a fan of blue cheese? It pairs well with the maple sweetened brussels sprouts & sweet dried cranberries.

If it’s too strong a flavor for you then substitute some feta cheese instead.

I love the balance & combination of the sweetened dried cranberries and tart fresh ones. Besides they add nice color pop.
