This dish takes a classic Southern vegetable and kicks it up a few notches. Roasting the Brussel sprouts and yams in the oven brings out an earthy, nutty flavor. The variety of spices and sweetness from the brown sugar are a perfect complement to the Uncaged Proprietary Red Blend. And one of the great things about this recipe is that it can be made ahead of time, and reheated in the oven in no time.
