Brussel Sprouts

As a child I thought brussel sprouts were nasty. I've been passing by the big bag of brussel sprouts at Costco for a few weeks now but yesterday my friend, Jen, told me she had fixed them for her family and they loved them.  So today I bought that bag and roasted them up and they were wonderful! Ike loved them. I was rather shocked that I liked them too.

The outside is toasty and crisp and the inside has a wonderful texture and reminded us of artichoke hearts. The roasting brings out the sweetness in the sprouts.
I got this picture off the net - We ate ours so fast that there wasn't a chance to take a picture!

Roasted Brussel Sprouts
  • Enough sprouts to loosely cover the bottom of a 9x13 pan
  • Olive oil (I used 1 Tablespoon but you might like more)
  • salt and pepper to taste
Mix together until sprouts are lightly coated with oil. Roast in 400 degree oven for 40 minutes or so, until tender.

I served this with spaghetti squash topped with egg plant and classico tomato sauce. Roland said it was a great dinner.

I'm totally hooked on brussels sprouts. I usually saute but I did them in the oven last time and they were equally good. I even eat them cold.

I like it when you write about food. It gives me ideas. The list you made for yourself at the begnning of the week was helpful also. Thanks.
