Can Brussels Sprouts Be Fun!?


I know, I know, "Brussels Sprouts" does not conjure up very fond memories. It might actually bring back some traumatizing childhood memories of your parents forcing you to eat them. Hopefully we can change all that.

Boiling has been done, so let's try toasting them.

What you'll need:
-1.5 lbs of Brussels Sprouts
-3 tablespoons of Olive Oil
-1/2 teaspon of Salt (Kosher Salt)
-1/2 teaspoons of Ground Black Pepper

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.

Peel off any yellow leaves, then trim and wash the Brussels Sprouts. Halve sprouts for faster cooking and presentation. Combine the above items in a zip-lock gallon bag and shake till even coverage. Spread over aluminum foiled baking sheet and toast for 15-20 minutes. Check every 7 minutes and shake sheet to brown evenly. Remove when browned to your desire and serve immediately.

Hopefully this recipe will change your mind about our not so favored little green friends.
