Never liked them . . .
. . . Never tried them.
How good can they really be? They're 'brussel sprouts.'
Just say they word -- doesn't even sound like you'd want to eat one!
Cut stem from sprout and remove large, outer leafy green parts.
I decided, though, that it was time to face my fear and try them. If I was going to try them, I was going to have to cook them in a way that would give ALL the help they needed to taste tolerable. That meant I couldn't boil or steam these beauties. I'd have to roast them to bring out their 'naturally sweet' flavor!
Drizzle the sprouts with a bit of olive oil and season with coarse sea
salt and coarse ground pepper. Toss to coat well.
When the kids walked in -- they both said, "what smells good?" Guess what I said! "Brussel Sprouts!"
YEAH! We were off on the right foot!
Guess what the Mr. said when he walked in and saw them. "Are we really having those?"
I think it's a bad childhood memory!
Actually, we were kind of excited to try to new veggie.
We ALL (even the Mr.) like the Brussel Sprouts! They were really yummy!
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-40 minutes, depending on the amount
of sprouts you're cooking. You want the veggie to be roasted on the
outside and fork tender. Stir the sprouts several times during the
