I bought this big bag of brussel sprouts the other day from BJ’s. (Is it ‘brussel’ or brussels?’ I have no idea!) They were a great price and we haven’t had them in awhile. I also saw an interesting recipe on www.thefrugalette.com for ‘Robust Roasted Brussels Spouts.’ I was intrigued and hopeful.
Last night was the night to try this. I walk around our neighborhood every night with my husband’s co-worker so I usually leave some instructions for my husband, for our dinner. Our oven has been acting weird lately and I should’ve known better than to use the full amount of time for the sprouts. But I didn’t, so when I came home, they were a tad burned. So much so that I decided not to take a picture. To top it all off, my kitchen’s exhaust fan broke too. It’s now duct-taped. (Don’t even ask.) Problems aside, we did eat the brussel sprouts and enjoy them! I also added some garlic to the recipe since my family can’t live without it. I want to try this again and have them turn out properly. Try these for yourself and I hope everyone enjoys them. ;)
Robust Roasted Brussels Sprouts
1.5 pounds sprouts
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil (there was a coupon this week in the paper!)
3/4 teaspoon salt ( I did garlic salt)
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash sprouts and cut off stems. Remove any weird-looking leaves or gross spots. Put the olive oil, salt and pepper in a bowl and throw in the sprouts. Toss and coat. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet (sprayed with non-stick spray) and roast them for 30-40 minutes. You’ll want them to look crispy on the outside, not burned :) Turn them once while roasting so that they cook evenly. Eat!
