After a couple missteps, I feel like we have finally mastered the brussel sprout. I'll admit, I never ever thought I would like these little cabbages. And my husband pretty much loathes them as well. But I kept seeing appetizing pictures crop up on Pinterest, so I was inspired to try them again.
Our first batch was not so good...we didn't roast them long enough and they turned out dense and slightly soggy. Not appetizing in the least. We found the key is to dress them in olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper and then roast the crap out of them in an oven at 400 degrees for 30-45 minutes. They should be charred and crispy. Like, really crispy. That's the key.
From there, you can choose a variety of different ways to dress them. Add in some cloves of garlic, throw in a dash of balsamic vinegar, or sprinkle in some pine nuts. The options are endless.
So tell me, do you enjoy brussel sprouts? And if so, how do you prepare them?!
PS...I added a little "Schue Love" button to the sidebar...feel free to grab it!
