I know what you are thinking: she's finally lost it, brussel sprouts? Brussel sprouts...but look at that picture. They don't look that bad do they?
Well I'd like to think that I haven't lost it all, but rather I've taken an ingredient that gets a bad rep and turned it into something I think is pretty darn good (and not to mention incredibly easy!) So come on, let's all get crazy and make brussel sprouts!
- Brussel sprouts (Trader Joe's has a great selection)
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Directions (Cook time - 20 minutes):
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Clean your brussel sprouts then halve down the middle. Add the brussel sprouts to a shallow roasting pan and dizzle with EVOO, then season with salt. Place brussel sprouts face down and put the dish in the oven.
After 10 minutes of cooking lightly toss (at this point your brussel sprouts should be browned on the bottom). Return to the oven and cook for 5 more minutes, then add 1/2 tablespoon of broken up butter and spread over the brussel sprouts. Cook for 5 more minutes and remove from oven.
Trust me, this recipe is a keeper. I have cooked this multiple times in the past week and can't seem to get enough of these little guys!
