We make these poor, looked down upon veggies in a way that the kids LOVE. Seriously, they gobble them up. It's the first thing that they finish on their plate. Before Lily even touches her chicken or rice, she asks for more Brussels sprouts. I never thought I would say to my kid, " You have to eat more chicken if you want more Brussels sprouts". HA!
Anyway, I chop these little buggers up into quarters, if they are big. Stick them in a pan. Set oven to 350ish degrees.
Drizzle some olive oil on there, then I season with either salt and pepper or Lawry's seasoned salt. I tend to like the Lawry's better. Throw them in the over for about 30-40 minutes but be sure to give them a stir after about 15-20 minutes. Then, they come out looking like this:
Look at those beauties! My husband always says that the crispy leave are like candy.
They are delicious. We have converted so many of our friends that said they hated Brussels sprouts. Give it a try. They aren't too expensive when they are on sale. We got these last week at Market Basket for $1.49lb.
If you have any great Brussels sprouts recipes, let me know, I would love to try something new!
