I can hear you all groaning...."bruuuseeelll sppprouuttts, grossss." You might just feel differently about this little veggie after preparing them this way, though. We LOVE them! They are crispy and salty on the outside (like a healthy chip!) and soft and flavorful on the inside. Really, try them just once and you'll know what I'm talking about.
Ingredients: 1.5 pounds brussel sprouts 3 tablespoons olive oil 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon black pepper (the fresher the pepper, the better)
Directions: Preheat oven to 400.
In a large bowl, toss the sprouts with the oil, salt, and pepper. Make sure that all of them get oil on them. Place them on a foil-lined cookie sheet. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until dark and crispy. Shake the pan every 15 minutes or so to evenly cook the sprouts. Upon pulling out of the oven, sprinkle with a little more kosher salt. Serve while hot.
Living in small town Oklahoma, I am married to the sweetest man you will ever meet. We have five young children, so I would now consider myself a professional juggler. I'm a wannabe crafter, cook, baker, and gardener. Some might call me crunchy. I'm okay with it.
