Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Did you know that Brussels Sprouts is plural?  But most people are in a hurry and say/write Brussel Spouts, because the double plural sounds weird.  Or at least it does to me, just saying.

So Brussels sprouts look like little mini cabbages and incidentally, are in the cabbage family.  They are chock-full of vitamins A & C and folic acid and I think they taste a lot like broccoli (my favorite vegetable!)

This is the first time I’ve ever made (or eaten) Brussels Sprouts, but I assure you, it won’t be the last.  I decided to treat them very simply and roast them in the oven while I baked a chicken.  By roasting them (and cooking them with another food) it cut down on the cabbage-y smell that can come from cooking Brussels Sprouts.  I’d love to say that my son ate these, unfortunately he was still down with the flu, so there was no way.  However, my husband and I enjoyed them very much.

  1. LOVED Brussels Sprouts as a kid and still love them today! Can't wait to try out this recipe! We recently started roasting broccoli, haven't though to roast the "sprouts". Thanks for sharing this! :)

  2. I am the only one in the house who will eat brussels sprouts and such a shame because they are so good and good for you. Love trying new ways to cook hoping that someday I will find that perfect recipe that will get the family to try. Have roasted them a couple of times now and they are very nice done in the oven.
