Brussel Sprouts

I do not like brussel sprouts.  There, I’ve said it.

My roommates said my face looked like a three olds eating something they didn’t like.  I had never tried brussels sprouts before and with my new food project, I thought they would be a a great addition.  I roasted the brussel sprouts as suggested by my friend Irene.  Even though I did not like the brussel sprouts, my roommates enjoyed them and said they were delicious!  Clearly, it’s me, not the brussel sprouts!

Preheat the oven to 400 °F.  Place brussel sprouts on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper.  Use your hands to toss everything around.  Roast for 15-20 minutes until the outer leaves are crispy and the brussel sprouts are soft.

  1. John keeps saying that he loves brussel sprouts and I have never tried them. So now I am inspired by this post and will be making them soon :)

      Try the brussel sprouts, they are pretty cheap and you won’t know until you try them. Vegetables are a fun food group to try because they are inexpensive and fairly goof-proof. Let me know how everything turns out!

    Lol at least you tried and know what you are not missing out on!

    The reason you had never tried brusssel sprouts before is because I dislike them very much. When I married and moved out of your grandparents home and began cooking, I swore I would never make my family have to eat them. Yours look pretty good though and since my taste buds have changed in the past 30+ years maybe I would try them again..Next time you are home maybe you could make them. I’m sure your brother would eat them.
    Love, Mom
