Double Dose of Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Double Dose of Roasted Brussel Sprouts So there’s a girl in the kitchen with her handsome boyfriend trying to decide what to make for dinner… Said girl has two bags of Brussel Sprouts in the fridge that found their way into her basket at the farmers market… Said boy is pretty sure he doesn’t like Brussel Sprouts because they are “bitter”… Said boy has also never had this amazing veggie roasted before…

Said girl now has a mission: get handsome boy to enjoy Brussel Sprouts!

And so this is how it went. I LOVE Brussel Sprouts (not sure why my computer insists I capitalize those words but I kinda like it so we are gunna stick with it)! My favorite is what they get just past caramelized when you are roasting them and start to burn. The little crunchy parts are so sweet and the best part is that people who don’t know this awesome secret always pick around the burnt parts = more for me! Thank you very much!Roasted Brussel Sprouts

I figured my odds were better to get this handsome man of mine to enjoy this new food if I tried two different recipes. *let me clarify that he is amazing about trying foods I make even if he is pretty sure he won’t like them. he always gives them three chances and hey if he doesn’t like them after that then who am I to fault him!? I don’t eat half the foods he eats so to each their own!*

I didn’t take too many pics of the process of making these… Mostly cause the process is super super easy and really only has three steps: cut, mix, roast!

Check out both of the awesome recipes:
