Do again: Yes, with some tweaking
I got the recipe from here: roasted brussel sprouts (allrecipes.com JAQATAC). Many people on the site seemed to like it. I raised the oven temp and reduced cooking time like some of the site's commenter's suggested, but I wish I had followed the recipe instead.
Preheat 400 degrees (I did 425)
1 1/2 pounds of Brussels sprouts
3 T Olive oil
1 tsp Kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
|4 ingredients - that's it! I've never used kosher salt before.|
I really liked it. I finely ground the pepper so my kids
wouldn't bite into pepper chunks.
|After trimming -- aren't they cute.|
Put sprouts in bowl, stir to coat:
Pour onto baking sheet:
Roast for 30-45 min., shake pan every 5 min.
(I roasted for 12 minutes -- reducing temp to 400
after 10 min.) They were smoking.
|Yum! (I liked them, anyway).|
5 y.o. - Tried but didn't like it. I then gave him just the leaf; he didn't like the stem.
9 y.o. - Did not like it (and looked at me with a "sorry, mom" expression). She said the outer leaves were okay.
10 y.o. - Ate it! Would eat it again! He said he rated it a 3 out of 5 stars.
Hubby - "It's an acquired taste." He would eat it again for variety and eat it happily knowing how good it is for him, but it isn't something he would request.
I liked it, especially the outer layers. The inside was a little bitter (the smallest ones weren't bitter to me).
1#, cut in half to coat inside as well. I would have to stir instead of shake because they won't roll.
follow recipe exactly -- lower temp and cook longer --maybe cooking it longer will make the inside less bitter
