Brussel Sprouts Are Good!

I know what you're thinking.  Brussel sprouts good?  No way.  I thought the same thing when my husband came home with a big bag of them.  I mean it's bad enough I have to eat healthy stuff I like all the time (on 17 Day Diet) and now I'm going to eat brussel sprouts.  That's just great.  Turns out they are great.  Now I'm not saying they are like eating a big 'ol piece of chocolate cake but they are good.  Another bonus is they are easy.  All I did was cut off the end of each brussel sprout (kind of like the end of a head of lettuce), cut them in half and toss with olive oil, salt and pepper.  Now I hate when I read a recipe online and they don't give you the exact amount of the ingredient to add and expect me to figure this out.  However, I'm doing the same thing right now.  It depends on how many you are roasting.  I put in enough olive oil to coat each brussel sprout.  I'm not a big fan of pepper but if you are add a bunch.  I feel they need extra salt to taste good but always start with a little and add more after they are done. 
Aren't they pretty?

Put all those lovely sprouts on a baking pan and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. 

They are even better reheated the next day.  So before you diss the brussel sprout give it a try!

    I actually LIKE brussel sprouts. Until now I've only ever steamed them and threw on some butter and salt. I am going to try this tonight. Love having a new idea for them! See....I actually do read your blog! :-)
