Hooked On Brussels

Originally I was going to write a Wedding Wednesday update post….until I realized that it’s only Tuesday. So since I’m not talking about weddings or running you get BRUSSELS SPROUTS! Plus I was talking about Brussels Sprouts on twitter today.

I wish I could tell you I was kidding but we go through 3lbs of Brussels sprouts a week. I cook them the same way every time and still am not sick of them. Ryan requests them almost every night. Just don’t tell him how easy they are to make. I still have him convinced that I can cook and not just chop things up and throw them in the oven. Which is pretty much what I do.

Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • lightly spray pan ( I use a rectangular glass pan)
  • rinse the brussels, cut off the ends and if they are big I cut them in half or quarters


  • put them in the pan, lightly coat with some olive oil, salt and pepper
  • cook for 20-30 mins (I usually do close to 30)


  • sprinkle a little balsamic vinegar on top, toss them around so they all feel the love and that’s it.
They really weren't as dark as they look. I was just hovering over them.

You can fancy them up and toss in some bacon, dried cranberries or goat cheese. Sometimes we do all 3 but usually it’s just bacon.

Quick and easy dinner and it looks like I know how to cook. 🙂

  1. Mmmm, Brussels sprouts are indeed delicious. Your recipe sounds a lot healthier than what I’ve done. Fry some bacon, remove the meat, and toss some diced shallot and Brussels sprouts into the bacon grease. Cook the sprouts in the bacon grease until they’re soft, then enjoy. Do whatever you please with the bacon.

  2. you guys have convinced me I need to at least try these magical green veggies before I write them off for life. So I will be adding them to my grocery list for next week . I’m willing to try anything once I suppose!

  3. This made me laugh because I’ve recently gotten hooked on brussels, too. I tried them for the first time in almost 20 years about a month ago and haven’t looked back!! Jay was making fun of me because I ordered them at dinner for the first time ever on Monday. 🙂
