    Just thought I would add this recipe, since I think this is the BEST way to enjoy Brussel Sprouts!! [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Wash and trim the sprouts. With a knife, mark an X in the stem end. Put them in a covered microwavable bowl and cook them on "high" for about 3 minutes (til they are steaming and partially cooked). Then put the sprouts on a roasting pan (I lined mine with the new non-stick aluminum foil and it worked wonderfully! ) and spritz the sprouts and pan with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt. Put into a preheated 425 degree oven for 20 minutes. Shake the pan about every five minutes.

    These will get a "golden brown" in places, and the high temperature will bring out natural sugars in the brussel sprouts! Hope you like them!! (And Charski: If I forgot to add any "helpful hints" please add yours!) [img]graemlins/wave.gif[/img] Carol

    My husband loves brussel sprouts and I'm still "iffy" with them - but this might make them more tasty! Thank you for posting this recipe.

    If I remember correctly, I think Charski's husband didn't like brussel sprouts either...until he tried them roasted!!

    It's worth a try! And your DH might really like them prepared this way, too! [img]graemlins/wave.gif[/img] Carol

    Hey! A BS thread!

    Carol is correct - my DH wouldn't TOUCH a Brussels sprout with a 10 foot fork until I started oven roasting them.

    When I made them last weekend, I didn't bother with the "X" in the bottom, I just whacked 'em in half lengthwise and proceeded from there, just as Carol posted. I use Pam Garlic Butter spray and a sprinkle of garlic salt on mine (hey, I LIKE garlic!) and they are SO GOOD - even DH can't get enough!

    Of course I haven't met a veggie YET that wasn't really good oven-roasted in this fashion - my all time fave is fresh green beans - I can't stop eating them! Good thing they're 0 points....

    Char, do you oven roast green beans too? This sounds like a great idea, I also love green beans!!

    Thanks!

    You bet, Cheree! I just cut off the ends and put them in a single layer on a baking sheet (11x18 is my favorite size) which has been sprayed with Olive Oil flavored Pam. Spray the beans with Pam too, then sprinkle with garlic salt and put into a 400 to 450* oven (depending on what else you might be cooking - they roast fine anywhere between 400 and 450) and let them go til they are JUST browning. They are SO good - if you love green beans, you gotta try this! Also great with eggplant, any color bell peppers, any kind of mushroom, even broccoli and cauliflower are good oven-roasted.
