Roasted Brussels Sprouts
fresh brussels sprouts with tight green leaves
kosher or sea salt
coarse ground pepper
Rinse brussels. Trim off end of sprout, cut in half and place on top of paper towel in bowl. Allow paper towel to absorb moisture.
Drizzle dry sprouts with olive oil and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and then spread on baking sheet.
Roast in 400 degree oven 30-40 minutes or until sprouts start to brown. Turn with a spatula halfway through roasting to help them roast evenly. Sprouts will be tender on the inside and crispy on the outside.
Yes, you can add chopped bacon or thinly sliced sausage before roasting. Yum.
