Reviews for Roasted Brussels Sprouts
"Roasting brussel sprouts is the only way to eat them. I omitted the butter and just upped the olive oil . I used kosher salt. T also didn't parboil as that just takes all the nutrients away."
"I have other Brussels Sprout recipes I like better, but this one is the easiest and they taste good."
"This is an easy way to make brussel sprouts and they are delicious!"
"Loved it, two out of four kids loved it and my husband loved it. Instead of boiling them in water, I boiled them in chicken broth and added minced garlic to the pan when I baked it, yummmmm."
"If you've never had brussel sprouts, roasting them like this is the way to go. They tasted awesome.I cut off the ends and cut eat sprout in half and put a notch in the base of each (instead of the X in the whole core). I did NOT parboil them as directed...just put them in a bag with the oil to get them covered and then put them in the pan and covered with sea salt and pepper (used a grinder for both). Roasted them as directed for about 20 minutes until they were beginning to get brown and a little crispy. Everyone tried them and they were really good. I loved them and my 8 year old thought they were 'pretty good'. My youngest didn't like them. My husband who said he had brussel sprouts as a child and hated them admitted this time while he wouldn't ask for them, they were okay...which is super high praise for my picky Pete!"
"IF I make brussel sprouts again, I will probably use this recipe. My husband and I had never had brussel sprouts before tonight, and were a bit leery, but they weren't bad."
"A delicious simple way to prepare brussel sprouts. I added 1/2 tsp minced garlic."
"This is delicious. The sprouts came out perfectly, and my daughter and I loved them. My other daughter managed to eat the two I put on her plate, and my husband refused to try them - but his loss. We will make them again anyway! :)"
"DELICIOUS! My family loved them. My 8 year old son turned his nose up at them and complained about there being 4 (!) on his plate. He wasn't eating those, gross! After being persuaded to just try a bite, he cleaned up the rest of the serving bowl! and complained when they were all gone! Best brussels sprouts ever. If you have ever had brussels sprouts and decided you didn't like them, try them this way. You'll be pleasantly suprised! I had a little less than 2 lbs -maybe a pound and a half."
"Wonderful! Great reviews from a friend I had over for dinner. Need to buy more Brussels Sprouts!"
