Brussels sprouts are delicious when roasted. They should have a few little burned leaves for best flavour.
Used different ingredients. Yum! This is my favourite way to make brussels sprouts. I first had them prepared this way at a restaurant in downtown NYC around the corner from where I lived--absolutely addictive, and when I moved from that neighborhood I came up with my own version similar to this recipe. The only difference is that I sprinkle a few cloves of minced garlic on top as the sprouts roast, which is delicious--the roasted garlic is sweet and compliments the sprouts without overpowering them. Also, I usually parboil the sprouts first (for 2 minutes). This draws out bitterness, and cuts down on roasting time (25 minutes to nicely blackened). - 29 Sep 2008
I was really really surprise about these, I love brussel sprouts and needed a new way to try them. This was the BOMB!!!!. I followed the recipe with the exception of cook time and temp. Also I cooked mine on 190 degrees and for 30 mins until they were dark brown not black, they also reheat very well. Give this one a try. Update!!!! I'm hitting the store tonight for fresh brussels sprouts, This recipe is really ADDICTIVED!!!!. I cook these all the time, this time I decided to use the garlic as others have stated as I really love garlic. Let me say they were still good, but I think much better just following the recipe as stated. I still can't get enough!!!. - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. WOW! My kids HATE brussel sprouts. We've tried everything, but, they hate them. I added 2 cloves of crushed garlic, and when they were done, I went to the store and bought another two pounds and made it againg. AMAZING - 29 Sep 2008
