Caramelized Brussel Sprouts
Until recently, Jeremy said that he didn't like brussel sprouts and now he has announced that we could eat these for dinner every night. This method is simple and fuss-free, but ends up with such delicious results. You can also toss in some bacon or pancetta with these while roasting, as we had in a restaurant in Ohio a few month ago. I follow this exact same method for roasting carrots (peeled and cut into 1" chunks, or whole baby carrots) also, I just increase the cooking time.
-2 lbs brussel sprouts, rinsed, trimmed, sliced in half
-1/4 c olive oil
-3 Tbsp brown sugar or maple syrup
-1 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp pepper
In a medium bowl, stir together oil, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Toss with brussel sprouts. Roast at 400 for 35-45 minutes (or until desired browning has occurred), stirring every 10 minutes as you go.
