Just sharing a quick post on some thing I recently experimented with. I never grew up eating brussels sprouts but I always saw on TV that people reacted quite badly to them! The Friends Thanksgiving episode where everyone is late and Monica locks them all out but the only dish they have is the brussels sprouts – classic! Love Friends 🙂
But they seem to have undergone a popularity surge and are popping up everywhere in restaurants and on Pinterest so I decided to try them out on my own. I bought frozen brussels sprouts from Trader Joe’s and did a little cooking.
I tossed them in the butter mixture for a while, then I spread them out on a cookie sheet to go into the oven. I sprinkled togarashi (Japanese chili powder), garlic powder and onion powder on top before putting them in the oven. I don’t remember exactly how long I roasted them for – I checked after 15 and 20 minutes and pulled them out when it looked done.
They were pretty darn delicious! I’ve made them several times since them – using both frozen and fresh brussels sprouts. I noticed that fresh ones take a little longer in the oven and the frozen ones don’t get as crispy but both are still yummy!
