"Oh Brussels Sprouts, Oh Brussels Sprouts"......tra-la-la-la-la-la-la!
SNOW, finally Boise got lots of snow!
We started up the Christmas tunes again and low and behold, we found some brussels sprouts in the garage fridge. We planned to roast them over the holidays and just never got around to it. I'm oh so glad because my guy grilled some chicken breasts and they were a perfect side to Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Bacon, and Apples.
A Pinterest find, this recipe is from Everyday Foods.
Here's the skinny: Preheat to oven 425. Clean and halve 3 to 4 quarts of brussels sprouts and cut 3 slices of bacon into small pieces. Roast the bacon for 10 minutes. Add the brussels sprouts on top of the bacon, sprinkle with coarse salt and fresh ground pepper and roast for 15 minutes. While the sprouts are in the oven, cut and core an apple. Slice it into bite size pieces. Add apples to the sprouts and roast for 10-15 more minutes.
Remove from oven and toss with red-wine vinegar.
Serve warm with lots of love. You may find yourself singing, "Oh Brussels Sprouts"...they are divine!
