For my second new thing of 2012 I decided to go with Brussels sprouts. I know that lots of people have horrible memories of these little green nuggets of goodness, but they were not a staple in the Morris household growing up.
Lucky me, right? Well have you ever had Hot Dogs Delicious or Whipped Potato Casserole?
For my first attempt at Brussels sprouts I decided to go with roasting. I cut them in half and marinated them in a little balsamic vinegar, peanut oil and salt and pepper. I then roasted them with my sweet potatoes and mushrooms.
I believe this could be the worst picture ever taken.
I made a balsamic reduction to go with them. A little white and brown sugar reduced with balsamic vinegar until it’s the consistency of syrup.
In all they were not bad. I think I’ll have to play around with them a bit before I find the best way to make them. Maybe someone else in my house will want to try them too.
