Easy Brussels Sprouts For Thanksgiving
Guest post by Barbara, owner of the blog, The Bold Blend. A couple of months ago, I wouldn’t touch Brussels sprouts with a ten foot pole. I remember them from childhood as overcooked and stinky! Luckily, I tried some in a dish at Whole Foods Market recently and found out that they are absolutely delicious! Here’s how I prepared them this evening: Ingredients: 2 pounds of Brussels sprouts 1/2 stick of butter 1/2 teaspoon sea salt 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper Handful of walnuts (add in after roasting) 1 1/2 tablespoons thyme Directions: Preheat oven to 400°F Melt butter in a large cast iron skillet. Add Brussels sprouts, salt, pepper, and thyme to the skillet and toss until combined. Place skillet in oven and roast until sprouts are golden brown and tender inside. It took about 25 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once out of the oven, I tossed in a handful of walnuts (pecans would work as well). They were amazing!
