A little drama goes a long way! This is a wonderful way to prepare beets. I just rubbed butter all over the beets, wraped them up in tinfoil, and baked away! The skins slip right off and the beets are juicy and bright. I put each one (I got the big ones) in a little berry bowl of its own on a bed of shredded sauteed cabbage, cut them from the top down so they fell open like a flower, added a dab of sour cream to the centers, and the kids devoured them! This was the first time I had ever used fresh beets, now that I've found how simple it is they will be used more often, whenever they are fresh in my grocery. Yum! Simple, straightforward, fresh and so georgeous... thanks for the tips, BCG!
My FAVORITE way to bake beets. I think these are delicious without butter or sour cream.
This is so easy. It takes a long time to cook so I get the small beets. After baking, I sliced them up and put sour cream on them. It was great.
