"An amazingly simple recipe for brussels sprouts -- for people that don't like brussels sprouts!"
Serving Size: 1 (93 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"Very Good. I simply sprayed mine with olive oil cooking spray and added a bit of sea salt. They came out perfect."
"3 TB would be waaay too much salt. I used just under 1TB so I am wondering if 3 tsp was meant instead? Also used about 1/4 cup of oil."
"I'm sorry to give this a bad review, but we had to throw these away because they were way to salty. When I read the recipe I thought it sounded like a lot of salt used it anyhow. Ewww!"
"I love roasted veggies. These are simple yet wonderful. I had 1.5 lbs of brussels but I could not bring myself to use 1/2 cup of olive oil on these precious little sprouts, so I only used 1/4 cup. I also added garlic. They browned just right. Mmmmmm! Thanx for sharing!"
"How wild, these tasted kind of popcorn-esque to me! I cooked them for the full 45 minutes, and they started to smell a bit burnt to me towards the end of cooking, but they were just fine once they were done. I had way too many sprouts (I mistakenly bought two bags instead of one), so I just tossed them all in. I knew that doubling the recipe outright would be too much oil and salt, but I did increase the oil to 3/4 cup, and I added 1 more teaspoon of salt. In hindsight, I probably should have not increased the oil and salt at all, even though I doubled the sprouts, but that was my own fault. They still tasted great with the added salt and oil, I just think that the extra wasn't necessary. I love roasted vegetables of all sorts, and this was no exception. We'll definitely be having these again, thanks for posting!"
"Love this recipe. I have used fresh and frozen, having better results using fresh. The trouble with frozen is that with the excess moisture you end up "steaming" the sprouts as much as roasting them. If using frozen, I recommend thawing them first and allowing them to drain a bit.<br/><br/>As far as the amount of salt goes, I usually just grind the salt over the sheet of sprouts until it seems like enough, and I am certain that I use FAR less than 3 tablespoons. Probably more like 1 tsp. I didn't knock my rating down a star for it, though, because "Bacon" does suggest adjusting the salt according to taste. I know 3T would be WAY too much for my taste (and I like things salty).<br/><br/>Like other reviewers, I also add freshly ground black or white pepper and next time I am going to try Cynnalyn's idea to add cayenne. Sounds yum!"
"Yum! Never thought I could use frozen sprouts, so this has changed how we eat sprouts, and was perfect! I did heat the baking pan first for 10 minutes, and cut roasting time down to 30. Also added some cayenne powder. Salt amount was perfect - sounds like others might be adding regular table salt (which would be too much). Stick with chunky kosher salt and it's perfect."
"I've used this method for the last year. The only difference for me is I use fresh sprouts and add some chili powder and pepper. Just about the only way we eat sprouts lately. Yummy!!!"
