Brussels Sprouts Rule

As I was growing up I didn't eat Brussels sprouts. My mother did not make them so I never gave the forbidden veggie a try.

On occasion I tune into cooking shows on T.V. One Saturday I watched a show that offered a recipe for Brussels sprouts. I bought the vegetable that day and to my surprise they have become a favorite of my side dishes (and on occasion main dishes) for dinner.

No joke, my brother is currently attending college and he called me one evening. "Hey, do you have that recipe for those green things you make? I want to make some for my roommates and I." I found out through some prodding that he was referring to sprouts, not all that green I rake in as a Financial Aid Administrator.

Cut fresh (not frozen) Brussels sprouts in half, sprinkle with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Place them in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

That's it. Simple and good.

Did I mention I have a love for cabbage too? I am a sucker for stinky vegetables.
