Do you hate Brussels sprouts? Seems like a lot of people say that but I guarantee they’d change their tune if they had Brussels sprout prepared this way…and yes, dogs love them.
In keeping with my S.O.M.P. cooking style this recipe takes about no time to prepare…the trick is to use frozen sprouts…I hear you out there…frozen sprouts are yucky…they always come out mushy and cabbagey and no one likes them…well I’m going teach you the trick to using frozen sprouts…DO NOT DEFROST THEM!
When you’re in need of a last minute side dish that won’t add to your stress level give this recipe a try.
First, preheat your oven to 400*. Then dump (see S.O.M.P.) the FROZEN sprouts into a oven-safe pan…Notice the icy look to these sprouts
Next, chop and fry up some bacon…this is the amount of bacon I used for the amount of sprouts in the above photo
When the bacon is about half cooked, mix it into the sprouts and put the pan in the oven…Yippee – prep work is done! Leave them in the oven till you see a light brown color to the top of the sprouts…if I remember I give them a stir while they’re cooking, but if you forget, no worries…When you see that nice roasted color take them out of the oven and put in a nice serving bowl. I find it takes about 45″ to get the color that I like.
I serve mine with a splash of balsamic vinegar. Gizmo gets his plain and he loves them.
Please mom, can I have another?
