I grew up eating Brussels Sprouts. My grandmother would hear nothing of my protests. So eventually, they grew on me. Especially when coated with a pound of butter and half a container of salt.
But as I grew older, I began to really appreciate the flavor these little guys can bring to a dish.
Now that I’m eating clean, I wanted to come up with a way to prepare them without the pound of butter or gobs of salt.
I found a recipe for grilled brussels sprouts online, and decided to adapt the recipe for my oven.
In truth, I’m not sure if I really adapted it. More like, subtracted it. I subtracted the grill, the Parmesan cheese, and all of the other ingredients listed as optional in the recipe. I also did not add any pepper. There was no rhyme or reason for this, I just left it out cause I was in the mood to. Feel free to add a whole bottle of pepper is that’s what you like.
So here’s my version of this very simple, very yummy side dish.
