How to Roast Brussel Sprouts on the Stalk




I told my daughter a secret the other day while reciting Green Eggs and Ham from memory.


Ready?


I thought I HATED brussel sprouts.


Turns out...


I had never had them!


Once I started making them, courtesy of my friend Adrienne bringing them to Thanksgiving a few years back, I'm totally in love. So when I saw them being sold on the stalk at Trader Joe's, I knew I had to try them.

                        

How to Roast Brussel Sprouts on the Stalk:


First, rinse them really well.



Pat dry, and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil.



Roast at 400 for about 45 minutes, turning every 15 minutes.



When it's almost done, pour maple syrup over the top! Then keep roasting for another 5 minutes.

                       

To serve, place the stalk on a platter, and sprinkle something tart over it, dried cranberries or cherries, ideally it's red so you have some color contrast:)

Hi - I'm fairly new to your blog, and I really enjoy it! I was wondering what the orange baking sheet is that you lay over your metal pan....is it used in place of aluminum foil? Are there advantages (other than environmental) to using it?

Thanks!

My kids are always begging me to make Brussel Sprouts. (They're a bit strange, I know...) I usually tell them to have their Vegetarian-Berkeley-living-brussel-sprout-eating uncle to make them. But this? This I might need to try....
