Lemon Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Lemon Roasted Brussels Sprouts

So I think I may have just begun a love affair with brussels sprouts.  I know, weird, but true. I can’t believe it has taken me this long to finally give them a try.  My first try at brussels sprouts was this recipe for Teriyaki Glazed Roasted Brussels Sprouts which is delicious!!  Truly amazing.  I think Lemon Roasted Brussels Sprouts would make the perfect vegetable for your Easter dinner.  I know asparagus is more traditional but these are so good!  I promise!

If you are a non believer when it comes to Brussels Sprouts I just have one thing to say to you – try it!  Seriously, they have a totally bad rap.  Undeserved in my book.  So they may look a little strange the way they grow and they may look like little baby cabbages but when they are prepared the right way they are yummy! I think they are totally cute. In fact I just bought some seeds so I can grow my own  this summer.

For today’s recipe  I cut them in half and then coated them in some olive oil, salt and sugar.

Then place them on a baking sheet and bake them for about 10 minutes and turn and then add in some lemon slices and roast for another 5 minutes or so until they are fork tender.  Time will vary depending on the size of your brussels sprouts.

After you remove them from the oven drizzle a mixture of lemon rind, butter and pepper over the roasted sprouts.
