Believe it or not this is my first attempt ever at making brussels sprouts!
3/4 - 1 lb brussels sprouts
2 tbsps olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
3 slices bacon, cut in 1 inch pieces
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
Cut ends off the brussels sprouts and cut the extra large ones in half. Mix in the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I prepared to this point earlier in the day and just kept them in a plastic bag.
When ready to cook spread your sprouts out on a parchment lined baking sheet. Distribute the bacon pieces and sprinkle all with salt and pepper.
Roast at 400F for 20-30 minutes. Stir them around halfway through.
Remove from the oven and toss in the cranberries and walnuts. I should have used walnut halves, they would've looked better, but chopped is what I had on hand. But aren't the colours great?
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
