Roasted Brussels Sprouts
The trend of roasting Brussels sprouts has most likely changed the way people regard Brussels sprouts more than any one food trend that I can think of (even avocados on toast haha!). Most of us grew up with parents that steamed the ever lovin’ heck out of Brussels sprouts and while I will eat these guys any way that I can, roasting Brussels sprouts has made people discover that they can actually enjoy them.
Sorry Moms and Dads of the 70’s and 80’s, you know it’s true. Steamed Brussels sprouts were never really that good.
Roasted Brussel sprouts with bacon almost guarantee that everyone will eat them, and the lemon in these is so refreshing. Speaking of which, if you haven’t tried out lemon olive yet, put it on your shopping list.
Lemon olive oil on ricotta cheese on a piece of crusty bread = heaven on earth.
Not to mention that lemon infused olive oil is fantastic to cook with!
Fresh, light, lemony – these lemon bacon roasted Brussels sprouts are the bomb!
