Brussels sprouts … the dreaded childhood vegetable! Properly prepared, however, these can become favorites for kids and adults alike. Seriously, I have kids who get excited when they find out it’s roasted Brussels sprouts for dinner!
They’re also a great addition to a Thanksgiving or holiday menu, or a perfect accompaniment to chicken or fish. It all comes together with just 15 minutes of hands-on time and just one baking sheet. So if you’re in the store or at the farmer’s market and you see Brussels sprouts on sale (or if you grow them), go ahead and try this recipe!
Delicious Brussels sprouts that even kids will eat!
My kids call Brussels sprouts mini cabbage. I had never noticed before they mentioned it, but they really look like mini cabbage which makes them more fun and attractive to kids.
It’s really cool to watch them grow too. I’ve found that children are more willing to try them when they grow their own vegetables and then cook them.
The secret of this Brussels sprouts? The addition of bacon! It doesn’t take a lot of bacon to get a nice hearty, salty crunch that compliments the slightly bitter notes of green vegetables.
We also like to drizzle some raw honey over Brussels sprouts for a sweet and salty mix!
Roast Brussels sprouts
This recipe was inspired by a restaurant I visited once. I didn’t think I would like the texture or taste of this particular vegetable. But everything was served family, so I tried it. I was absolutely blown away by how good they were! Something magical happens when you fry vegetables.
I often have the children help by chopping each sprout into halves or quarters. I keep one of these crinkle cutters for every child so they can help without cutting their fingers. It’s also a great kid-friendly tool so they can help chop up carrots and celery for snacks or parsnips, zucchini, etc. for soups.
After they are chopped, toss them on a sheet pan with some sliced onion and diced bacon, sprinkle with spices, mix everything well and put in the oven. Just ignore it and let it do its thing while you work on the rest of the dinner.
Don’t you think you’re a Brussels sprout person? You probably never prepared them well. Try these out … they might change your mind!
To update: I’ve always roasted vegetables in the oven, but recently I’ve had one Hot air fryer and it works phenomenally for frying vegetables. It takes less time, doesn’t heat up the whole house and makes them nice and crispy. If you’d like to try them this way, cook them at 375 ° F for 15 minutes.
