Brussels Sprouts!!

I had the most amazing brussels sprouts for dinner tonight!  I found the recipe for Caramelized Brussels Sprouts on Pinterest.  Here is the link:  http://www.eatliverun.com/caramelized-brussels-sprouts

The original recipe called for brown sugar and I don’t buy that so I used my sucanat instead and it worked great.  I also added a little butter to finish up at the end.  (You do remember that healthy fats don’t make you fat, right?!  Yes…butter is a healthy fat!)

When I was growing up, Mom used to boil brussels sprouts and cover them in a velveeta cheese sauce.  Let’s just say that they were not my favorite veggie at that time. 

What was going through my head when I decided to buy a bag of brussel sprouts, I will never know.  When I got home, I started looking for ways to make them edible.  (Velveeta was out of the question!)  I found a recipe that had you rub them with olive oil, add Celtic sea salt and roast them in the oven.  They were so good!!  The whole family loves them.

If you have never cared for brussels sprouts, you really should give them another shot.  But please, whatever you do, don’t cover them in Velveeta!!  ;o)
