Growing up I was not a fan of vegetables. If I did have them, it was broccoli. As I got older, studied abroad and lived with other people, I was introduced to new food and at the age of 23, I tried Brussels sprouts for the first time. I always heard they smelled bad but at a company dinner, they were ordered for the table and I tried one of these “baby lettuce heads” and was surprisingly impressed. Since then, I’ve never tried to make them at home, but over the holidays, I grabbed a few and started experimenting in the kitchen. I’ve had a few rounds of trying new recipes, but I think I have found a combination that works for me. Check it out below.
What You’ll Need
- Brussels sprouts, rinsed
- Garlic powder
- Garlic salt
- Chicago steak seasoning
- Olive oil
What To Do
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Chop off the knobby ends of each sprout.
- Cut each sprout in half the long way.
- For smaller bites, cut each half in half again.
- Season with garlic powder, garlic salt, steak seasoning and pepper. Feel free to add anything else you might like.
- Toss in a light amount of olive oil.
- Roast for about 15 minutes before flipping, then roast for an additional 10 minutes or until crispy.

Until next time…
