Balsamic Roasted Brussel Sprouts
This is from George Duran's cookbook "Take This Dish & Twist It"
We had them with dinner tonight and they were pretty darn tastie!
2 pounds Brussels sprout
1 large onion, sliced
4 medium carrots, sliced
8 slices bacon, coarsly chopped
1/4 cup pine nuts
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup EVOO
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1. Preheat oven to 400*. Cut off bottoms of brussel sprouts and trim any damaged outer leaves. Soak the brussel sprouts in water for a few minutes; drain well. Cut the sprouts in 1/2 and put them in a large bowl. Add the onions, carrots, bacon, pine nuts, thyme, oregano, salt and pepper. Add the oil & vinegar; toss well to coat.
2. Place the mixture in a roasting pan.; bake for 25 minutes. Stir and bake for 25 more minutes or until the sprouts are nicely browned and the vinegar is carmelized. Serve immediately. I threw mine under the broiler for a few minutes at the end to caramelize them up real nice.
I hope this isn't negative!
