brussels sprouts!

overheard at publix:

son: mom, can we please get some brussells sprouts?!

mom: no.

son: pleeeeeeease!!!!

mom: no.

while the kid wasn’t successful in convincing him mom to buy brussels sprouts, he was successful in convincing me!

i made them last night for dinner!

they were delicious! i could only eat two thirds of them. they were much bigger than they look in the picture (most of them were slightly smaller than a golf ball).

here’s how i made them:

  • i steamed the brussels sprouts until they were tender
  • then i dabbed each one in a little bit of dijon mustard
  • then i rolled each one in a mixture of whole wheat bread crumbs, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, and paprika
  • i turned the toaster on “fan bake” and set it to 450 degrees and baked them for 15 minutes
