Aint Your Grandma's Brussel Sprouts

Good morning all, here we are the first of May and I bring veggies to your table.  Well I have to tell you these are not your ordinary brussel sprouts.  Normally grandmas and mamas will just boil them when they have no color left and add some butter, salt and pepper or vinegar.  Kids everywhere were not liking them and brussel sprouts were known across the land as the classic food to feed to your dog or shove under your mashed potatoes.  The recipe I am about to share with you will not only re make a classic veggie but it will awaken your taste buds.  


1-2 pounds of fresh Brussel sprouts ( you can use frozen just let them thaw first)
1 tablespoon of butter unsalted
4 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar or enough to coat all the Brussel sprouts
1-2 shakes of Tabasco sauce or you can use cayenne pepper
Salt and Pepper to taste


Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees, and grab a large sauce pan, fill it with water and bring to a boil on the top of your stove.  Start slicing your sprouts in half.  When your water comes up to a boil throw in the sprouts and let cook for about a minute or two.  Next grab a cookie sheet and place your sprouts on the pan.  Melt your butter in the microwave or on the stove and pour evenly over the top of sprouts.  Next add the balsamic vinegar, add just enough to coat them all.  Mix them up with the butter and vinegar and put them in the oven.  Roast them for about 20-25 minutes.  As soon as they come out of the oven hit them with some hot sauce, salt and pepper, give them a good stir and serve.  

I hope you all enjoy these as much as my family did!  Live, Laugh and Love.  Heather
