Is it Brussels sprouts or brussel sprouts??? Apparently there is a wide discussion about which is correct. All of you type A personalities out there might be interested to know the results of my research. Brussels sprouts originated from Belgium in Northern Europe. The capital of Belgium is Brussels, hence the name of this variety of cabbage. So Brussels sprouts is it!
Now that we are done with our grammar/geography lesson, let’s get on with the cooking.
Roasted Brussels sprouts are a delicious side dish. The texture is more crunchy and firm than you get with boiled or steamed Brussels sprouts. If you like a sweeter taste, choose smaller (young) sprouts. They have a sweeter taste while the larger ones have a bittersweet flavor.
Roasted Brussels sprouts are very easy to throw together; however, they do take some time in the oven. Follow these steps to make a great tasting dish.
