Picture from the Barefoot Contessa Cookbook
Do you like brussel sprouts? I do, and what's so strange, I prefer the frozen rather than the fresh! I found a great recipe for baked brussel sprouts on the Food Network, under the Barefoot Contessa Cookbook. The only thing is, she uses fresh ones. So I modified her recipe a bit.
I only had an old cake pan to cook them in, but I placed a small bag of frozen brussel sprouts Green Giant, Birdseye or pictsweet (have you tried the pictsweet brand at Walmart-I was surprised, their food is really good), it so happens, the ones I used this time were the pictsweet brand. Spread them out as much as you can, drizzle three tablespoons of olive oil (the olive oil for cooking, which in my case is Crisco Light Tasting olive oil (best for frying and baking).
A pinch of salt, and ground black pepper. Mix well, until you see an oil sheen over all the sprouts. Cook 45 minutes in a pre-heated 400 degree oven, or until they start turning a golden brown and are hot all the way through. See the picture at the top of the page. To me, they were delicious and so easy to prepare!
