Here’s a simple appetizer that you can make any time of year that’s sure to please everyone. I happen to really like brussel sprouts, though not everyone does. So when I make them, I add potatoes. This recipe is a great side dish, but also nice for a party, served with a little homemade blue cheese dip.
Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Baby Potatoes & Blue Cheese Dip
To make this dish, all you have to do is wash the potatoes and brussel sprouts. You may also want to slice off the bottom of each sprout if they seem a little tough. Toss them in olive oil and a coarse salt.
Spread them in a single layer on a jelly roll pan or cookie sheet, and bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes, or until they are slightly soft and golden brown.
Serve immediately as a side dish, or set out with toothpicks and a dipping sauce like this creamy homemade blue cheese dip.
Here’s the recipe:
- bag of brussel sprouts
- bag of baby potatoes
- ½ c extra virgin olive oil
