Roasted Brussell Sprouts with Pears-2nd recipe for 2010

Above are the raw ingredients.... I tried this recipe
during Christmas- and everyone liked it.......but this
time Russell wasn't crazy about it and I think it had to
do with the freshness of the sprouts.....not quite as tasty...






Roasted Brussell Sprouts With Pears

Ingredients:
2 pounds fresh brussell sprouts trimmed and halved
2 firm red Bartlett pears cored and cut into 1/2 " wedges
6 shallots quartered
10 fresh thyme sprigs
3 T olive oil
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
2 T fresh lemon juice

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 425

On two large rimmed baking sheets toss brussell sprouts, pears,shallots,

thyme and oil-season with salt and pepper.

Roast until brussell sprouts are just tender and lightly browned-about

25-30 minutes-rotate pans halfway thru. Toss with lemon juice and serve warm. Yum



Brussell sprouts just out of the oven.....


Complete dinner...Meat loaf, mashed potatoes
and the beleagured Brussell sprouts.......
can't win 'em all!
