The coolest Brussel sprouts you'll ever see!
Families

"What in the world is that?"  Bearing more resemblance to a Medieval torture device than a vegetable, it is no wonder people are confused!  Finding Brussel sprouts on the stalk in a grocery store is very rare, although my local Trader Joe's has been carrying them each fall for the past several years.

Take a chance:  buy one if you can.  The first time you bring this strange-looking product home, your family (especially the kids!) will be amazed and intrigued.  And if you prepare it using these easy directions,  the delicious taste will win everyone over.

Snap or cut the individual Brussel sprouts off the stalk.  Remove any wilted or coarse leaves and wash the heads.  If the heads are large, cut in half--otherwise leave them whole.  Place in a sturdy baking dish, drizzle with two tablespoons olive oil, and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and pepper.

Bake at 450 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes, until the sprouts are browned and soft.
