Oma's Roasted Brussels Sprouts Recipe 

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

Brussel Sprouts with bacon, yum yum!

Oma's Brussels sprouts recipe is so easy to make. Not only that, but Oma (that's me) knows how to make this healthy veggie into extraordinary. WUNDERBAR! And that's by ROASTING!

These little 'rose cabbages' (as translated from the German "Rosenkohl") take on a whole new flavor when made this modern way.

Now, if you've ever wondered how to roast Brussels sprouts, the temps, the times, and the extras added, just follow along below. I love taking a modern approach to traditional German recipes!

These little cabbages have a bold taste and can be served in a variety of ways. Try them roasted with bacon! Wunderbar! Or roast up an extra batch to turn into a salad!

That's right, a salad. Mix with baby spinach or kale. Add a dressing .... check out the recipe below as well as my more traditional Brussels Sprouts recipe.

Below I've roasted Brussels sprouts with lots of bacon, roasted potatoes and roasted sausage!

Oma's easy Roasted Brussels Sprouts  -- so good! Cover with bacon bits for a yummy treat!

I just love how my Mutti would take those traditional German vegetables and create easy vegetable recipes. Above, is an example of how this Oma turned it even easier

If you're looking for a more traditional German approach for Brussel sprouts, check out this one made with cream -- yes, that's traditional German food for sure!


Roasted Brussels Sprouts Salad:

Why not make a double batch of these roasted Brussel sprouts -- and let the second batch cool.

Mix them together with about 4 cups of baby spinach (or kale). Pour over some balsamic vinaigrette.

Add some cheese (goat's cheese would be awesome).

You've got yourself a wonderful Roasted Brussels sprout salad!
