Brussels Sprouts.

Cute little veggies that look like mini cabbages. Don’t ya know I love cute little veggies. Grape tomatoes, petite potatoes, and little baby mushrooms – they all have a place in my heart. Funny story though, brussels sprouts did not have a place in my heart when I was a kid. They had a place in my napkin, as in me spitting them into my napkin when my mom made me try them. I thought I was slick. A little “cough cough” into the napkin after I took a bite, no one would know. And for many years, I though no one knew. Then one day, it somehow came up while I was chatting with my mom. Yeah, she knew my little trick. We laughed about it then but I can only imagine the wrath of a mother who wanted her children to try veggies, only to find her beloved daughter was “coughing” said veggies into a napkin. I’m glad mom contained her wrath of veggie anger.

I’m also equally glad that I finally came around to liking loving brussels sprouts. My favorite way to enjoy them – roasted with bacon. Yum. I’m drooling just thinking about it. Excuse me while I clean up the drool.

Ok, that’s better. Anywho, I based this recipe off of a recipe that I found in Clean Eating Magazine, Volume 7, Issue 2. I’m such a good little citation gal, aren’t I? I should be. I’ve been living in APA land for the past couple of years. I’m happy to say that I will be taking a permanent vacation from APA land starting in August.

    Julie, I was late coming around to brussels sprouts but now I am in love! And this frittata sounds like a great way to use them, especially with all that gorgeous goat cheese :)

      Aww, thank you, Chelsea! And see, I was having doubts about the photos at first. I think they came out pretty well, though. Thanks so much for the compliment. :)

      Thank you, Ashley! I’ve have been on a brussels sprouts frenzy. I have had them at least three times in the last month. Well, made them three times. I always have leftovers so I’ve eaten far more times than three times. I think I am going to have Ken grill them one day to see how they turn out.

      Thanks so much for stopping by. :)
