Sharing is caring! These on the stalk roasted Brussels sprouts are the perfect addition to your holiday spread. They roast up beautifully and easily come right off the stalk. Serve them plain or with a side of garlic mayo.
10 years ago, Brussels sprouts were far from my favorite vegetable. The mere mention of them would make me cringe. Even worse, people would suggest drowning them in cheese sauce. Cheese sauce on vegetables? No, thank you! I believe in savoring the natural flavor of vegetables.
But then, I discovered the magic of roasting vegetables. And when I learned how to make on the stalk roasted Brussels sprouts, everything changed. These sprouts are not only incredibly delicious but also add a festive touch to any meal. Trust me, you’ll impress everyone when you pull these beauties out of the oven!
Where can I buy on the stalk Brussels sprouts?
I have found on the stalk Brussels sprouts at both Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods. You might also find them in local grocery stores, although it can be hit or miss. Look for them near other green vegetables, not in the cold section of the vegetable aisle. Prepare yourself for their impressive size, easily reaching two feet or longer. It’s quite interesting to see how these “adorable little cabbages” grow.
Can I make this recipe with off the stalk Brussels sprouts?
Absolutely! If you don’t have access to on the stalk Brussels sprouts, off the stalk ones will work as well. You’ll need around 2 pounds of Brussels sprouts but remember to adjust the roasting time accordingly.
How do I make on the stalk roasted Brussels sprouts?
Roasting Brussels sprouts on the stalk might seem daunting at first, especially when you’re facing a two-foot-long stalk of vegetables. But fear not, it’s actually super easy! Start by giving the stalk a good rinse. If needed, use a sprayer nozzle to reach all those little crevices. Once rinsed, dry it as best as you can. Then, place it on a sheet pan, drizzle with olive oil, and season with kosher salt and black pepper. If the stalk is too long, you can cut it in half and roast both halves on the same pan or use another sheet pan. Choose a stalk that will fit on your pan, either straight or angled.
Why the homemade garlic mayonnaise?
Now, you might be wondering about dipping these roasted Brussels sprouts in mayonnaise. I know I mentioned my distaste for cheese earlier, but believe me, this combination is irresistibly tasty! However, if mayo isn’t your thing, you can still enjoy the sprouts plain. They are delicious on their own.
Why roast them on the stalk?
Roasting Brussels sprouts on the stalk offers both convenience and flavor. Once roasted, you can easily cut them off the stalk or leave them out as an appetizer, allowing guests to pull them off themselves. They make for a delightful side dish or a perfect addition to any appetizer platter. Personally, I love them plain with dinner, but when serving as an appetizer, a little dip in garlic mayonnaise adds a delightful twist.
