Good Morning - Happy Monday to you!
A lot of you asked about the brussel sprouts recipe - I don't like brussels sprouts to be honest with you - but I loved Jenn's. So don't be afraid to try them! Delicious!
OK, here's the recipe for the brussels sprouts:
Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Vinegar and Pancetta
From Bon Appetit
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 lbs brussels sprouts, trimmed, halved
6 oz thinly sliced pancetta, chopped (ok to substitute bacon)
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Brush heavy large rimmed baking sheet with 1 tablespoon olive oil.
Place 1 tablespoon oil in large bowl; mix in brussels sprouts, pancetta, and garlic.
Sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper.
Spread mixture in single layer on prepared sheet.
Roast until brussels sprouts are tender and brown, stirring often, about 20 minutes.
(Can be made 3 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature.)
Drizzle brussels sprouts with vinegar; sprinkle with thyme.
Stir to coat. Return to 450 degree oven; roast until heated through, about 5 minutes.
Transfer to bowl;
The other thing friends asked for - I explained her dressing - she went to a site that allowed you to pick what you want in your dressing and they will tell you how much of everything to use.
It was a great site - because they don't only make dressing the way you want - there is a lot more!
Thank you Jenn! My buddies will love this!
The create your own stuffing came from here: Create-your-own stuffing

Goes for brussel sprouts too!
