Roasted Brussels Sprouts

If you’ve never had Brussels sprouts before, for the love of god don’t have them when all that’s been done to them is getting boiled or steamed (bleh!), roasting is the way to go in my opinion !

This is a pretty simple recipe. You preheat your oven to 425 degrees F., take 2 pounds of Brussels sprouts and halve them, cutting a little into the base of the halved Brussels sprouts so they cook more evenly throughout (you can see what I’m talking about if you look at the sprouts in the pictures). Place the halved sprouts on a foil-lined baking sheet and drizzle 4 tablespoons of peanut oil over them, tossing to coat. Spread them out (having them all face one way will make it easier for the next part) and roast them for 15 minutes, flipping them after the first 10 minutes. Serve right away !

They’re great with some simple salt and pepper, or getting dipped into some gochujang or as my mom likes having them, shaking some Mrs. Dash lemon-pepper seasoning onto them before digging in.

Take care y’all !


Oven-Roasted Potato Wedges

Happy 4th of July everybody! I’m celebrating by playing games and watching 4th of july-themed movies/tv show episodes with my mom, eventually watching fireworks go off and eating some Hot Chick sandwiches with these delicious potato wedges !

It’s pretty easy to make these. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. For three people, we get three large russet potatoes, cut each into 8 pieces and place them in a large mixing bowl . Pour a tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil over the potato wedges and toss to coat. Now take a 1.13 oz. package of seasoning (I use McCormick Grill Mates Chipotle Pepper Marinade Mix) and pour it over the wedges, tossing until fully coated. Take a baking sheet and line it with aluminum foil, spraying the foil with nonstick cooking spray afterwards. Place the wedges on the foil and cook for 28 minutes, flipping them half-way through.

These potato wedges are so freaking delicious ! The chipotle coating gives it enough heat to notice without having to need something to drink and the potatoes are fully cooked. It’s also easy to change the coating to something else if you want to.

I was not paid in any form to promote McCormick’s.

Take care y’all !
