Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  • Peel shallots, leaving the root ends intact so they'll hold together. Place on a large sheet of foil; sprinkle 1 tablespoon oil over the top. Seal the packet and bake until the shallots are tender, about 45 minutes. Remove from foil and set aside to cool.

  • Meanwhile, remove the outer leaves from Brussels sprouts and trim the stems. Cut the small sprouts in half and quarter the larger ones. Place the shallots and Brussels sprouts in a roasting pan. Toss with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and salt.

  • Increase oven temperature to 400 degrees F. Roast, tossing twice during cooking, until the Brussels sprouts are tender and lightly browned, 25 to 35 minutes.

Cons: N/A Read More

Great easy recipe I have made this recipe as is and also in a hurry. Sauteed the shallots and microwaved the shallots for 2 min then roasted for 10-15 min. Both great. Read More
