O my yum!!!! One of my favorites. Brussel Sprouts!!! My hubby was convinced for years that he hated them! He wouldn’t even give them a chance regardless of how many times I told him it’s all how you make them & I have to admit I make some yummy ones!
He finally gave in a few weeks back and tried one of my favorite ways to chef them up, sheetpan style with asparagus! He likes asparagus, so we figured if he really did hate Brussel Sprouts he could at least have the asparagus to eat.
Safe to say I was 100% correct! If you make Brussel Sprouts correctly, they are beyond delicious! He enjoyed them so much that I made them again a few days later and this time snapped a few pictures for y’all!!
