Garlic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Did you know that April is National Garlic Month?  We're huge fans, so we celebrate it every month at my house.  This month I decided I wanted to try and use it with one of my new favorite vegetables, brussels sprouts.  I wasn't a complete veggie hater growing up, but I definitely stuck to ordinary things like corn and carrots.  I turned my nose up at aspagaragus, broccoli and brussels sprouts until a few years ago, when I discovered how amazing vegetables are when you roast them.   They get even more amazing when you add garlic as they're roasting!

Sadly, I'm the only one who will eat brussels sprouts, so I halved the recipe, and used 4 cloves of garlic.   The house smelled so good, I could hardly wait for dinner!  I like for some of them to get really crispy brown edges, so I let mine go the full 25 minutes.   It definitely wouldn't be terrible to add some cooked applewood smoked bacon to them either.   Thank you to Katherine M-C. for sharing her recipe!

Huge thanks also to Caroline from Caroline's Cooking for hosting, and to all the #FoodieExtravaganza friends for sharing their recipes, check them out using the links at the bottom of the page!

  3. I know what you mean about the Brussels Sprouts. It wasn't until roasting that I enjoyed them either. Time was, I boiled the bejeezuss out of them then buried them in as much cheese sauce as possible. My cats used to stare wondering what on earth I was burying, and then eating. They were pale green, mushy and except for the cheese sauce smelled like death. The old "boiling vegetables to the point of soup" really was abusive. Then I roasted them and have been happy ever since. It's not even the same veggie!

    1. Every veggie was canned and cooked to mush growing up, and it's taken me a while to be brave enough to try some of them again :)

  4. Brussels sprouts are definitely better roasted and like the idea of adding garlic as well.

    1. Both of my guys are serious veggie haters, but I keep on trying :) I probably didn't help foster a love for brussels sprouts with my son since I chocolate covered them for April Fools and told him it was a cake pop ;)

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Speedy Shepherd's Pie- Taste of Home 100 Family Meals cookbook

How often does your family eat meals together?  My husband worked second shift for over a decade, and it was a rare occasion for us all to sit down at the same time and eat.    Once he went to a better schedule, mealtime moved back to the table.   This past fall, we bought a house, and in the chaos of moving, we drifted away again.    Son likes to eat in front of the computer or phone, husband in front of the tv.   I'm guilty too, sometimes the jigsaw puzzle I'm working on can render the dining room table unusable for days. Looking for inspiration, I turned to Taste of Home's 100 Family Meals .  As you can see by the number of pages I marked, there's lots to be found! There are suggestions for entire meals, complete with a list of groceries you need.    It's well categorized for easy mixing and matching too.       The first recipe I chose was Speedy Shepherd's Pie.    It's a fun twist on the traditional version, using taco seasoned meat as the base.
