I love Brussels sprouts and one of my favorite ways to prepare them for fall is with roasted apple.
To start, we will need about one large apple so that we can get a cup diced. Then we’re going to add the apple to a bowl, along with about a cup of your halved brussel sprouts. Then you’ll add an apple cider vinegar to the bowl along with a pinch of fresh thyme, a little bit of olive oil and then salt and pepper to taste. Then we’re going to toss all the ingredients together so they’re well mixed and the seasonings are spread throughout. And then we’re going to add the mixture to a baking sheet.
We’re just going to put the Brussels sprouts in the oven for about 25 minutes or so at 375. It looks beautiful when it comes out of the oven.
Today, we paired it with the Nutrisystem Salisbury Steak with Mac and Cheese. To make that, take the entrée out of the box and then cut two one inch slits in the film. Put it in the microwave on high for about 3 and a half minutes. Then remove the film and stir the mac and cheese. Put in back in the microwave for 2 and a half minutes. And then just let it stand in the microwave for about another minute.
