Recipe of the Week:

A favorite at the Magryta house is sheet pan roasted vegetables. You can use cabbage, potatoes, asparagus carrots and so many others in this dish. The constant is the bacon and it's fat and the chick peas. You can also add garlic powder for a flavor twist. This is the way that I taught my children and their friends to enjoy brassica vegetables like brussels. Another variation is to sub Italian sausage or pancetta for the bacon.

Ingredients:

5 strips of nitrate free bacon chopped
brussel sprouts washed and halved
1 can of chick peas drained and rinsed
salt
pepper

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375F
Layer cooking sheet pan with sprouts and chick peas. Place chopped bacon around pan. Bake for 25 minutes or to desired crunch of the chick peas. Shake pan every 5 minutes to rotate the veggies. Salt and Pepper to taste.

Enjoy,
