Sauteed Brussel SproutsNow I know what you're thinking.... really, Gen... your kids love brussel spouts? I kid you not...they are soooo good!
1/2 cup of diced pancetta
1 small onion diced
1.5 lb thinly shaved brussel sprouts
1 cup chicken broth
In a large saute pan, swirl EVOO around your pan once and heat over medium-high heat. Add both the pancetta and the onion and lower the head to medium. Cook for a few minutes, until the pancetta has browned, stirring often. Add the brussel sprouts, sti to mix the onion mixture with the sprouts and cover. Cook for 5 minutes. Add about 1/2 cup of the broth and season with salt & pepper. Continue to cook until the sprouts are softened, adding additional broth if needed. Taste again for seasoning.
Roasted Smashed Potatoes
1 lb baby potatoes (red, purple, white)
EVOO- I use an herb infused oil
Wash your potatoes and place in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and boil for about 20 minutes or until fork tender.
Drain the potatoes well and dump onto a foil lined baking sheet. With potato masher (or fork), gently push down on each potato to "smash" them. Be careful, as they will be hot to the touch.
These are also make a great addition to brunch!
Hoping these ideas jazz up your everyday dinners!!!
