Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
Made my first roasted crispety shaved Brussels sprouts, crowded the pan so not all were crispety but yum. Will have to try again with larger pan. In same oven also roasted first try at a single cornish hen, trying to cook for one. Bottom skin not crispy so next time will put on rack because also yum.
Brussprouts were flavored by soaking some crushed garlic, cayenne and coarse salt in a little olive oil and tossing them in that. Ground coarse black pepper over.
Hen had some more crushed garlic, cayenne and marjoram in cavity, plus ground coarse salt on outside after rubbing with olive oil.
Tried to time it to come out of oven at same time but veg were done first so 3 courses: veg, then all the salty crispy skin off the bird, then the bird itself.
