Brussel Sprout goof up

I made brussel sprouts in an iron skillet. I pulled them off and popped in the oven on warm while I cooked the meat. My dummy move was forgetting that skillet was still over 400. My sprouts were extra crispy not original. Looked ugly as sin but still tasted okay. I should have dumped them in a glass dish. This gives me a great excuse to cook again tomorrow. 
Good news is I tried smashed burgers with that meal. Unreal!!! The family ate them quicker than I could take pics.

  • Sprouts get better the crispier they get.  Truth.
  • I recently discovered I love sprouts. I remember them as a kid and did not like them at all. Opened a whole new world to me when I discovered I liked them trying them again a few months ago.

    I par boil them first. Fry chopped streaky bacon in a pan with chilli then fry the sprouts in the bacon fat.
  • As goof ups go this is a pretty minor offense around here.  We've had people tie their dogs to their Eggs with devastating results...
