Hash Brown Brussels Sprouts

Hash Brown Brussels Sprouts

Diced potatoes, baby Brussels sprouts and onions are roasted to crispy, golden brown in this baked version of hash browns.

Hash browns are normally breakfast food but I think of this as more of a side. I didn’t feel the urge to eat them with eggs but alongside a hearty meatloaf for dinner. It was a perfect match. You know what would of made it better? Bacon. Mix in a chopped-up slice, maybe two or even three and you’ll bring it one step closer to perfect.

I posted a similar version of this recipe all the way back in 2009. An entire five years ago. I can’t even believe July is my sixth blog anniversary (the longest I’ve ever stuck with anything). Although most, if not all of my 2008 posts were lost the last time I switched hosts (I’m still trying to get them back). Most of the recipes are still available in my recipe index, you’ll know they’re old by the poor photography. It’s almost unbearable to look at them. . .

But most of the recipes are worth revisiting and updating now that I’m a better cook. This was one I was craving, surprisingly, because I’m not a fan of sprouts. They’ve never been anything to crave but something to avoid at all costs.

When I was a kid I called them baby cabbage heads and that was the nicest thing I called them because I hated them with a passion. I like them now, so long as they are dolled up somehow and not just steamed until soggy.

I’ll take them all roasted-up, crispy and charred, salted and peppered to the hilt. Any time.

    Hi there Reeni!
    This is an awesome recipe which I will make this Sunday—yes, I know I should be treated out to dinner for Mother’s day but the baby girl is coming in for a visit and she LOVES sprouts! We called them “baby brains” when she a little one. If she could eat one thing all day long it would be sprouts. I do hope your Mom and you have a splendid day on Sunday and I know you have something special planned for her. Have a wonderful day with her! X0X

      Hi Doris! Heehee love your name for sprouts! Have a wonderful Mother’s day with your daughter! I’m glad you’ll be spending it with her. Have a lovely weekend too and thanks for stopping by! xoxo

        Hi Reeni!
        A Happy Mother’s Day to your dear Mom. I had the perfect day and I had to write and tell you that I made this dish as I told you I would—well, let me just say it was the perfect accompaniement to my roast beef . Aly gobbled it up as did my son , who has never really been fond of the tiny cabbages. It was so satisfying to see it all gone—just DE–LICIOUS! Have a great upcoming week and big hugs to you and Moon.

    Oh, and what is the best way to toss while on the cookie sheet without having “escapees”? That’s a problem I have any time I have to stir or toss things on a shallow pan.

    • Reeni says

      Toss them toward the middle then spread them out! Escapees are inevitable. :-) Yes – the bacon does add overall flavor to the finished dish! I liked it better with.
