Now that the holidays are over, life seems to be settling down a bit.  Well, one could hope that to be the case, but it really just isn’t so.

With all the hustle and bustle of change, sometimes it’s comforting just to get back to the basics.  And, what would be better than the basics of good old Brussels sprouts?

Pretty much nothin’!

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Cover the sprouts in a large pot of water and bring to a boil.  Blanch for 2-3 minutes, until bright green.  Remove from the heated water with a slotted spoon, transferring to a large glass baking dish.  Add diced onions, Kerrygold, and sea salt and pepper.  Cover with foil, roasting about 25 minutes.  Remove foil, stir, and let the caramelizing magic happen.
