Cooking: Roasted Chestnuts

Bring on the holiday tunes and all the glitter and ribbons!  Roasting chestnuts is just one of the things I look forward to during this season.  What's great is they're super easy to make and affordable too. You can pop these quickly in the oven, but I just use my toaster oven and that works great too!

Roasted Chestnuts

Prep time: 5 mins
Cook time: 20 mins

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Rinse and thoroughly dry your chestnuts.

Mark an 'X' on the flat side of your chestnuts with a knife.  This is essential, because it allows the steam to escape while the chestnuts are cooking.  Otherwise they may explode in your oven!

Place chestnuts, cut-side up on an aluminum lined tray.  Bake for 20 minutes.*

*Note: Baking time may vary.  Most recently I only made a handful of chestnuts in my tiny toaster oven, and it was done in 15 minutes. 

Peel the shell off the chestnuts, and there you have it!

What's your favorite thing to do to ring in the holiday season?

Happy Holidays!

  1. They are already cooked, all you need to do is heat them. If a crock pot is all you have for Trailer mechanic services Florida heating, put the meal in the pot, cover, turn on the heat and in about 30 minutes check to see how hot it is.
