Roasted Brussel Sprouts

I know this post is a bit thin, but it’s Friday, it’s been a long week, I wanted to post something quick!  Besides, it really is a great way to prepare sprouts, and my family eats them right up.

  • 1 lb. brussel sprouts, outer leaves removed, cut in half
  • 2 t. olive oil
  • 1/2 t. coarse salt
  • 1/2 t. pepper

Heat the oven to 400 degrees.  Toss the sprouts with the oil, salt and pepper. 

Spread them on a baking sheet and roast for about 20 minutes, tossing halfway through.  The sprouts will have brown caramelized spots, they will be tender, but not mushy, and a few of the leaves that fall off will be crisp and tasty.
