Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Another Fall Favorite Vegetable

Brussels Sprouts are one my favorite Fall Vegetables, and not just because they create beautiful food photography.  Brussels Sprouts are so easy to prepare with no peeling or dicing required.

I simply slice each one in half, drizzle with a little olive oil and season with salt & pepper.  After roasting for about 10-15 minutes until crispy brown, they make a perfect side dish.

But to be honest, I eat them as a snack…. they’re so crunchy and delicious.
