Classic Roasted Brussel Sprouts

With fall just around the corner, roasted vegetables are becoming a dinner staple in our house. Some of my favorites are broccoli, beets, carrots, potatoes and Brussel sprouts.

I had never eaten roasted Brussel sprouts until a couple of years ago. Growing up they’ll always make them boiled at my house. I liked them but I wasn’t very wild about them… Now I love them and could eat them every day!

I like the smaller ones because I feel they absorb the flavor of the spices better. If you can only find big ones just cut them in 4 parts instead of halves… Enjoy!
