Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Fall is time for fresh veggies, and I've been wanting Brussels Sprouts for awhile, so I came up with this. I know the time and temperature seem excessive, but believe me, you want them to look like this. The brown, almost black bits are sweet and yummy, and there's a perfect blend of salty and sweet.

Will be trying that next time! I hope you enjoy :) ...more
