Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I feel almost silly posting a recipe that’s so simple, but these are so yummy, I just have to share. I never ate Brussels sprouts until I was an adult, and for years in no other preparation but covered with cream sauce. I can’t recall now what first inspired us to roast them, but I’m so glad we tried it! This dish is now a favorite among most members of the family. Even my two-year-old has actually begun to eat them, rather than merely chewing them up and spitting them out.
