For another Halloween sidedish, I roasted some Brussels sprouts. And they were a hit!
Brussels sprouts (enough that lay in a single layer in your baking dish)
freshly ground sea salt
freshly ground pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place all of the sprouts in a mixing bowl. Cut the larger ones in half, but you can leave the small ones whole. Drizzle them with enough olive oil to coat them and make them glisten. Toss them with minced garlic. Season with salt and pepper.
Roast for 15 minutes. Move the sprouts around in the pan. Roast for another 15 minutes. When cooked and slightly browned, season with more salt and pepper and drizzle with more oil. Serve hot or at room temperature.
