Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Roasted Brussels sprouts are cooked on the outside until they are golden brown and semi soft and still crunchy in the inside. The idea is to keep them crispy (not baby food type). In my house this is a favorite vegetable for the Thanksgiving menu. This same recipe can be followed to cook other vegetables. Try this recipe with cauliflower.
