"These mini cabbages are surprisingly big on flavor," notes Tina Repack of Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Although the brussels sprouts are very simply seasoned, roasting them caramelizes their natural sugars, giving them a subtle sweetness.

"Roasting brussel sprouts is the only way to eat them. I omitted the butter and just upped the olive oil . I used kosher salt. T also didn't parboil as that just takes all the nutrients away."

"Loved it, two out of four kids loved it and my husband loved it. Instead of boiling them in water, I boiled them in chicken broth and added minced garlic to the pan when I baked it, yummmmm."

"If you've never had brussel sprouts, roasting them like this is the way to go. They tasted awesome.

I cut off the ends and cut eat sprout in half and put a notch in the base of each (instead of the X in the whole core). I did NOT parboil them as directed...just put them in a bag with the oil to get them covered and then put them in the pan and covered with sea salt and pepper (used a grinder for both). Roasted them as directed for about 20 minutes until they were beginning to get brown and a little crispy. Everyone tried them and they were really good. I loved them and my 8 year old thought they were 'pretty good'. My youngest didn't like them. My husband who said he had brussel sprouts as a child and hated them admitted this time while he wouldn't ask for them, they were okay...which is super high praise for my picky Pete!"
