Simple Oven Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I’m a weirdo and love Brussels Sprouts.  It’s funny because I don’t actually recall ever having them when I was younger.  So maybe that is why I never learned to hate them at a young age (though I never did have a “I hate veggies” stage).  I will admit I’ve had brussels sprouts that were made… not so tasty.  But it doesn’t have to be this way!  It’s so easy to make yummy tasting brussels sprouts!  For example, this super easy oven roasted brussels sprouts!
