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!

Buttery Oven Roasted Mushrooms

Mushrooms are great!  They are nutritious and, personally, I love the taste!  Also, I love butter!  I know some of you avoid eating dairy completely, but you might want to reconsider butter.  Butter has a lot of pro’s, especially, grass fed butter!  Of course if you are avoiding dairy because you are allergic or something, you should still avoid it.  If so, you can still make this yummy oven roasted mushrooms with your cooking fat/oil of choice!  All right, enough blabber, here’s my super easy Oven Roasted Mushrooms recipe!

So if you don’t know exactly how long to steam it, I would avoid that.  How to guarantee delicious asparagus?  Roast it in the oven! It’s so simple too.
