Help Needed: Brussels Sprout Edition

It has been well documented that I am a crap cook,
But I am aiming for “wife of the day,” so I figured I would try to make dinner tonight.

So folks, who has a recipe for healthy & tasty brussels sprouts that is easy enough for me to pull off?

This seems like something you guys will totally have an answer for….

  27. freckledog said: Any of the recipes already posted will be delicious. But what you must, MUST do is make sure they are roasted long enough to be fully crispy! They should be nice and dark all over. It’s all about texture and mush is a no-go for the brussies!
