On the Menu Today~
Roasted Brussels Sprouts

We are trying to eat healthier and
that means adding more vegetables to our diet.
I really like Brussels sprouts but I have never roasted them before.
Roasting is a great way to bring out flavor and
natural sweetness in many vegetables.
Brussels sprouts are no exception.
Try roasting Brussels sprouts with shallots and mini sweet peppers,
sprinkle on Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb seasoning blend.
You can sprinkle the top of the roasted vegetables with
some crispy bacon and  Parmesan cheese before serving.
