roasted brussel sprouts
This is a simple side dish recipe that my mother-in-law gave me.
(unfortunately this is one of those recipes where you have to feel your measurements because it is second nature to my in-law)
Preheat oven  375 degrees F  
Mix all ingredients in a bowl together. Brush brussels sprouts with olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette with salt, pepper, fresh diced garlic mixture. Spread sprouts in a layer in a glass pan . Bake for about 30-40 minutes.
You can also use create this side dish with butternut squash or mixed veggies to include both of these veggies along with onions, carrots, potatoes.
