When I was young the only time we ever ate Brussels Sprouts is on Thanksgiving.  Frankly, I never liked them.  Yet, every Thanksgiving when I became an adult, I had to have them our table.  I still did not like them.  Then, one day, I read this recipe and fell in love with it. When I switched our Thanksgiving table to this Brussels sprout recipe everyone fell in love with it. 

Tip:  this can be made the day ahead or hours earlier and reheated in the microwave or in an oven covered before serving.

Pre heat oven to 375 degrees
