All you need is butter, garlic, and salt to make this delicious and easy side dish. Double or triple the recipe for a quick way to serve a crowd.

Brussels sprouts are simply seasoned with salt, pepper, and olive oil, then slow-roasted in a very hot oven until darkest brown. They are the perfect combination of sweet and salty, and make for perfect snack leftovers straight from the fridge the next day!

Love roasted brussel sprouts. So good on their own or with some carrot chunks roasted with them. I'll roast the bruseel sprounts with onion slices too, the onion carmalizes and goes great with the sprouts.

For veggies I simply steam fresh carrot slices and peas. Boring, I know, but with the mashed potato and gravy it's good for us.

Hi Linda, peas and carrots are never boring, just look at them as being classic vegetables. they always work don't they?

I like the contrast of colors on a Thanksgiving plate and they stick to the mashed potatoes.

I make this salad all year long, but it is especially great for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Just freeze a few bags of cranberries to use at a later date. I know this will become a tradition to anyone who tries it, it's delicious! Garnish with frosted cranberries and mint leaves, if desired. For frosted cranberries, wet cranberries with water, and roll in sugar.
