Brussels sprouts – the perfect holiday side dish – are simply seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic, orange juice and orange zest, then slow roasted in a hot pan until golden brown. They get that nutty sweetness and nicely brown crisp exterior. Yum! It’s simple, easy and quick to make and oh so delicious!
I hope you like them as much as I do! 🙂
