I'd like to try roasting them, too...wow, that sounds delicious....although my daughters will complain if I smell up the house. For a long time I didn't cook brussels, even though I love them, because my husband claimed he hates them (bad childhood experience with over cooked, bitter veggies). I bought fresh brussels a few months ago and promised my husband that if he didn't like how I prepared them, I wouldn't make him face them again. Like others here, I also sauteed them (having cut them in half, first) with onion and garlic in olive oil & a dab of butter. I used my 10" non-stick omlette pan. Actually, the onion and garlic are started first, only adding the brussels after the onion has started to caramelize a little. After adding the brussels, I only sautee them until they start to turn bright green and their surfaces have caramelized a little, then the heat gets turned down, and a lid put on the pan for a couple of minutes so that they can get tender, but not over-cook. This doesn't seem to smell too bad! My husband liked them. The next time, I added mushrooms to the sautee. That was nice. Next time I think I'll try the bacon suggestion.

I like to roast my Brussel's with onion and pine nuts. I'm going to try the roasted mixed root vegetables also. Looks like a good recipe :)

Drizzle with a bit of reduced balsamic before roasting - really good. At least try a few at first.

I would be afraid the pine nuts would burn if I roasted them in the same pan as the Brussels sprouts. Wouldn't they burn?
