A Thanksgiving dinner is only as good as its sides. Even the most basic turkey can be helped along by tasty and fun side dishes. We’ve spent the last couple of weeks in the kitchen experimenting with all kinds of side dishes, from the traditional to the new and different. This recipe for roasted brussels sprouts is among our favorites. You can make adjustments according to your taste, and if you just follow the simple ratio it scales up (or down) super easily.

With this dish on the table, no one will complain about brussels sprouts ever again!
