Lemon & Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Do you capitalize Brussels sprout or leave it as brussels sprout? How about the “s” at the end of brussel? According to my research, the following are all correct: Brussels sprout, Brussel sprout, brussels sprout, brussel sprout. Regardless of how you say it, I do hope you try this recipe. It would make an excellent side for Easter brunch or served for dinner alongside salmon or chicken. I recommend cutting the sprout in half no matter what size they are. Why? The best part of a roasted brussels/brussel/Brussels/Brussel sprout are the crunchy leaves that fall off when the veggie is cut in half. There is nothing more delicious than a hot and crispy brussels sprout leaf. Trust me.
