Roasted Brussels Sprouts

It's been a longtime since I've posted here, sorry about that but no one reads my blog anyway so ...
I just had to post this recipe. I have always hated Brussels Sprouts, they made me gag. Yuck.
That was until I discovered roasted Brussels Sprouts. Now I absolutely love them.
Here's the method:
Preheat the oven to 400°. If you have a convection oven use the convection roast setting.
Take the desired amount of small Brussels Sprouts, trim them of undesired leaves and slice them in half.
Place them in a large (gallon size) ziplock bag.
Add about a tablespoon of olive oil, seal the bag and shake well to coat.
Next add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Again seal and shake well to coat.
Line a large, sided baking sheet with aluminum foil (nonstick if you have it, if not, spray with cooking spray). Arrange the Brussels Sprouts on the pan cut side down and not touching.
Place on rack in upper 1/3 of oven and roast until well browned, about 20 min, less if using convection. Be careful the golden brown doesn't turn to black.
That's all there is to it. Serve either as a snack or as a vegetable side-dish.
