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.
