Brussels Sprouts Tops

Brussels sprouts tops can be roasted and cooked exactly like brussels sprouts, only in a shorter period of time. Toss with olive oil and salt, and roast until some of the leaves are golden and crisp. If you’re looking for additional inspiration, lucky for us Jocelyn Cook got right on cooking her tops from the Tuesday share and submitted this amazing looking dish and recipe. Thanks, Jocelyn!
