Have you decided on all of your Thanksgiving sides yet? Did Brussels sprouts make the final list? I usually end up making them about every other year but I must be honest. They are probably one of my top favorite veggies so I make them an awful lot all throughout the year. We chatted last week about saving oven space on Turkey Day so if Brussels sprouts made the cut then how about you just throw them in the crock?!
Cut them in half lengthwise and they are prepped and ready for the slow cooker. Just toss them in with some olive oil, salt, pepper and lemon juice and you are all set. Let them roast on high for a few hours and your holiday or any day side is done! Simple, easy and delicious!

- pinch of pepper
- Wash Brussels sprouts and remove woody or tough ends
- Cut in half lengthwise

I made these in my 3.5 quart slow cooker on high for 2.5 hours.
