Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, toss the brussel sprouts with olive oil (about a tablespoon for each 2 cups)

Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste or try garlic salt (yum!!!) and toss

Place brussel sprouts on a shallow pan and bake for 30-40 minutes, turning or tossing after 20 minutes.

Rest until it is cool enough to touch.

Step 4: Cut Olives Into Quarters or Sixths

While brussel sprouts are roasting, take out the large black olives, preferably pitted (or pit them yourself).

You will need about 1 olive for every 4 brussel sprouts.

Cut the olive in half and then cut the half piece of olive into thirds so you have about 6 olive wedges.

Step 5: Open Brussel Sprout Slit and Stuff With Olive Wedge
