To me a holiday menu would not be complete without my favorite vegetable, Brussels sprouts. Sprouts roasted in a dutch oven are beyond compare, from Real Simple Magazine, the added crunch of toasted pecans makes this recipe particularly good. If you are not a fan of sprouts you could easily substitute with carrots, thickly sliced on the diagonal. In my 10 inch dutch oven, they roasted with 10 coals in a ring around the bottom and 20 on the lid, in 30 minutes they were crisp tender, lightly browned and totally delicious.
