Directions:
Pre-heat oven to 405 degrees.
Halve sprouts and generously lather with olive oil.
Place halve side down in baking dish or cast iron pan.
Sprinkle with salt. 
Bake about 15 minutes or until edges and bottom of sprouts begin to brown and sprouts are tender.

The key here is salt.  A generous amount of salt really makes these sprouts flavorful. Be careful, don't over do it. These have a woodsy, rather earthy taste and almost as though they came off the grill. I think you'll enjoy them.
