  1. Heat oven to 375 F.
  2. Trim off the stalk-side ends if the brussels sprouts are large. Pull off any loose outer leaves. Slice in half, lengthwise. Set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together salt, pepper, vinegar, and cayenne pepper.
  4. Using a whisk, slowly drizzle in the olive oil. Continue whisking until mixed.
  5. Line a baking sheet with foil. Place the brussels sprouts in a single layer. Drizzle the balsamic oil dressing over the sprouts. Reserve a little bit for dressing before serving. Toss to coat, making sure brussels sprouts get dressing on both sides.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes, turning once halfway through the time. Sprouts are done when they are lightly browned.
  7. To serve, drizzle with remaining dressing. Best when fresh. Store in covered container in refrigerator up to 3 days.
