Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut off the brown bottoms of the sprouts and remove any yellow outer leaves. Then slice in half length wise.
In a bowl, lightly coat with olive oil or bacon grease.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper and lay sprouts down in a single layer. Sprinkle lightly with salt.
Roast for 30-40 minutes, shaking from time to time to help them brown evenly. You want them slightly browned on the outside and tender on the inside.
Remove from oven and serve warm.
