I picked up a huge beet at the market and decided to make these beets. It was easy and they were very good. Into my menu planner they go!

These beets are so delicious. The messy part is cooking & peeling the beets. I did this the day before when I was using the oven for something else. The rest takes only minutes effort just before serving. This recipe will be made over & over again
