Another staple for Thanksgiving is making sure you have some good veggie options, so instead of having multiple dishes of one type of veggie, I decided why not bundle em up, roast em and serve! These turned out perfectly crisps and made the perfect side..plus with a plate full of food, having something wrapped up and not taking too much room on your plate is necessary..you know exactly what I mean? By the end of the food buffet, you have no room, so this is just a dish that will help your people out…and taste good!
