Anyways...a quick recap of the last little bit...

My gramma makes this concoction with horseradish and beets when we have roast beef and I like it so I decided last week to try to make beets and see if I would like them in a bigger dose. I'll be honest, I've decided that I like beets in smaller quantities, but as far as eating an entire beet goes...what I came up with was pretty good. If you're a fan of beets, I'm pretty sure this is something you'd enjoy, if you've never tried beets...give it a whirl, if you don't like beets, well, I guess you're done reading...lol.
Dijon Roasted Beets
1 lb Beets, scrubbed and cut into 1" slices
About 1 Tbsp EVOO
1.5 Tbsp Unsalted Butter, melted
3 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
Salt & Pepper
So, I started off by grabbing some LOCAL beets at Wholesome Pickins (I've talked about them before and you can find more info by clicking the link), preheating the oven to 375F, giving them a quick scrub and slicing them up.
Once they were all sliced up, I placed them on some tinfoil, drizzled them with some EVOO and seasoned them up with some salt & pepper.
From there I wrapped them up into a pouch and placed the pouch on my grill pan to go in the oven. If you're wondering why the the grill pan, there is a method to my madness which you'll see soon.
Once the oven was all ready to go I popped them into the oven for about 30 mins, until they were nice and tender. While I was waiting I took the melted butter and dijon and stirred it all up together. When the 30 mins was up I took out just the foil package of beets and left my grill pan in the oven to stay hot.

Next up I took my Dijon Butter mixture, brushed it on and put them back in the oven for about another 2 minutes per side. I did a flip-brush-flip-brush type thing.
Once it was all said and done I pulled them out, tossed them in a bowl and brushed them up with more of the Dijon Mixture.
And there you have it...Dijon Roasted Beets...not too bad for my first attempt:)
