Roasting brings out the best in Brussels sprouts: It lightly caramelizes their edges but keeps them tender inside. Don't trim too much from the stem ends of the sprouts since they may fall apart. Country ham imparts saltiness to the dish; if it's unavailable in your market, substitute regular ham. Freeze leftover breadcrumbs for up to 6 months; use them to top macaroni and cheese casseroles.
