Preheat oven to 350°. Wash the sprouts. Peel off the loose, dirty outer leaves until you're left with sprouts that have tightly-wrapped leaves. Cut off the stems and then slice the sprouts in half. Place the sprouts in a bowl and add the olive oil, SALT and PEPPER and HERBS if using. Toss to coat. Spread the sprouts on a baking sheet, cut sides down. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes. If desired, toss with the juice of the lemon half and the bread crumbs. Serve immediately.
