"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

4pounds mixed small beets with tops
¼cup olive oil, divided
¼cup (½ stick) unsalted butter
2cups coarse fresh bread crumbs

Directions:
Preheat oven to 400°F. Trim beet tops to ½ inch and place beets in a shallow baking pan. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the oil, tossing to coat, and spread in a single layer. Cover pan tightly with aluminum foil.
Roast until beets are tender when pierced with a sharp knife, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool 30 minutes. Peel, discard skins, and cut in half. ( I cooked them over 1 and a half hours!)

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook, swirling occasionally, until browned and nutty-smelling, about 2 minutes. Add bread crumbs and cook, stirring often, until toasted and fragrant, about 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and stir in chives and parsley.

Toss beets with sherry vinegar, shallot, honey, and remaining 3 tablespoons oil. Serve beets topped with bread crumbs and flaky salt.

Depending on size of beets, may help to cut them as they take a long time to cook.
