Thanksgiving Sides Part 2 - Colorful Baked beets

I loved baked beets.  They are delicious, easy to make and will brighten up and dinner table. So here is Thanksgiving Sides Part 2...

2 large red beets (or as many as needed)
2 large golden beets (or as many as needed)
parchment paper

Step #1- Preheat oven to 400*.  Wash beets and wrap in parchment paper.  Place in glass dish or on baking sheet and bake until fork tender (at least 1 hour pending on size of beets)

Step #2 - Let beets cool enough to touch.  Unwrap and peel beet skins. Please note, your hands will get messy, but that's part of the fun.  If you have kids, they will probably love to get in on the action. Tip: Peel the golden beets first then the red.

Step #3 - Chop (golden first, then red) and serve. I used the parchment to keep the cutting board from being dyed. Serve room temp, hot, or cold and for fabulous option, add some goat cheese.
