Preheat oven to 400 °F.
Wash and scrub the beets to remove any dirt and debris.
Coat each beet with 1 teaspoon of olive oil and rub it into the skin.
With Foil Packets: Wrap each beet in a piece of aluminum foil large enough to completely enclose it.* Place wrapped beets on a large baking sheet.
Without Foil Packets: Place beets in a large cast-iron skillet or another oven-safe skillet. Cover the skillet with a piece of aluminum foil.
Bake for 45 - 75 minutes in the preheated oven. (45 minutes for small beets, 1 hour for medium-sized beets, and 1 hour 15 minutes for large beets.)
You’ll know the beets are done roasting when a knife easily slices through.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and place cut beets in a single layer.
