In our home, you will never hear me begging our boys to eat brussels sprouts. Brussels Sprouts are a favorite and enjoyed often. For me, this is simplest way to make tasty, little sprouts. Add them as any side dish. Get creative and add bacon! Sing and Dance- Amanda
24 Brussels Sprouts, cleaned, and halved lengthwise
2 T Olive Oil
2 T unsalted butter
5 Garlic cloves, crushed
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
In a large shallow pan, over medium heat, melt the butter with the olive oil. Let the butter bubble a little then add the garlic cloves and cook until they turn a light browned.
Remove the garlic cloves from oil. Discard garlic. Turn the heat to low.
Place each brussels sprout cut-side down on the pan. Simmer covered for about 10-12 minutes or until the brussels sprouts are nicely browned (cut-side) and tender when pierced.
Place on a serving platter. Season with salt and pepper. If you are feeling crazy, add shredded Parmesan cheese.
