Simple Sautéed Brussels Sprouts

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.
