Garlic Buttered Brussels Sprouts

As I mentioned yesterday Charles did all of the cooking for us. We had brussels sprouts with our dinner; you’ve got to love fresh brussels sprouts.  They are so easy to prepare and are way tastier than the frozen kind.  They are kind of fun to grow in the garden too.  We’ve grown them a couple of times.  Brussels like the cooler weather so planting late or early in season is the key.  They grow from the bottom up so when harvesting you pick off the bottom sprouts and the plant gets taller and grows more sprouts as the weather permits.  Anyway, here’s how he fixed them yesterday ~

Garlic Butter Brussels Sprouts

  • 1 pound brussels sprouts
  • 2 clove garlic – minced
  • 3 Tbs butter
  • salt and pepper

Wash and trim brussels sprouts.  In large pot bring 2 quarts water to boil; parboil brussels sprouts for 3 minutes. Drain, remove from heat, and cover with cool water until cool enough to handle.  In medium skillet melt butter over medium high. Cut brussels sprouts in half and sauté about 8 minutes until cut sides of brussels sprouts have begun to brown and are desired tenderness. Add garlic and salt and pepper if desired.  Toss together and heat another 2 minutes to release garlic before serving.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
