The most delicious Brussels sprouts recipe ever! Quick and easy, it will have you coming back for more.
Brussels sprouts recipes are a dime a dozen and everyone claims to have the recipe that turn even the most devout Brussels-hater into a Brussels lover. I am about to make that same claim. I’ve been making this recipe all winter long, practically every chance I get, it’s that delicious. Although I’ve always liked Brussels sprouts in many forms, I truly think this is the best way to cook and eat them. And I have turned my die-hard hater of a husband into a lover with this one. He says (and I quote) “I love the way the butter gets all between the leaves of the sprouts”. See that word there? Love. He loves them.
Everyone also claims that the best way to prepare Brussels sprouts is roasting them. Roasting is tasty, no question. But it requires more time to coax the best flavour out of the sprouts, whereas a hot pan can achieve the same delicious results in a matter of a few short minutes. Quite honestly, I developed this recipe out of pure laziness. I was going to try the Brussels Sprouts Chips that my friend Vijay of NoshOn.It did for a guest post here on All Day I Dream About Food. But I’d rather pushed the envelope on getting dinner on the table and I already had another dish in the oven. So I heated up a pan with a little coconut oil, cut the sprouts in half and lay them face down until they browned and caramelized. Then I stirred them around a bit, covered them for another minute to tenderize and they were done. I tossed butter in the pan until it was brown and fragrant, poured it over the sprouts and took a bite. I was quite literally in Brussels Sprouts heaven.
I really have been eating this all fall and winter, ever since I first came up with it. I sometimes make a batch for lunch and it’s all I eat. I told my husband the other day that I was addicted to Brussels sprouts. He laughed and said he thought I was really addicted to browned butter. Smart man.
