Cole helped make dinner tonight. He did most of the work- I just directed him along the way. Sloppy Joes on garlic buns, braised brussel sprouts (his favorite) and fresh steamed corn off the cob. Wish you could have tasted it! Soo good!
I once heard someone say that most people don't like brussel sprouts because the person who first made the veggie for them didn't know how to make them well. I'm not tooting my own horn, BUT- my kids love brussel sprouts. I don't know if I have any secrets, but here's what I like to do with them.
Braised Brussel Sprouts
2 cups brussel sprouts, trimmed and halved
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons EVOO
savory seasoning like Montreal Chicken seasoning
1/2 cup water
In a large pre-heated pan set on medium-high heat, add 2 tablespoons of butter and let it melt. Add 2 tablespoons EVOO to the melted butter then toss in brussel sprouts. Stir in pan for 3-4 minutes letting the brussel sprouts get a little golden and crispy on the outside. Sprinkle them with a little salt and some Montreal Chicken Seasoning. Add 1/2 cup water to the pan, cover and let simmer for 3 minutes, until the water evaporates and the brussel sprouts are tender.
