Brussels Sprouts with BreadcrumbsPosted: May 25, 2011 | |
This is my favorite way to prepare Brussels sprouts. Anyone who thinks they do not like Brussels sprouts should try them this way. They are absolutely delicious! I love the way they caramelize. A squeeze of fresh lemon juice just before serving adds a nice touch to the dish.
Brussels Sprouts with Breadcrumbs
1 pound Brussels sprouts, washed, trimmed, and halved
2 tablespoons butter
1/8 cup bread crumbs
salt and pepper
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the Brussels sprouts and boil until just about cooked through, 3-5 minutes. Drain in a colander and set aside.
Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the Brussels sprouts to skillet, increase heat to high, and cook, stirring often, until the Brussels sprouts are well browned in places, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the bread crumbs over sprouts and stir well. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and a dash of garlic powder.
