Brussels Sprouts with Breadcrumbs

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
garlic powder

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.
