We LOVE Brussels sprouts in this house so I've got at least a dozen different ways I like to make them. The way I am bringing to you today is simple and delicious... suitable for a fast weeknight dinner side dish that even those who don't like Brussels sprout too much are bound to enjoy. This recipe is great for masking some of the strong flavor of the sprouts in case some of your guests aren't so keen on them.
How do you like to prepare Brussels sprouts?
Lemon Honey Butter Brussels Sprouts
Ingredients: 2 Pounds Brussels sprouts prepared by steaming or roasting (see directions below)
For the sauce: 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 2 tablespoons honey 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon pepper
To steam the sprouts:
Bring 1/2 inch salted water to boil in a large frying pan. Add Brussels sprouts, cover, and cook until sprouts are *JUST* tender and water has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Please don't overcook them or they tend to get bitter.
While the sprouts are cooking, prepare the sauce by whisking together the melted butter, honey, lemon zest, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside. Once the sprouts are cooked, toss them in the sauce and serve immediately.
