Joy of Cooking Sprouts

This garlicky side dish, browned in a skillet, is perfect for Thanksgiving or any other family meal.

Ingredients

12 brussels sprouts

Preparation

1. Trim and halve through the stems of brussels sprouts. Heat butter in a medium skillet over medium-low heat.

Serves 2 to 4.
