      Brussels Sprouts, oh Brussels Sprouts, you are indeed tasty and delicious little treats with all these nuts, shallots fennel and just plain yumminess. Very easy to put together too. I followed this exactly except, I put the sprouts into the microwave and cooked them there, a pan roasted the shallots, fennel, and threw the little sprouts in at the end just to crisp up. I reduced the sugar, broth and nuts down to a wonderful syrup reduction (I confess in tasting more then a teaspoon worth!) and gently put this on the sprouts and oh delicious reduction all together and sprouts were all...........gone. Thank you so much mikekey! Making these for Thanksgiving as well.
