This recipe is just wonderful! The browned butter takes the harshness out of the sprouts, and the sage is just wonderful and crispy. I can't wait to have it again this year. We have been using it as part of our Thanksgiving feast since it was publised in RS years ago. I was thinking about finally posting it myself tonight, but you did it for me! Thanks!
