Brussels Sprouts Your Kids Will Ask For!

The only way I can prepare brussel sprouts and not get one complaint from anyone. These are really the best around.


  1. Cut the end of each brussels sprout off and remove the loose outer leaves; Slice thinly or run through the slicer on your food processor.
  2. Melt enough butter in a pan to coat the bottom of the pan over medium high heat; Add the brussels sprouts and cook until bright green with a little bit of crispy brown on a few edges; Remove from heat; Squeeze half a lime over the cooked brussels sprouts, or use one capful of prepared key lime juice; Serve with salt and pepper for each to add to taste.
  3. Try with shredded carrots too.
  4. The amount of butter is to taste, we are always trying to cut calories, so minimal amounts are better, but if you are all about taste, go for a dollop, you wont be sorry.

Simple, easy and very tasty! I used frozen sprouts, let them thaw some, then sliced. So good with the lime juice and just salt and pepper! Thanks!

My husband and I liked them as did my six year old. My one and two year old weren't interested in even trying them, but I'll hold onto this recipe for the future to try it with them again.

Brussels sprouts are my favorite veggie and I love them prepared simply..... just like this recipe. Since the amounts are left open, I used 1 lb of sprouts, 1 tbsp of butter, a sprinkle of s&p and the juice of half a lime. I loved the flavor the fresh lime juice added. Thanx for sharing this!
