Delicious sprouts. I enjoyed them and my DS did too. He kept trying to take mine. Thanks Gail!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Toss cleaned and cut sprouts in a light coating of olive oil.
  2. Heat the 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Do not overheat. Place the brussels sprouts in the pan flat side down in a single layer. Sprinkle with a couple pinches of salt. Cover and cook for roughly 5 minutes; the bottoms of the sprouts should only show a hint of browning.
  3. Uncover and increase the heat until the flat sides are deeply browned and caramelized. Add the minced garlic to the pan then turn the sprouts to the rounded side to brown slightly.
  4. Season with additional salt and the freshly ground black pepper. Sprinkle on top your cheese of choice. If desired, dust lightly with breadcrumbs.
