Parmesan Brussels Sprouts

This is the first time I cooked brussel sprouts ... an easy to make dish. I forgot to time it so the times listed are estimates. I changed a few things but kept it pretty close to the recipe on the package. The Maui onion is a sweet onion similar to the Viladia onion. You may want to increase the seasonings to overcome the strong brussel sprout least the one I ate was strong!

I love brussels sprouts simply prepared just like this. There's just enough flavor to enhance them, but not smother and disguise them. I made this as written, using only the butter and no olive oil. I also added just a pinch of salt. I found these to be very enjoyable. Thanx for sharing!
