This is a great spin on the traditional plain brussel sprouts. Not to mention that the whole family ate it without complaint (a rare feat). The red pepper adds great color to the bright green brussels and the herbs and butter are the perfect compliment. Shredding (peeling leaf by leaf) can be time consuming so feel free to slice brussels instead. So much flavor in this simple side dish.
Want an impressive side for a summer BBQ? This is the way to go. Very little prep time and really no fuss. You can even serive it as an appetizer. I deliberatly use dried spices so I know I've got what I need on hand. My husband doesn't eat dairy, but I imagine topping with a gorgonzola or even a hard cheese like parmesan or romano would be a great addition.
My father conjured up this delicious and fresh appetizer or side dish, inspired by a recipe that he felt "lacked kick". You can vary this recipe based on personal preference very successfully. You can subsitute parmesan for Romano if you must, but it has a milder taste. A phenominal addition to a nicely grilled Rib-eye, Delmonico, or Filet Mignon. Are you a garlic lover? This is a must try!
