    Quite tasty! But they don't call me the Dilettante for nothin'---I made this even easier by omitting the boiling/blanching step. I sauteed the onion and garlic in butter, dumped the halved sprouts in, added the seasonings, covered, and just let the dish steam itself! Now, we do like our Brussies a little crunchier, so this method worked for us.

    This was an easy recipe to make, compared to the other recipe I use. I had lots more sprouts, in all sizes, so I cut the large ones in half and blanched, then steamed for 5 min. They were plenty tender. I only had the Kraft junk, some dried minced onions, and forgot the oregano. I also used 3-4 cloves garlic. It was a bit spicy, but my DH really liked this better. I like the other recipe better! So we'll have to do both, when we get them in our CSA boxes each year, LOL!

    Outstanding! I've issues with dairy so used Olive Oil and a bit of MollyMcButter as substitute. I also added more sauteed onions than what was called for. Absolutely fabulous..thank u John!

    The butter sauce is excellent. I quartered the brussels sprouts just to cover more surface area with the sauce. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
