Brussel sprouts are hard to do properly in my opinion, and these were excellent. Would definitely make again!

About

I am not sure how many people are actually fans of Brussel sprouts, but I am definitely one of them! My mom had me try them when I was really young, and despite the fact that they were green and good for me I truly liked them. I hadn't actually had them more than a few times either before the other day. The last time I was at the grocery store they had beautiful, large sprouts so I grabbed a couple handfuls.
