    Brussels Sprouts
    Jis4Judy responded:
    Hi Chris I thought I allready respnded to this
    But I do love brusselsprouts one of my favorate vegies
    the only thing I find hard is that they do require a bit of butter
    I steam mine but cut a criss cross in the stem end it helps them cook more evenly . I add butter after streaming pour out the water remove the teamer basket put the sprouts in the pan with just a half Tablesoon of real butter a bit of garlic stir over medium heat and yummy ..
    Hugs Judy:)

    Brussels Sprouts are a member of the wonderful cruciferous family of vegetables. i really like them as long as they aren't over cooked. I just had some other day at a deli and they were drizzled with some olive oil and sprinkled with parmesan cheese!
