Brussel Sprouts with Walnuts & Cranberries


Alton Brown did a show on Brussel sprouts, and this recipe sounded really good!


I tweaked it a little, using less butter and using walnuts instead of pecans.


8 ounces of fresh brussel sprouts

1 tablespoon of butter

1 ounce of walnuts, chopped

1/6 cup of craisins. (20 grams)

Shred the brussel sprouts with a grater or food processor.  In a saute pan, melt the butter and add the nuts.  Toast for several minutes, then add the shredded brussel sprouts. Salt and pepper to taste, and cook over medium high heat for 4 to 5 minutes.  Keep turning to evenly cook the brussels.

Divide into 2 servings and top each with half of the craisins. 

So good!

Sorry, but no matter how hard I try .. and I have REALLY tried .. I can not and will not ever again eat a brussel sprout. Dirt clod.

I even tried dehydrating them, and eating them raw. Ugh.

Sorry. Vee at
