Adventures in Everyday Entertaining
I have been in love with making Brussels Sprouts ever since I participated in the Creative Kitchen Challenge last summer when we were still Beyond the Green Door. They are not only tasty but I found them to be some of the most versatile vegetables around!
This recipe is a quick but elegant side dish, perfect for holiday entertaining — or all year round! The teaspoon of sugar does a wonderful job of caramelizing the sprouts and shallots ever so slightly for the perfect hint of sweetness.
