I love butter for certain vegetables, and I think it takes out the tad of bitterness that brussels sprouts have, but my cholesterol is only 180, so I can have butter. Olive oil is always good, Swimpy.
Mismi, very simple recipe. I pre-cooked the brussels sprouts in the microwave
to make them more tender. Then I cut them in halves, sauteed bread crumbs
(I used a handful) in butter, add the brussels sprouts and pine nuts. Saute them until they're lightly brown and serve them with sprinkled parmesan.
