Caramelized Brussels Sprouts

MSCD beginner recipe

I'm a Brussels sprouts newbie. This was my first recipe to try with them, and it turned out great! Very fast and easy. Serve them as a side with any meal or make them the main dish with a side of Deb's Cornbread. If you'd like to spice it up a bit, add 1 tsp. red pepper flakes when you're sautéing the garlic. Freeze leftovers to add to your next vegetable soup.

1 (1 lb.) bag Brussels sprouts (approximately 24), sliced into ribbons, ends removed

¼ of a yellow onion, sliced into ribbons

2 Tbs. minced garlic

2 Tbs. butter

extra virgin olive oil

2 Tbs. honey

2 tsp. Mrs. Dash Table Blend seasoning

1 tsp. sea salt

½ cup sliced almonds

Melt butter and a drizzle of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté for a minute. Add Brussels sprouts and onion. Sauté for a couple minutes. Add seasoning and honey while continuing to sauté for a total of around 5 minutes. Stir in almonds and remove from heat. Serve immediately.
