My favorite way to eat them is roasted in the oven. Since my oven went into overdrive last night (and today too), I thought I'd give it a little break and pan fry them with some scallions.
Pan Fried Brussel Sprouts with Scallions
1 container of brussel spouts (mine are sold in little round cardboard buckets)
1 large scallion
2 tablespoons olive oil
Pecorino Romano cheese
Wash and slice the sprouts and remove any discolored outer leaves.
Slice them lengthwise into 2 or 3 slices depending on the size of the sprout.
Toss them in a bowl with 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
Place them cut side down in a pan on medium high heat. Cover and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until sprouts get a nice golden color.
Slice scallion lengthwise into very thin slices. Flip the sprouts over and add the scallions. Cover and cook additional 3 minutes.
Transfer to a bowl and top with shaved Pecorino Romano cheese.
Now if you'll excuse me I have to make 4 desserts, 5 side dishes and a brine a turkey! Enjoy your Turkey Day!
