Brussels Sprouts were always an off limits food for me up until a few months ago. I had never tried them and they always get such a bad reputation amongst many of my friends. Recently my boyfriend and I were out to dinner and he ordered a side of these. I was like WHAT! Why would you order Brussels Sprouts when you could order sweet potato fries, or creamed spinach or any number of other sides… but I guess he just wanted some Brussels Sprouts. When they arrived at my table I decided that I had to try them… and you know what… they were delicious. Granted they were soaked in butter and salt… but delicious nonetheless.

Seeing as how its the new year and I never cook with butter anyway, I wanted to remake this delicious side dish into something healthy.

Brussels Sprouts are pretty easy to find right now. They are at all of my local farmers market and they have them on the stalk at Trader Joes.

I wanted to add a little citrus flavor to this dish seeing as buttery flavor from the butter will be lost – so I used some of these fabulous lemons.

After they were sauteed and fully cooked I hit them with some grated gruyere cheese and some sea salt as well as freshly ground black pepper. They were perfect. Delicious. I want them for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the next 3 days. Well, maybe not breakfast… but they were truly fantastic.

    I’ve never made brussel sprouts but bought some so I could try this recipe! When cooking, do you leave them on one side for the full 7-8 minutes then turn them all over and cook on the other side? Thank you!

    • Gaby

      Hey Terri! Yes! I leave them on one side for the full 7-8 minutes so you can get a nice caramelization on them!! If they start looking too dark, I’d give them a flip early and then just keep flipping so they cook for a total time for 14-16 minutes 🙂

      can’t wait to hear what you think!!

    oh my these were tasty. i used asiago since it was the only hard cheese i had. brussel sprouts are a favorite of ours. roasted most often but this was as good! Try, Pasta with Brussels Sprout, Mushroom and Cheese Sauce
    (Mollie Katzen, The Enchanted Broccoli Forest),it even wows the Brussel Sprout haters. i add a bit more dried mustard,horseradish and add squirt of lemon juice and either a bit of frank’s hot sauce or cayene when i make this.

    I had the best brussels sprouts last night at a local restaurant and am now craving them – these look fantastic!

    Hated brussel sprouts as a kid, but as I got older I would have them now and again…LOADED in butter!! I saw this picture and was very curious and decided to try them. I had frozen brussels so I made them with the other ingredients (just happen to have a real lemon on hand). And only had the Arugala cheese so I used it, but these were amazing. Thanks for the low carb dish. I may try again with bacon. Wonderful recipe.

    Thanks so much!

    I made these tonight and they were great, despite forgetting the cheese! I can hardly wait until we get sprouts still on the stalks as they taste so much better and I will remember the cheese next time.
