Are you guys getting as excited about Thanksgiving as me? It’s going to be the best day EVER!! So don’t mind me while I continue to post all my fav Thanksgiving recipes on a daily basis this week. We have a lot of ground to cover in the next few days and we need to be fully prepared!  To kick things off I want to share with you, what I believe to be the best Brussels Sprouts Recipe there is.

Sautéed Brussels Sprouts (with lemon and garlic) are probably one of my favorite green veggies ever. And especially this time of year. These have made an appearance at our Thanksgiving dinner for the last 9 years in a row and I’ll never forget the first time I served it at my grandparents house.

The day before Thanksgiving I told everyone my menu – and my Uncle looked at me like I was nuts. Sautéed Brussels Sprouts?!? Whaaaaaaat. Who are you? I’m not eating that – is what he said. And I was like, “listen, I’m gonna need you to take a deep breath… and stop acting like you’re a 4 year old (he was 49 at the time). Try them tomorrow and hold your horses.” And then, as predicted, the next day he had 3 servings. THREE SERVINGS PEOPLE!!! If that’s not proof that this is the best recipe than I don’t know what is!

These take almost no time to prepare and you could even clean, trim and prep the Brussels Sprouts the day before so it makes cooking them even easier!

PS – are you thinking of putting this on your Thanksgiving menu? Check out the full What’s Gaby Cooking menu here along with the master prep schedule to keep things organized and on track!

    I actually was going to save this recipe for thanksgiving, buttttt i had Brussel sprouts and made them last night instead. They were perfect. Crispy, and the garlic/lemon was just the right combo of flavors this them. Obviously i will make them again for thanksgiving! Thanks, Gaby!

    I can remember when most people would gag at the mention of Brussels sprouts. They were usually either steamed or boiled, and the smell was repulsive. With the advent of roasting and sautéing, that has all changed. This easy, quick recipe is just one of dozens or recipes I’ve seen in recent years to make this once-maligned vegetable into a socially acceptable topic at the dinner table. Thanks for sharing it.
