It’s not Thanksgiving without Sautéed Brussels Sprouts!!
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!
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 7 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. 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!

- 2 pounds Brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut in half
- 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 6 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
- 1 lemon, zested and juiced
- In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and butter over medium high heat.
- Add the trimmed Brussels and sauté for about 10 minutes until golden brown and fork tender, giving them a stir halfway through to ensure they cook evenly
- Once caramelized, add the red pepper flakes and garlic and sauté for 1 minute more. Remove from heat and stir in the lemon zest and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Serve as needed.
