3 Tablespoons Butter
1/4 cup chopped, toatstes nuts (walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds or pecans)
1 pound of Brussels sprouts (about 2 cups)
With a knife make a shallow “x” on the bottom of each sprout (this helps them steam evenly). Steam them for 10-15 minutes, remove from heat and cut each sprout in half. While these are cooking toast the nuts in a dry skillet until they smell fragrant. Melt butter on medium heat until it begins to bubble and add brussels and toss evenly to coat. turn carefully for 3-5 minutes and remove to a dish. Top with nuts and serve.
