Brussels Sprouts are one of the vegetables I cook often. Sometimes making them the same way after a while gets boring to me. So why not create a deliciously creamy side dish using the Brussel Sprouts. Below is how I made this side dish, including the ingredient list and the full recipe at the bottom.
- Brussel Sprouts
- Heavy Whipping Cream
- Parmesan Cheese
- Salt & Pepper
How to prep the Brussel Sprouts
I prepped my brussels the same way as I normally would. Cut the stem ends off each brussel and then slice the bigger ones in half. Toss the cut Brussels into a cast iron skillet, preferred. Lightly oil and season with your desired seasoning, I use salt, pepper and garlic powder.
Place skillet or pan in the preheated oven and cook for 15-20 minutes.
Once your Brussels have finished cooking, remove from the oven. Place the pan on the stove, add a tablespoon of butter and set to a medium heat. Mix in some onions and mushrooms and sauté for a couple of minutes until they are tender. Add another tablespoon of butter and pour in your heavy whipping cream. Reducing the heat to low and letting simmer for a couple of minutes.
How Do I Serve These?
Brussel Sprouts are best served as a side dish at dinner. I, personally, think they’re best served with meat but if you aren’t a meat person, that’s okay too. These are to be served hot, fresh out of the pan.
This will probably be my new favorite way to make these. I loved the creaminess but also the taste of the Brussels, such a lovely combination. I hope you give this one a try!
