Merry Christmas Eve! I really love brussel sprouts and I figured that they are a pretty common Christmas table staple. So I am going to share one of the more recent brussel sprout recipes I tried that I just loved.
Bri is not a huge fan of brussel sprouts. However, he tried these and said that he actually liked them. That is how great this recipe is.
In other news, last night I threw a little party for Bri and his brother's "50th Birthday." They are twins who just turned 25 so I thought that it was cute to combine those ages and call it a 50th! It was such a fun night. A ton of our friends stopped by our place and we just hung out, had some good food, good drinks and it was a blast. It was one of those nights where I am just so incredibly grateful for how many amazing people we have in our lives.
Tonight we are headed to my family's Christmas Eve get together and I am excited for yet another evening full of fantastic people. I hope that everyone out there also has a really lovely holiday season full of friends, family, and of course, good food!
Beer Brussel Sprouts with Parmesan
(adapted from The Homemade Haus)
6 tbsp unsalted butter
2 lbs brussel sprouts, halved
5 cloves garlic, minced
8 oz beer (we used Revolution's Fist City #Chicago)
4 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper
1. Place oven rack in the middle of the oven and turn the broiler on high.
2. In an oven-proof skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Once melted, add in the brussel sprouts and let cook for about 3 minutes. Stir them and continue to cook for another 3-5 minutes stirring occasionally.
3. Add in the minced garlic and continue to cook for another few minutes. Then add in the beer and let cook for another few minutes so that the brussel sprouts become tender.
4. Sprinkle the parmesan over the top and place the pan under the broiler until the cheese starts to melt and the brussel sprouts brown a bit. This took a few minutes and I always watch to make sure that nothing burns.
