Every Thanksgiving table needs a little bit of green. Although, these pictures actually date back to March 2010. I just hadn't blogged the recipe yet, and since I was making Brussels Sprouts Sauteed with Bacon again for Thanksgiving, might as well finally get this out of the queue.
While I usually leave Brussels sprouts whole, or just halve them, when I roast them in the oven, I use a different method for sauteing. I like to tear off the leaves of Brussels sprouts as far as I can until I reach the point where the leaves are too tight. Then I thinly slice the Brussels sprouts. The resulting loose leaves and slivers soften quickly and are much lighter to eat.
