Sauteed Lemon-Garlic Brussel Sprouts

Sauteed Lemon Garlic Brussel SproutsI love brussel sprouts… especially when they are extra buttery! My husband on the other hand, isn’t the biggest fan. When I made these the other night we BOTH chowed down on them! These sauteed brussel sprouts turned out so good! The lemon just adds such a fresh, bright flavor! I couldn’t be happier with how these babies turned out. This is a great one if you are looking to get out of your side-dish rut!

Sauteed Lemon-Garlic Brussel Sprouts
  • 1 lb Brussel Sprouts
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ lemon, juiced and zested
  • 3 tbsp gruyere (or Parmesan cheese), grated
  • Koseher salt
  • pepper
  1. Clean the brussel sprouts by trimming off the ends and peeling the outer layer of the sprout off. Cut each one in half.
  2. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.
  3. Once heated, add the halved brussel sprouts to the pan and saute for about 7-8 minutes on each side until the outer part is a caramelized brown and the inside is soft and fully cooked.
  4. Add the garlic half way through the cooking.
  5. Reduce the heat to low and add the lemon zest, juice, salt and pepper.
  6. Stir to combine and taste. Adjust seasoning if needed. Add the cheese on top and serve.
