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!

  • Stir to combine and taste. Adjust seasoning if needed. Add the cheese on top and serve.
