I subscribe to more than a few foodie blogs and always find myself scanning quite a few more. Shortly before the end of the year, I was looking for a good side dish for my holiday meal and came across this beauty. It looked so festive with the cranberries and pecans and I knew I just had to make it. I did and my mother said it was the best Brussels sprouts that she thinks she’s had.
The pic may be a bit blurry but the taste was clear.
Really, really simple.
Saute up some sprouts after they have been steamed.
Mix together and serve!
