Brussel Sprouts with Truffle Butter

By Veronica46

First off let me start out by saying that I think Brussels Sprouts have gotten a bad rap.  I remember these mooshy, smelly and bitter vegetable that I had to hold  my nose to choke down.  I think that if they were made like this the first time I had them then, I wouldn’t be a Brussels Sprout hater.

This is the quintessential vegetable that is served at most Thanksgiving dinners. Why you ask? I think it is because like pumpkins, they are in season. Why relegate these tiny cabbages to only Thanksgiving?  Just like a lot of other vegetables we think we have to cook them to death. Not so.  I boil mine to crisp tender and then fry them in a pan with some truffle butter. It is a very luxurious treatment for a humble vegetable, but I think it is worth it.  The addition of vinegar gives it a light sour bite that goes so very well with this vegetable.
