Creamy Brussels Sprouts with Lemon Recipe

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 4 to 6 servings


1 pound Brussels sprouts, cleaned
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
Coarse salt to taste
1/2 cup half and half cream
Juice from 1/2 lemon
Finely-ground black pepper to taste
Red cayenne pepper to taste



Cut the stems from the Brussels Sprouts, halve each one lengthwise, and remove any blemished leaves.  Cut out any large cores.  Slice each in half.

In a heavy Dutch oven, melt the butter.  Add the prepared Brussels Sprouts and salt; saute until they just begin to brown, approximately 5 minutes.

Stir in the half and half cream, cover with a lid, and reduce heat to a low simmer.  Cook until the sprouts are soft but still hold together, approximately 30 minutes.

Remove the lid, stir in the lemon juice and cook, uncovered, for an additional 2 to 3 minutes to further reduce the cream to a glaze.  Sprinkle the black pepper and cayenne pepper over the top.

Remove from heat and serve hot.

Makes 4 servings.
