Italian Brussels Sprouts

When I was a little fat kid, you couldn’t get me to eat my veggies… unless it was deep fried. Even to this day, even though I can tolerate it, veggies aren’t my go-to thing. However, oddly enough, I really like brussel sprouts. When done right, they’re kinda “meaty” and have a really good texture. This particular recipe makes these little “cabbage babies” amazingly delectable! Bon app├ęttit!
