Brussels Sprouts with Brown Butter and Sage

Serves 6-8



2 pounds of Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons butter

6-8 fresh sage leaves, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste


1. Preheat the oven to 425F.

2. Toss the halved sprouts with olive oil.

3. Put the Brussels sprouts sliced-side down on a baking sheet, and put in the oven for 10-12 minutes, or until soft.

4. While the sprouts are roasting, heat butter in a small sauté pan over medium heat. Cook sage until butter is lightly brown and you start to smell the sage, about 2-3 minutes.

5. When the sprouts are done roasting, remove from oven and pour butter and sage mixture over. Toss to coat, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
