Garlic Brussels Sprouts

These brussels sprouts are special enough for company and holiday dinners. If you can't find fresh sprouts, try using the frozen ones.


6 servings


1 1/2 pounds fresh Brussels sprouts
4 garlic cloves, chopped
3 teaspoons butter or stick margarine, divided
2 teaspoons olive or canola oil
1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper


Cut an X in the core end of each brussels sprout; set aside. In a large saucepan, sauté garlic in 1 teaspoon butter and oil for 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Add sprouts; toss to coat. Add the broth, salt and pepper; cover and cook for 12 to 14 minutes or until sprouts are tender. Drain; add the remaining butter and toss until melted.
