French Brussels Sprouts

  • Lots of fresh Brussels sprouts
  • Butter
  • Lots of fresh garlic
  • At least one cup heavy cream
  • Fresh chopped parsely

    Clean, wash, discard the yellow or spotted leaves, trim the ends, and make a cross on the stem with a small knife. Blanch them in boiling water for approximately 10 minutes.

    Cut them in half or quarter them if large.

    Sauté in a non-stick frying pan with lots of butter and garlic.

    The brussel sprouts will absorb the butter; then add one cup of heavy cream and some fresh chopped parsely. Turn the heat down to low, cover, and simmer for about 8 minutes. If the cream is almost gone, add 1/2 cup more until the sprouts are tender, but not mushy. Salt and pepper to taste.
