Better Brussels Sprouts

This is the only way my kids will eat Brussels sprouts! It’s actually ideal for me because this dish is fast, easy and healthy, and it makes a lovely side. Quick-cooking Brussels sprout halves are available in the prepackaged salad aisle at the grocery store. They’re a timesaver if you can find them, but you can always just buy whole ones and slice them in half. —Teri Rasey, Cadillac, Michigan

    I’m sorry but I tried them and I’m a bigger fan of the steamed. I did steam them then added the onions and nuts and used garlic powder and when they were done they were good. Next time I will have to do something different with the garlic as it didn’t turn out as well as I thought it would. But it still was good.
