Brussel Sprouts and Onions in a Sweet Caramelized Butter Sauce

I just can't stop dancing today - it's going to be an awesome workout day :) Here's another one for you.

I'm not sure about you, but I love brussel sprouts - I always have. Those cute little baby cabbages are so deliciously tasty.

20 brussel Sprouts
1/2 sweet onion
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp brown sugar
salt and pepper to taste

1. Sauté the onions with butter for 15 minutes on low heat. Boil the brussel sprouts for 10 minutes, or until you can stick a fork into them easily. Do not over cook or they will loose their bright green color. This is due to the degradation of chlorophyll.

2. Add the brussel sprouts, sugar, salt and pepper to the onions and sauté for a couple more minutes.


  1. I love Brussels sprouts and your recipe really sounds yummy!
