"Brussels sprouts are misunderstood - probably because most people don't know how to cook them properly." -Todd English
Brussels sprouts make the perfect holiday side dish. You can roast them, steam them, shred them or simply half or quarter them.
There are tons of options, and they make a great vehicle for other flavors. Because they are a bit bitter, add something sweet or salty. For this recipe the sweet and tart cranberries are the perfect counterpoint to the Brussels sprouts, and the toasted pine nuts bring a creamy, savory flavor along with some texture. Simple to make and you can pop it in and out of the oven without a lot of distraction during your holiday meal.
